Winter Forecast: Most Valuable Player

Our Winter Forecast has predicted the East standings and West standings. Now it's time to move on to awards:

Who will be the Most Valuable Player?

For foresight, we consulted with 115 of ESPN's best basketball minds, including contributors from ESPN.com, the TrueHoop Network, TrueHoop TV, Daily Dime Live, ESPN TV, ESPN Radio, ESPN Deportes, espnW, ESPN The Magazine, ESPN Insider, ESPN Fantasy, ESPN Games, ESPN Dallas, ESPN Los Angeles, ESPN Boston, ESPN Chicago, ESPN New York, ESPN Stats & Information, ESPN Topics and ESPN Analytics.

And yes, our voters slid their ballots under the door before the season started.

To participate in the discussion and perhaps get your opinion published on this page, #NBApicks is the Twitter hashtag to use. Or you can just follow along at @NBAonESPN. We'll be rolling out the predictions every 45 minutes starting at 11 a.m. ET.

Enjoy, argue, agree, disagree ...
