08:15 AM ET 01.05 | The season is young, but fans in Toronto would like to submit a candidate for MVP. [The oft-maligned Andrea Bargnani] continues to sizzle under the direction of [Dwane Casey]. The Cavs looked lost trying to defend the swift 7-footer. Whether nailing from deep repeatedly or faking veterans Antawn Jamison and Ryan Hollins out of their sneakers, Bargnani was cooking. How well is Bargnani playing this season -- for the first time ever and the first time since Chris Bosh was in town, a smattering of possibly well-lubricated fans were chanting M-V-P when Bargnani went to the line. MVP? Let's not get crazy, people, but Bargnani certainly has played at an elite level so far.

He's finally coming around to playing up to his Euro potential. The guy can be just as deadly as Gasol and Dirk. Do the damn thing!

Start chanting that your team sucks. He won't win the MVP either.
