Outlet Pass: Tiger, MVP Howard + Sun

“Even Tiger Woods has an opinion on one of the NBA’s hottest topics—the MVP race. In Woods’ mind, Miami’s Dwyane Wade merits consideration for the top NBA individual honor, but the world’s No. 1 golfer expects either Cleveland’s LeBron James or the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant to actually win the award. “D-Wade has now gotten himself into the conversation,” Woods said after finishing his final round in the CA Championship at Doral, only a few miles from the Heat’s arena. “He’s doing more with less, obviously. But I think it’s probably going to come down to LeBron and Kobe.” Woods’ opinion is an educated one: He’s an avid basketball fan and sees plenty of Orlando Magic games when he’s at his central Florida home.”

“Nowhere in the MVP chatter were there highlights of Dwight Howard’s seventh game this season with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds, one more than the rest of the league combined. Nowhere were his three blocked shots or four dunks, each category adding to NBA-best totals. How, Howard had to wonder, could he be leading the NBA in rebounding (14.0) and blocked shots (3.0) — something that has been done only four times before in league history — and not be mentioned among the NBA’s most elite players? How could his team be tied in the loss column with the defending champion Boston Celtics and he not even get a sniff in the MVP consideration?”
