    I went with Dre Day. Roy is the better player, but Andre kept us afloat when we needed it most in January as Roy was nursing his sore hamstring. Without Andre's run in January, I think we would be lucky to even be in the 8th seed discussion, probably more likely seeded around New Orleans. In a season full of injuries, it has to matter that only he and Marty have played in all 72 games. His consistency has been a Godsend to a team full of young, up and coming players.

    I went with Nico Batum. The team just seems so much more complete ever since he returned. In fact, since he was moved into the starting lineup, the Blazers 11-4 over those 15 games. His blocks are game-changers and he has turned himself into the team's most reliable downtown threat. There isn't a stat for always checking the opponent's best weapon, but he does it on a nightly basis and does it well, especially for his age. When he is on his game, there is no doubt the team rises to a whole other level.

    The MVP is always going to be Brandon until his career enters it's downward arc, but just for fun, I'll pick Andre Miller. He's been better than I would have expected, especially after a less than auspicious start to the season.

    I feel like I should pick Roy, but I went with my gut and picked Dre. I think he has been Portland's most consistent player in the 2nd half of the season, and I don't know what they would have done without him. Very much a team player.

    I voted for Roy... buuuuuut. One player I think that was KEY to us doing as well as we did this year that isn't on here... Juwan Howard. Without that guy on our team, we're playing Jeff Pendergraph and Dante even more than what they're playing now and I think we lose at least 8 more games because of the veteran presence. With that being said. When Roy was out, we were easily a .500 team.

    I went for Miller. Not only has he been a rock solid player, he still manages to surprise opponents after years and years in the NBA. He's managed to work out his early troubles with the team (Remember that? Barely.), and has provided a veteran presence. Besides, I absolutely love his and-1 plays, and it seems like the Blazers always pick up their game after Dre drives right into the paint and draws a foul.
    I am a fan of watching Andre Miller rise up above the rim. Which happens. Sometimes.

    Nic !!  He is the full player on both ends of the floor.  If Brandon put in more effort consistantly on d, he would have got my vote .

    My vote's for Pendergraph. He came outta a bad injury, and stepped in to play some tough ball, after Joel and Greg got hurt. He also gets the team all fired up before the game. For bringing an intensity level that normally you wouldn't find in a rookie, J.P. deserves a nod for team MVP.

    Brandon is forever MVP in my heart but I'm going Money Miller on this one :) Dre has done soooo much for this team throughout all the injuries, ups and downs. When Brandon was nursing his own injury Andre was keeping us afloat by leading this team to big wins. Dre Day for life! (Nico was a close second considering the 180 turn this team took upon his return and who doesn't love a Batum Block Party)

    I would say LaMarcus gets my vote..guy misses just 3 games..plays over 37 minutes a game, shoots close to 50%, total offensive stats are better then Miller. True Miller plays the point, which should get an award by itself in Coach McMillian's system. All in all when Roy went down, L.A. became the go-to guy, and now has his rebounding up past 8 per game. Maybe not yet the franchise player, but if he could get a block a game..Look out!.. Go Blazers!!

    Roy is our best player, but are not in the playoffs without Andre this season. He got my vote.

    I can understand why people would vote for LaMarcus. When he plays up to his potential, the team just skyrockets to elite status as it finally allows Roy to play with another star. If Aldridge is on his A-game in the playoffs, I don't doubt for one second we win our 1st round series, regardless of who we play (except L.A. in the 1st round).

    Gotta go with Roy. LA is my runner up. Nods to Batum and Camby for some great late-season additions.

    Miller was all over the place early in the year (like a lot of our guys). He had really helped save us in some games, but I think he's also cost us some. Not many, but I didn't trust him earlier in the year. I think he'll be a much better candidate next year now that he knows everyone's potential.

    I went for Nico because of how our record has been since he came into the starting line up and how he has performed since he came back from his injury - continually improving his game on both ends of the court. He is consistent game after game and no one on the team can play better D than Batum. After him, Roy, Dre, and LMA would have to be tied. Each one of them bring something and all three know how to step it up when the team needs something. DC, Pendergraph, and Jay Bay all bring spark and energy to the court and have so much heart - they know how to ignite the team. Howard and Camby have been the presence we have needed down low since Oden and Pryz went down with injuries for the season. There is not a single guy on this team who doesn't deserve a shout for something they do. I love watching this team and cant wait for the playoffs!

    Andre showed yet again last night why this team leans on him so much. 26 pts, 6 dimes, 4 rebs, 3 stls..just another crazy effort. His one-man fast breaks as MB called it, were crucial is us getting our much needed easy baskets. I mean, Russell Westbrook, is a candidate  for Most Improved Player, and he just sat him down and took him to school. Can't wait to see what he does next season with Oden along for the Dre Day ride.

    This was a tough one for me, I really do think all of them have done their best to step up when the odds have been against them.  I love Batum, love Roy & LA but really Miller is very underrated.  It still amazes me to see him surrounded by the opponents and still making it to the hoop and scoring.  Not to mention that dunk, yes it might have been only one but the dude is not a dunker!!  Go BLAZERS!!!

    I am a fan of the Blazers once again, rising above all odds and injuries!

    Without a doubt, in my book it is Dre. He has been the glue for most of the season and continues to be consistant. He hits timely free throws and plays overall smart heads-up basketball. Not to mention he is in great physical shape...always! I know the B-Roy is always going to be great and is always going to impact this team in a positive manner, but with all things considered this year, and b-roy missing a big stretch of games, it was because of Miller that we didn't fold and go down the drain.

    peace out,

    MVP is always going to be naturally Brandon Roy for me. If you take Brandon off this team, obviously they aren't nearly as good. But if you take Andre or even LaMarcus out of the equation, and this team flounders, too. Both of them are such a big reason for this team's success, and the way they responded and stepped up in Brandon's absence has been nothing short of fantastic.

    The team's MVP not named Brandon Roy would either have to go to Andre or LaMarcus for me.

    For me Brandon Roy is MVP of Portland Team !!!. If he was healthful all season he could grab 99 percent of votes, ofcourse Andre and LaMarcus are also very good players but for me ROY is super star !!!

    Considering everyone on that list, except Miller missed playing time this year im going with Miller as 2010 MVP. It was a bit shaky at first, and it looked as though we made a bad choice but Miller has worked out for us and gives us another floor general that can do everything (except maybe hit a 3 :p). Roy is always gonna be this teams MVP but without Miller (and effort from Howard, Webster, DC, JP, etc. etc.) we'd be talking lottery instead of playoffs.
