We asked NBA writers from ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine, as well as NBA analysts from ESPN, to provide their choices for NBA Most Valuable Player, ranked from 1 to 5.
Here is Dr. Jack Ramsay's ballot:
Key player on the team with the best record. Manu is their go-to player. He is an incredible shot-maker at crunch time and will get the steal, block or charge on defense.
He's an amazing driver-finisher at the hoop. He has added the 3-point weapon to his game. He's an excellent passer in traffic, a hard worker on defense and a dedicated team player.
| Kobe Bryant
He never rests, is always focused on offense and defense and is a big shot-maker but able to find the open man if the defense doubles him. He's a fierce competitor and team leader.
He's a highly skilled player capable of a triple-double every game. He's a team player, willing to pass with good technique to find the open teammates. He's a hard worker on defense.
He's a great defender and rebounder and the key to Orlando's defense. He's made a vast improvement on his offense and makes the 15-footer. He's become an adequate passer from the double-team.
