Exactly What Needs to Happen for Jrue Holiday to Win NBA MVP This Season?

Exactly What Needs to Happen for Jrue Holiday to Win NBA MVP This Season?

Friend of the Level and Sixers blogger Michael Levin takes a detailed look at what needs to happen around the NBA this season for Jrue Holiday to be named the 2012-13 NBA MVP. Why would he do that you ask? Because some people are actually throwing the Damaja's name out there as a dark horse candidate for the honor.

Among the exact things that would need to happen, as Leving suggests: "Derrick Rose's ACL explodes, shattering his leg entirely. In the
explosion, some ACL shrapnel gets stuck in Joakim Noah's eye and he goes
blind." Or "Nobody signs Allen Iverson."

Go check out the whole list for some lulz.

UPDATE: We are big Jrue Holiday fans, for the record, and anticipate big things for him in 2012-13. Just not an MVP.

Today's Lineup: Tommy Joseph starts for first time since Wednesday

The juggling of Rhys Hoskins and Tommy Joseph at first base will continue today in Atlanta.

After only appearing as a pinch-hitter in last night's loss to the Braves, Joseph will draw back into the lineup at first for the Phillies in today's series finale. He'll bat fifth, right behind Hoskins, who's in the clean-up spot for manager Pete Mackanin.

With Hoskins, a natural first basemen who's been adjusting to left field, tearing up the scene, questions are aplenty over what the Phils plan to do at the position. Hoskins isn't going anywhere, obviously, so the questions center around Joseph. Any at-bats he gets this last week are important for his audition.
Joseph is hitting .240 on the season, but does have 22 homers and 68 RBIs on the season.

Today marks Joseph's first start since Wednesday's win over the Dodgers. He appeared as a pinch-hitter Thursday and last night, but did not play at all on Friday.

Hoskins is back in left this afternoon. He's up to 18 homers and 41 RBIs on his short MLB season. He did contribute an RBI double in last night's loss.

J.P. Crawford, who's batting seventh, moves back to his natural shortstop spot today after playing second last night for Cesar Hernandez. Freddy Galvis will have the afternoon off. Crawford has a .245 average and 6 RBIs in 17 games with the big club.

Odubel Herrera has the afternoon off, as well.
