James Yap has won two MVP awards. That already puts him in elite territory in terms of the very exclusive group of people who have won multiple times.
How would/should history look at James Yap's career against the other greats?
If Yap were to retire at the end of the season, is his body of work already better than any of these SF/SGs?
Looking at the past award winners, shooters rarely get recognized as MVPs. It is only recently that shorter players have won the MVP award with regularity.
