ESPN radio guy Dan LeBetard has raised the race card in an article that he wrote for the Miami Herald about Nash winning the MVP.
LeBetard is very good friends with Shaq and says that Shaq should have won it and wonders whether Nash got it because he is white.
Nash is the first white player to win the award since Bird in the 80s and is the first point guard in a long time (is AI really a point guard) to win it.
LeBetard used to be one of my favourite commentators and radio personalities and I have enjoyed him everytime that he filled in on PTI but I have lost a lot of respect for him.

Nash is completely deserving and taking away from the award (like Van Gundy's comments about the Mavs being better after the trade) gets a big
I guess the next conspiracy theory is that the award was given to Nash as a way for the league to take a shot at Mark Cuban
