Default If the Clippers are top 3 in the West

How realistic is this:

CP3: MVP
DJ: MIP
Crawford: Sixth Man of the Year

?

They probably will be top 3 in the West.


I'm having a hard time seeing another than Crawford winning 6MOTY.


Jordan is possible as MIP, as is Chris Paul. I think I picked Paul as my preseason MVP. So we'll see. Kobe has been terrific tho.

Exactly why I posted this, as crazy as it seems. I mean, DJ seems to be making the leap, Crawford pretty much has Sixth Man on lock, and if CP3 can transform the Clippers this much, how the fvck does he not get MVP?

Very realistic IF as you said Clippers are a top 3 seed and look like a legit title contender.

the only real possibility is 6th man award for Crawford.. and hes likely to deserve it, if his play remains consistent.

CP3 has too much competition and DeAndre will likely not improve longevity-wise enough to win it.. likely due to being overshadowed by a players' whos play improved glaringly in comparison.

DJ and Crawford would probably win it regardless if they can keep it up.
I'm not so sure about CP3 though

CP3: MVP Clips will have to finish #1 or #2
DJ: MIP (maybe)
Crawford: Sixth Man of the Year (heavy favorite)

The last to win an MVP on a #3 seed team was 1987-88 Michael Jordan.

Oh wow I didn't know that. Then yea maybe Clippers need 1-2 seed. If they get number 1 he's a lock for MVP and if they get 2.... he has a good chance.

Chris Paul would have to really turn it up to get that MVP.

Although, so far this season Lebron looks to be really coasting so it's not so crazy that it can't happen

I don't think CP3 has the gas to ramp his numbers up to the 20/10 that he needs for MVP. If he put up the 22/11 he did a few years ago and they were top 3 in the West then sure, but I think he doesn't have it in the tank. He only rises to that level late in games it seems these days.

He put up 20/9/3/2.5 last year.... Nash won MVP with what 16 and 12 and no D? So far this year CP3 is putting up 19/11/4/2 on only 13 shots a game.

Don't forget Griffin is playing like the defensive player of the year..or a 1st teamer at least.

Jamal is in the lead for 6th man of the year, but only 1.9 boards/1.1 assists isn't going to help him continue since I don't expect him to average 20+ ppg on good %s.

Jordan needs to make a jump on his rebounds. Only 4 more points with less rebounds isn't going to help his cause.

Paul has too much competition.

If Clips finish top 3, Craw for 6th man and Sacks for Executive of the Year are the most likely, maybe (hopefully not) Vinny for CoY.
