The NBA season is approaching the business end and the teams with realistic championship aspirations are becoming even more clear.

At this time of the season, teams begin to earn that precious play-off berth and they begin to reach the height of their seasons.

Head coaches are preparing for the post-season and players are finding ways to stay healthy for the play-offs.

But this time of season brings into focus another aspect of the NBA that every player sets their sights upon.

The coveted NBA MVP award is given to the best player every year and brings with it as much prestige as any individual award in professional basketball.

This year, the award would appear to be between Houston Rockets James Harden, Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook and the Golden State Warriors Steph Curry.

So when TMZ posed the question to Nick Young of the LA Lakers, he opted for a previously unnamed candidate.

Young appears to think that his team-mate Kobe Bryant is more deserving of the MVP award for the 2014/15 season.

Bryant may only have played 35 games but Young feels he is MVP-worthy and the number may be behind him.

The Lakers won 11 games with Kobe and just six without their future Hall of Famer whose season is already over.

The Lakers are 50% better with Bryant in the team so perhaps he does carry more weight to his team than anyone else?

Kobe suffered a shoulder injury and has been out ever since and will not return now until next season when the Lakers will be hoping for better fortunes.

Down low

The Lakers haven't had a good year this year with them just winning 17 games and are already eliminated from the post-season.

Los Angeles are bottom in the Pacific division and are five games behind their closest rivals the Sacramento Kings.

Rumours are rife however that the Lakers could be set to pull off an off-season swoop with names like Rajon Rondo being linked with a move to America's second city.
