"Poll question: NBA MVP check..."


          

personally I think Steph's teams' record keeps him out of any serious MVP convo's despite his recent hot streak but some disagree...

I feel like with the games Embiid has missed the award is Jokic's to lose. Will he be the first MVP drafted in the 2nd round?

Giannis team's record is slightly down but he's basically putting if the same numbers he did the last 2 years when he won the award...

cases can be made for almost any of the Brooklyn big 3 but they can't stay on the court...

Poll result (6 votes)
Jokic (3 votes)Vote
Embiid (0 votes)Vote
Giannis (0 votes)Vote
Harden (0 votes)Vote
Steph(lol) (2 votes)Vote
somebody else? - post it below (1 votes)Vote

Will is Jokic.

I posted this somewhere else, but if you have a close race for most any award in sports that is voted on by people (fans 0r media), the white athlete or white ppls favorite will often win because of bias and racism.

Jokic has had a hell of a season and deserves it
- Stats check
- Fewest missed games check
- Den record check (slow start hurt him early but even though their 4th seed now he has the same amount of wins basically as our Eastern favorites)

-- AND he will get a being white boost when it comes tie to vote. If I had money to put on who will win, it goes to Jokic.

to do with it in this situation.

He legitimately deserves it because he has been the most consistent.
He has not missed any games. He has not had any load management,
and he has continued to produce while missing Murray and Barton.

Plus a center hasn’t won it in quite some time, so he will have that
going for him.

He hands down the MVP.

Thats not what Im saying. I wrote that he deserves it this year.
But in all these cases. lets assume Embiid was not injured --it'd be a much closer race and if I had money to place on the race, Id almost always take the white guy in a close race where I have to correctly guess the winner whether he deserves it or not.

Like, it'd take someone like Giannis going on an undefeated streak to end the season while dropping 30-10-8. Or Steph going on an undefeated streak to end the season while dropping 45 PPG.

Or, if we wanted the ultimate Make Em Mad situation, if Denver goes on a losing streak, Dallas goes undefeated to end the season and gets a Top 4 seed? Then Luka could get it and the whole fucking internet would absolutely explode.

But literally all of those situations are insanely unlikely. It's Jokic. 98% confidence.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

The other candidates all have something working against them.

Steph is playing out of his mind, but that team’s record sinks his chances. It ain’t like baseball where you can win MVP even if you’re on a shitty team.

Embiid was closest, but injuries have come back and the Sixers aren’t looking as strong as they were a few weeks ago.

Giannis was already at a disadvantage. He won 2 in a row so there’s a feeling of “we’ve sent it all before” with him, whether that’s fair or not.

Harden has been amazing but he’s missed games and was traded onto a team that had a good shot at making the finals without him. Given a full season he would have a strong case, but it’s tough to care about this dude’s regular season stats at this point. Maybe that’s unfair, but that has to be in the back of voters’ minds.

He won't. But it would be amazing if he did.
