: : : Should the league MVP be the best player on the team that finished first or a true standout on a team that finished second or third? Lopsided leagues often have several "good" players on the best team while a truly "great" player may emerge on another team. Thoughts?
: : I vote for the best player on the best team unless there is truly a standout who is head and shoulders above everyone else. If that player is a little better then Co-MVP would be considered.
: Should come from the top team. And from a 4th place team.
I slways felt, as a coach, that the MVP was the best player on the best team, most of the time, because without her, they would not have won a league title. There were always exceptions. This is why I always promote leagues to give an MVP award and a Player of the Year award, that is based on stats. A player could win both, but having the two awards settles the argument that the girl on the league champion who averaged 10 points a game, but was the reason that team won every game deserves the MVP over a kid who averaged 20 points a game on the 3rd or 4th place team, took the most shots, but has the stats.
