Kirk Gibson yesterday became the first Los Angeles Dodger in 14 years to be named the National League's Most Valuable Player. In voting by the Baseball Writers Association of America, Gibson outdistanced two New York Mets outfielders, Darryl Strawberry and Kevin McReynolds. Gibson, the Dodgers' leftfielder, drove in only 76 runs, the lowest total for an MVP since Cincinnati's Pete Rose in 1973, but finished comfortably ahead of Strawberry, the league leader in home runs. Gibson helped turn a losing team into World Series champions, inspiring the Dodgers in the clubhouse and carrying them at the plate.

"Bo . . . Just Do It," advised the sign trailing the airplane that circled Anaheim Stadium at the start of last night's All-Star Game. Since the sign wasn't very explicit, Bo Jackson couldn't have been sure precisely what it was the shoe company that paid to put that plane aloft wanted him to do. So he did it all. He displayed that blinding speed and turned on that awesome power. He did everything but score a touchdown. And he won the game's most valuable player award. At Monday's news conference, National League president Bill White got a laugh when he congratulated the leading all-star vote-getters - "Will Clark of the National League and Bo Jackson of the Oakland Raiders.

INDIANAPOLIS - Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has won the 2011 Associated Press NFL most valuable player award in a landslide. Rodgers earned 48 votes to two for New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. The Packers star is the first Green Bay player honored since Brett Favre concluded a run of three straight seasons as MVP in 1997. "It means a lot to be recognized as a consistent player and contributing on my team," Rodgers said.

Dan Cappello showed up at the 16th annual Joseph J. Barrett Sr. All-Star Game, pitched three scoreless innings, left for home, and won the most-valuable-player award. Now that was how he had intended to finish his high school baseball career. Cappello, an Upper Darby senior, struck out four and walked two Saturday at Glen Mills, helping the Central League All-Stars beat the Del-Val League All-Stars, 3-1. Cappello had missed the Royals' final seven games of the season because of mononucleosis.

Chris LaPierre's final high school game was a microcosm of his career at Shawnee, where he starred in football and lacrosse. The Inquirer's South Jersey senior athlete of the year, LaPierre earned game MVP honors last night after scoring two goals and adding a game-record four assists as his South team beat the North, 19-16, in the fourth annual Under Armour All-American Classic at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium. LaPierre's six points tied a single-game record that was matched last night by the North's Matt White, his future University of Virginia teammate.

He wasn't looking to change anyone's mind about him. Allen Iverson said he was just looking for his teammates. He found them often enough last night to record nine assists to go with 19 points as the East rookies beat the West, 96-91, at Gund Arena in the NBA's rookie all-star game. As a result, he was named the game's MVP. "I wasn't expecting anything like this," said Iverson, who has been maligned this season as the too-wild poster child for Generation X. "But I'm not hoping that now everybody will be on my side because of this award.

He had been dejected, disappointed, depressed, despising all of it. He had discovered himself seemingly trapped in the eye of a storm, loathing it. He was Isiah Lord Thomas, recognized as so tall in the vision of the basketball world, and yet he had begun to feel so small. His team, the Detroit Pistons, had lost 15 of 19 games. Their trainer, Mike Abdenour, had said during that stretch that they "could stand in the ocean and not throw the ball in the water. " What Isiah Thomas needed, more than anything, was to explode.

NEW YORK - Derek Fisher sat in his slightly darkened office at Madison Square Garden and, as usual, reviewed videotape. It was 3 hours before his Knicks welcomed the Clippers to MSG on Wednesday. The video showed the Clippers' usual array of monster dunks and fastbreak thunder, but it also revealed a maestro at work. Fisher, less than a season removed from playing in the NBA, couldn't help but be awed at the deftness with which Chris Paul orchestrated the movements of every player on the court.

NEW YORK - Russell Westbrook's latest accomplishment could be used as motivation for the 76ers, especially Tony Wroten. A year ago, Westbrook was unable to play in the NBA All-Star Game after undergoing a third surgery on his right knee. But Sunday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard had one of the best All-Star Game performances of all time. He was named MVP after finishing with 41 points off the bench to lead the West all-stars to a 163-158 victory at Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK - Sometimes at an NBA All-Star Game, you will see something you haven't before. Though the lack of defense is always a given, some things are not. That came in a few forms last night at Madison Square Garden. Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook scored a record 27 points in the first half, eclipsing the mark of 24 in one half set by Glenn Rice in 1997 and Kyrie Irving last season. Westbrook finished the game with 41 points, leading the West to a 163-158 win. The record for points in a game, 42, was set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - It seems silly, the Super Bowl measuring sticks we sometimes place on quarterbacks. Tom Brady came very close to losing in his third straight Super Bowl appearance Sunday night and the argument, by some, would have been that he didn't warrant mention as the greatest, especially in light of "Deflategate. " The Patriots of Bill Belichick and Brady faced their largest deficit ever in a Super Bowl and the Seahawks, with a 24-14 lead early in the fourth quarter, looked as if they could not be beaten.

IT WAS that seven-game stretch starting in late September that probably clinched this year's fantasy football MVP award for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The man was a mountain of consistency the first 3 months of the season. Three touchdowns and 300 yards were as predictable as Packers players leaping into the stands after scoring touchdowns. In those seven games, Rodgers threw for 23 touchdowns and two interceptions. Rodgers garnered nearly 70 percent of readers' votes to win fantasy MVP for the second time in 4 years.

This baseball season was something different for Mike Trout. The Los Angeles Angels outfielder hit for more power than in his first two seasons. He struck out more often and stole fewer bases. Trout drove in more runs. He generated more extra-base hits. He flourished in big games, leading the Angels to the best record in baseball and the American League West title. Trout, the 23-year-old Millville High School graduate, was a slightly different player in 2014. He was something else as well: the American League's most valuable player.

Before the Cardinal O'Hara girls' basketball team steps onto the floor to begin a game, Mia Farmer has a message for her teammates in the huddle. "Have fun," the senior guard says. "If you don't have fun, then what is the whole point in playing?" the George Washington-bound Farmer said. A 5-foot-9 point guard, Farmer is one of two starters who returned for the Lions (17-8) after a Catholic League championship and a run to the semifinals of the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament a year ago. There may not be another local player who means more to her team than the explosive Farmer, who coach Linus McGinty said has carried his team many times this season.

LOS ANGELES Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, who finished runner-up to Ryan Braun in voting for the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player award, thinks the suspended Milwaukee Brewers slugger should be stripped of the honor. Braun finished with 388 points and 20 first-place votes, to 332 and 10 for Kemp. Major League Baseball attempted to suspend Braun following a positive test that October for elevated testosterone, but the penalty was overturned by an arbitrator who ruled Braun's urine sample was handled improperly.
