If Lakers ever start playing well, do you think Kobe could end up winning another MVP?

Of course hes not the best in the league anymore but hes putting up the best percentages of his career and scoring nearly 30ppg at 34 years old...

The Lakers would have to get the best record in the league but it would still be close

Yes but Lakers would have to have a better record than the Thunder, Heat, and possibly Knicks, which isnt going to happen.

Lakers would repeat and win everything.

You never put a limit onto the Citizens.

Yes, but the chance's quite small.
Except if Lakers got 22 Win Streaks.

The Lakers most likely ain't getting the best record at this point. If it happened, I can't see why not.

I don't see why he shouldn't, although he have to worry about that other guy in the EAST, who's been playing pretty great as well. Carmelo Anthony.
So it might very well come down to team record... and matchups. Who outplays who, and which matchups.

If he nets a top 3 record in the West somehow and he keeps up this efficiency, I think it's possible he can win another MVP, but it'll be a tight race between him, Melo, Durant, and Lebron.

yeah I agree, he has a much higher fg% and efficiency rating than he usually does, i doubt it'll stay that way tho. even if it did i doubt he'd beat out Durant or LeBron.

No, unless somehow Kobe can keep up his stats (even though with his current stats, he wouldn't win MVP even if Lakers were #3 seed, so he would have to get better) and magically games start becoming wins instead of losses.

If Lakers start doing good, it most likely means other players are gonna being stepping up, and if that happens I doubt he will still be shooting like 21 times a game. So his stats are gonna go down, then he won't be able to win MVP.

Carmelo will not win the MVP. He just scores the ball and sometimes rebound. He doesn't do anything else. He is trying to play, he is trying to pass, he is trying to rebound. Still just the scoring for him. He won't win the MVP if he can't contribute on some other ways.

Melo is averaging 28 ppg, 6 rpg, 2 apg and his eff is +23 while Kobe averages 29.5 ppg, 5 rpg, 5 apg and his eff is +25,8. So clearly the better player is Kobe but only on the stat sheet. Carmelo has brought his team more wins, they are playing like never before. Kobe on the other hand is playing great but he needs more help from his teammates. If the Lakers play really good and for example like the Knicks then Kobe would be in the same spot as Carmelo competing for the MVP but no he is on the sixth spot in the MVP ladder while Melo is first. I totally agree and understand that he is first but he will drop eventually. Right now i got Durant on the first place on my MVP ladder.

No he does not. The thing is, and I hate to bring up this stat, is that the Lakers are TERRIBLE when he scores 30+ points. So, when he puts up MVP performances, his team is terrible, but when he puts up pretty average star-player performances, the team has a better shot at winning. He'll be good, but I don't see him being able to win the MVP this year.

Yep, I don't see why he wouldn't if the Lakers got the top 2-3 record in the west (which won't happen). I'd love to see Kobe win another MVP before he retires. Unfortunately, Lebron will hog another MVP award :(
