As one writer asked, “Who else is there to vote for?” Some might answer Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio, but a late-season knee injury ruined his slim chances. More than that, Irving alone makes the Cavs competitive. He can dribble, drive, shoot and pass -- and despite being the No. 1 overall draft pick, he’s better than most folks envisioned. The question isn’t whether Irving deserves the award, it’s if he’ll be the first guard to ever win it via unanimous vote. (Big men Griffin, David Robinson and Tim Duncan are the only other three to win it unanimously.) Runners-up: Ricky Rubio, PG, Timberwolves; Kenneth Faried, F, Nuggets. - Sam Amico
