|It's early, but based on how he improved last year and during the World Championships this summer, and now how's he's dominating early on, I think he'll be in the running for MVP with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Tim Duncan, Steve Nash and whoever. He'll average 26/12 with close to two blocks, and he'll shoot in the upper 50s from the floor (maybe even 60), and mid-80s from the line. He will be the most efficient offensive player in the league by far. Once he gets the ball in position, he's the most reliable scorer in the league. Tim Duncan would be up there, but you put him on the line, and he hits 60 percent. Forget about Shaq at this stage. Even Tracy McGrady has noticed, admitting that his job is to distribute more and get the ball to Yao.
