Tiger Woods leaves Dwight Howard out of the NBA MVP race

With Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade taking turns putting on spectacular shows over the past week, the talk around the NBA has re-focused on the NBA MVP race. Everyone seems to have their own opinion, and one high profile Magic season ticket holder gets in on the action, saying it’s probably a two-man race – even though he gets a chance to see Dwight Howard’s dominance up close and personal on a regular basis. “D-Wade has now gotten himself into the conversation,” Tiger Woods told the Associated Press after finishing his final round in the CA Championship at Doral, only a few miles from the Heat’s arena. “He’s doing more with less, obviously. But I think it’s probably going to come down to LeBron and Kobe.” Woods admitted that it will be tough for Wade to win the award, since Miami’s record isn’t close to Cleveland’s or Los Angeles. “You can’t take anything away from D-Wade,” Woods said. “But MVPs are usually given to the guys who actually have a better supporting cast, for some reason.” I’m surprised that Tiger didn’t at least give Dwight a little love, but he might have and the reporter just left it out of his story. Sometimes your editor only gives you so much space.
