This is what I hate about reducing nba awards to a stupid award ceremony. They have Ďnomineesí now. It was better when there werenít nominees and you could still Stan for dudes like jokic as a legitimate dark horse.

I mean you could sorta make a case for pg over jokic. I’m sure many fans can. But by taking jokic out of the nomination you effectively end that fun debate. Silly nonsense.

And most predictions had the Clippers having a really nice lottery pick. They won 48 games instead. You really can't go wrong with either.

MIP is siakam. He came out of nowhere. Fox improved but he has much more room for improvement. D’lo really didn’t get much better. He just lucked into an all star roster in a weak conference for guards.

PG13 was having a huge year before he got hurt. It is easy to forget now but he averaged 35/8 in feb.

When he came back his shoulder was still hurting and he was clearly struggling with it.

Giannis CLEARLY THE MVP

Trigga / Donshit share it ROY (hypes the "rivalry")

Siakam MIP

Lou Wil 6Man

Gobert DPOY

I'm obviously biased, and I expected it, but I just can't understand how George is above Jokic in the MVP conversation. OKC was supposed to be way better than they were. They finished as the 6th seed. They were the 3rd seed last year, so they regressed. Nuggets weren't even a consensus lock as a playoff team, were as injured as anybody missing at one point 3 starters, yet they finished 2nd overall. Jokic led the Nuggets in PPG, APG, RPG, SPG with no other All-Stars on the roster.

Not sure what more Jokic could have done. Giannis/Harden were no brainers over him, but his season was the definition of MVP caliber. Take a team nobody saw coming and have them finish top 2, lead them in most major stats, have no other All-Star help, and do something unique. What he did as a C in terms of passing hasn't been seen since Wilt.

Despite all that it's not even like George's stats are straight up better. 28/8/4 on .583% TS vs 20/11/8 on .589% TS. Most of the advanced stats lean Jokic's way.

Just seems like the more popular name.

I already know who's going to win, a google doc was created counting leaked ballots. Giannis should have won both MVP and DPOY but it is what it is i guess

I saw a document that showed who the voters picked for MVP and Giannis had the most points. Oh well, good for him. He had a great season.

Still impressive how Harden is going to finish top 2 in MVP voting 4 times out of the last 5 years.
