Unfortunately, a lot of people think only one player can deserve an award that goes to one person. If the winner isn't their pick, the winner doesn't deserve it in their mind. The reality is that outside of exceptional cases, multiple players can be and are deserving in every year. It's just a lot easier to focus only on the one guy who won or the one guy who got snubbed in order to remember it as a tight narrative instead of the sloppy mess that is reality.
