I can completely understand why a college would put together a website to try and get their kid an award like the Heisman, but when pro teams do it, I find it a little bit weird. Everyone knows that Lebron James is going to win the MVP Award this year, but Cleveland thought they could help out the star by creating a new website called....."LebronIsReallyReallyReallyReallyReallyReallyGood.com". Here is the tagline....
Welcome to LeBronIsReallyReallyReallyReallyReallyReallyGood.com! Please check out all the information that helps explain why LeBron James deserves the 2009 NBA MVP Award. Why six Reallys in the address? Because this is LeBron’s sixth season in the NBA! Enjoy the tour. Just mouse over each of the Reallys above and go directly to each of the six different areas that make the case REALLY clear who should be the 2009 NBA MVP… LeBron James!I know it's all in good fun, but unless you're Shaquille O'Neal going up against a white point guard, I'm pretty sure you don't need an MVP website. Especially in the NBA where it's pretty obvious the criteria needed for an MVP. Either lead the league in scoring or be in the top three, have rebounds and assists nearing 7 per game, and lead your team to a high seed in the Playoffs.
Obviously this year is a bit of an anomaly, because there are technically three worth candidates, but only Lebron qualifies in all three facets. Seems pretty obvious that he's the leader in the clubhouse. Cleveland probably could have saved some money on GoDaddy fees.
