Who's the MVP

2010-2011 team MVP discussion

So i know that over and over it has bee said that this team has no "stars" or next-level  player to key on. But after careful inspection of our season stats it really appears as if we do. Check out how this season is shaking out from a statistical standpoint for a few players and see what you think.




Preston! Knowles - team leader in scoring*, points*, minutes, field goals attempted*, field goals made*, 3-pointers attempted*, 3-pointers made*, defensive rebounds, and fouls

Peyton Siva - team leader in games started, assists**, turnovers, steals, free throws attempted*, free throws made*

Chris Smith / Rakeem Buckles - leaders in 3 point-FG percentage

Kyle Kuric - leader in free throw percentage*

Terrence Jennings - leader in rebounding and offensive rebounds

Gorgui Deng - leader in blocks

* = leads category by a wide margin

** = his total is more than double the closest teammate's total

it really looks to me like we do have 2 stars. Preston! and Peyton have completely set thmselves apart from everyone else when it comes to their importance (or value) to this team. There are a lot of good contributers, and I listed a few, but when it comes down to it our starting backcourt carries this team on a nightly basis.

But isn't that what we all expected all along. This was supposed to be a team that was dominated by its guards and everyone else was there to either fill in the holes or to pick up the pieces.

It looks like to me that the emergence of these 2 stars if the source of basically all the success we've had so far this season. Preston! is our engine and Peyton is our steering wheel. They work together to drive the ship and give the rest of our squad a chance to do their thing.

So the question remains, who is our MVP so far this season? Who will be the MVP from here on out? And is the answer to both of those questions the same or different?
