Look at my post history G. then get back to me.

Kawhi has been my pick for awhile now. 60 wins with no other allstar or all NBA player and he plays lock down defense.

Quote:
John Wall is one playoff run away from being a superstar. Since coming into the league seven years ago, Wall has gotten better every season, evolving from a player who relied primarily on his absurd athleticism to a well-rounded floor general who controls the game with his mind as much as his body. He has been an All-Star the last four seasons, but has remained relatively anonymous (he doesn’t even have a signature shoe deal) because the Wizards ironically lack a national profile. They have made the playoffs only twice in his time in Washington, and his last appearance in 2015 was cut short by a broken hand. This is his first season in the NBA when he has played with anywhere near as much talent as he did in college, when he teamed up with DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe, and Patrick Patterson at Kentucky. With a supporting cast in place, and the Eastern Conference looking wide open, everything is set up for Wall to make the leap.
Quote:
What separates Wall from Westbrook is mentality: Wall can get a shot off whenever he wants, but, in the vein of more traditional point guards, he always looks to pass first.

These Playoffs Belong to John Wall
After years of being overlooked in favor of his contemporaries, the Wizards’ franchise player is in the midst of a postseason breakout. With the way the East has shaken out, Washington’s path to the conference finals is clear. Should he reach that point, there’s no telling how high his star could rise.

I think I've seen you be accused of being a #Harden4MVP supporter no less than, 20 times.

Folks really don't pay that much attention to anything anymore.

 

How many times must you tell folk you are pro-Kawhi for the award.

Oh you mean how the MLB actually rewards the season's best player and doesnt use "this team isnt supposed to be as good as they are, so we will reward their best player" logic?

Would be nice if it started getting one step closer like you claim.

Except they don't really do that in MLB either. Mike Trout would have 5 straight MVPs if they did.

You could say the exact same thing about Harden's season.  Considering efficiency his stats were actually better.

After last night performance I don't want to hear anything about Myrie and Love carried Lebron through the playoffs and just coasted

Bron put on one of the most impressive playoff performances of ALL TIME while these 2 were warming the benches

Put the whole team on his back and tied the largest comeback EVER

Plus Harden was already robbed of an MVP

Kawhi Leonard will be covering ZBo next game.

There's a reason why the Cavs are 4-19 when Lebron doesn't play (since he came back to Cleveland.)

Love/Kyrie CAN'T lead that team.

I apologized for my assumption.  I am not a daily visitor to this thread.

They were playing Indiana though so lets account for that. Get behind against Washington or Chicago even. You're going to need everybody.

... nobody said that because it was obvious to everyone that he had at least a 50% chance of winning?

 

Plenty of people said someone else should win.

No chance.

 

When Billy thinks Grant should play over Taj and Kanter is too bad on defense to play, then it puts way too much pressure on Russ down the stretch and he usually isn't going to outgun 3pt shooting teams down the stretch...he's a bad man, but not that Bad.

 

He'd have to be Bruce Lee of Harlem with the glow type good to overcome the rotation Billy gives him.

 

If you want to play Grant cool, just start him instead of Taj and let Taj do some work while Russ sits instead of sitting with Russ, especially w/Kanter not filling that role anymore.

I always thought Westbrook was most likely to win because the media narrative has been crazy hype this year.

 

Also Harden has been snubbed in major ways before (most notably All-NBA last year).

You're wrong too. Up until like 3 weeks left in the season. I was having damn near daily debates in here. I said back almost at the all star break he'd win it even as a 6 seed and multiple posters here said no chance in hell.

I see what you're saying.  It is definitely historically unprecedented for someone from a 6 seed to win, so I seem to remember those convos.  I think it's become obvious in the last couple months this year was different though.
