  • Best offense, best defense lol. What happened to them in the playoffs?? Losing 4-1 to Heat and I remember that the 1 time they won against Heat in the playoffs was when Giannis got injured during the match and had to leave😄 that's funny

  • Giannis was so dominant on both offense and defense that he himself blocked his own shot.

  • These awards are very watered down. To me it doesn't matter how many positions you can guard it's more important who is at those positions that you guarded.

  • When Kenny said that Kobe did score 81 in a game: Chuck was like um, um, oh yeah I forgot about that but yeah I think Harden can go get 81 in a game lol

  • Meanwhile, GA and James Harden were defeated in 2nd rd of this postseason. GA is this season's DPOY and MVP but knocked down by the Miami Heat 4-1. LBJ, AD and the Lakers abolished the Rockets at the same time in their 2nd rd match-up. Remove all these three great players from their respective team, they won't win with certainty. So, technically LBJ is the most valuable player to his team because he keeps his team winning and advancing to next rd and possibly to the finals. So, why postseason individual's performance isn't taking into account in recognizing the league MVP? Understand that's the regular season MVP. But then we have the Finals MVP dedicated for the two teams playing in the finals. But what is the weight then of the postseason from rd 1 to conference finals of the playoffs? This is now the scenario that the winner of DPOY and MVP awarded to the same player did not play superb (excluding his injury) on this postseason and hadn't helped much his team. Another aspect is why media and sportswriters have the more say on picking the league MVP? They're not even inside the court playing against these candidates. At the end of the day, championship ring is what matters most. Because other awards are somehow subjective-based review and the only thing a team can control is to win the ring. Great example, the media hasn't given much respect to Denver this postseason especially against Clippers.

  • How come we never talk about how KD is the closest we've ever seen to a flawless player?

    HHMonth ago
    • @Shuggy he can defend at a high level. It's just that when you have an offensive machine like him, you'd be wasting that by playing him a lot on defense. And with his ball handling, he can open teammates up for plays. Not to mention, he had 6 assists per game in the last season he played. So I disagree on both points. Also, LeBron has more "flaws" than KD

      HHMonth ago
    • Defense and playmaking not exist? Offensively yes. But there's something that separates the Lebrons and MJ's all time from KD.

      ShuggyShuggyMonth ago
  • Honestly the only MVP award that matters is Finals MVP because that means you also won the championship that year

  • Obviously James Harden didn't watch the last dance. Scoring scoring 35 points a game and having the ball in your hands 90 percent of the time will not win you championships. Michael had to learn that and when he did it won him 6 championships.

  • Giannis not the real MVP and surely not a real DPOY. He seems to be real great at choking when it matters most nonetheless. Maybe they should give him an award for that.

  • Lebron didnt resurrect abything in Los Angeles you idiot Draymond! Lebron showed last year just like in his days in Cleveland the first time he was there that he couldnt even get a team to the playoffs at all unless he had a better superstar to ride the coat tails of....he needed Dwayne Wade a superstar who already had a ring to teach him how to win because he couldnt. He needed Kyrie Irving destroying your team Draymond in the final 2 games of that series while Lebron couldnt make a free throw or hit anything in the 4th quarters of those games.....he needed Anthony Davis this year to get back in the playoffs because he couldnt get the Lakers in the playoffs without help.....Lebron is the only so called great who has spent his entire career constantly needing more help........sure all the greats needed another great player to help them win a title....Oscar Robertson needed Kareem, Jordan couldnt get the Bulls the title until Pippen developed into a star and Horace Grant developed into one of the best power forwards in the league in those days. Magic couldnt win a title without Kareem when young and without James Worthy, Chamberlain couldnt win a Title without Jerry West, Bill Russell and all his rings came with a roster loaded with hall of famers besides him. However while it is true all the all time greats needed another superstar to win a title....Lebron is the only one who is called an all time great who couldnt get his team to the playoffs ever unless he had another all star playing beside him. Why, because he has never cared about anything but stats padding his stats...and looking good himself even if he had th=o throw his team under the bus to do so. It was always Kyrie Irvin making the clutch shots against your team Draymond. It was always Dwayne Wade making the cluth shots. Not all season mind you but when it mattered most in the playoffs...and what does Lebron do when he gets Anthony Davis...instantly he rides him needs Davis to carry him and why because Davis does things Lebron has never done in his career...Davis plays defense...Davis boxes out and fights for rebounds....Davis is a team player...Lebron is only out for Lebron...sure you say he led league in assists....why...because the only way he can be labeled a team player is to do something like that now that he has lost a step. Lebron has never beel all NBA defense ever not even close not even in his prime.....no way he is the greatest ever...and people like Steven Smith have spent most of 2 deacdes blaming everyone as they do Anthony Davis now when the Lakers loose a game...and praise Lebron...even when Davis by far out plays Lebron and is the better player right now........Lebron is what he has been since high school when I watched him right here in ohio...no defense and all about looking good and could care less about his team or anyone but himself...and always blames someone else when he looses

    • Stetson I have never read such incoherent delusional nonsense in my life. You win the dumbest human on the internet award 🥇. He was 6th in defense this year and he has been 2nd DPOY many times in his career.
