Final Thoughts: Both Rajon Rondo and Rudy Gay were potential candidates as well, but I have to go with Belinelli, Collison, and Cousins as my top three. Out of those three, my MVP is Collison.

Collison has played very well for the first time under George Karl’s system, and his efficiency level has remained constant throughout all six games. With his all-around game of defense, shooting, and distributing is what I thought made Collison more efficient compared anyone else on the roster this postseason.

Overall, Collison is my preseason MVP, but what made this decision process so encouraging was not who won, but who was nominated. Cousins, Rondo, Collison, Gay, and Belinelli, all will be part of the main rotation entering next season.

Seeing them play well in the preseason already, now gives fans a glimpse of what is about to come hopefully in the regular season.
