The dude takes his team back to the Conference Finals tonight, after gutting out TWO seven game series. He's short Amare, heck, he's missing a total of 3 starters from last year. A key bench contributor (Jim Jackson) moved on, and neither Brian Grant or Kurt Thomas materialized into effective contributors. He's taken Shawn Marion into MVP talks (after doing the same for Amare last year), made Boris Diaw into the biggest trade steal since Wallace/Atkins for Hill, and they're back in the second biggest dance. I wasn't sold on him being an MVP until I saw how he made WHOEVER his supporting cast was better. This guy could polish a turd so bright that people would pay like it was gold. Does he get some damn props? 29 points, 11 assists in 38 minutes. 7 man rotation, all 7 scored in double figures. 4 of 5 from the arc, the little white dude with no hops brings big game in big games. Raja Bell? Tim Thomas? Boris Diaw? James Jones?
