@NBAonESPN Not feeling Blake at #NBAMVP #9, he's been very good but Chris Paul is winning their games, not Blake.Wed Feb 15 19:57:31 via web

@NBAonESPN don't agree with Blake at 9. How can you be in MVP discussion if there is a more valuable player on your team? #NBAMVP #LAfor9Wed Feb 15 20:05:34 via Twitter for iPhone

10. LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE, BLAZERS  

2011-12 STATS

@NBAonESPN Nice to see LMA get the respect he deserves for carrying the injury-prone Blazers. Hope his injury doesn't set them back.#NBAMVPWed Feb 15 19:33:25 via web

@aldridge_12 is a straight up beast, I'm glad the league is starting to recognize his talent. He's a top 10 player right now #NBAMVPWed Feb 15 19:30:47 via web
