Default Dirk Nowitzki Named MVP

Dirk Nowitzki has been chosen as the NBA's MVP, according to the Associated Press.

I would say it's a solid selection, as Dirk averaged 25 points and 9 rebounds per game, while leading Dallas to an NBA-best 67 wins, but it seems a little odd considering the Mavericks were ousted from the first-round of the playoffs. Nowitzki is the first NBA MVP in 25-years not to win a single playoff series.

Dirk did set career-highs in field-goal percentage (50.2%), three-point percentage (41.6%) and free-throw percentage (90.4%) this season; no other player in the league topped 50, 40 and 90 percent.
