    Giannis is not the mvp. He can’t shoot and he’s team would still be good without him and he’s had zero mvp moments. James harden is single handedly carry the rockets and putting up offensive numbers not seen since Kobe, MJ and Wilt.

    People slandered Ben Simmons for ROTY because he was "in the building training with pros" but these same people are consensus Luka Doncic supporters... when he was PLAYING professional basketball for years before getting drafted.

    guys ibaka is obviously the best center in the league bc the raptors have the best record in the east. Thats what the jokic argument sounds like, dudes a top 5 center in the league right now, but over ad? nah hes great all around on offense but his defense is so lacking.

    Re: the point about the Raptors' record without Kawhi, let's keep in mind that we do have a small sample size of 1 game of head to head, how would the Raptors and Bucks fare against each other if no Kawhi and no Giannis? It was in Milwaukee, and the Bucks won pretty easily.

    The Greek Freak versus the Beard for the MVP. This is gonna be nasty. Can’t wait to see these two explode alot more. Don’t you all forget that Curry, Kawhi, Davis and James are still gunning in for it. But to see Jokic and PG13 going to the MVP conversation especially the former is astounding. Jokic may not be on par with Davis right now, but Jokic’s already got the recipe to start and contest that debate if he keeps this spice up well to the second half of the season.
    Nothing to say about the ROTY conversation, Doncic got it all. Probably gonna get his all-star which is likely, but consider the fact that the other fifty percent of the votes are from players and the media. Don’t forget the other rooks having a good start for their inaugural season like Trae.
    DPOY is gonna be a tough one too, especially how Jokic, Davis and PG13 rose their defensive stats on the board. You should see highlights and plays they make anytime they go into defense, I would point out one of the channels like Heat Check for that one. PG13 was just everywhere man, shutting down his matchups by leaning towards to physical defense, while Jokic and Davis share similar defensive plays on contesting the perimeter, especially in the paint. Honorable mentions to this one are probably half of the Pacers right now though, with Turner and Oladipo singing along.

    The fact no one picked Harden for MVP or even mention him is disgusting. The man averaged 40+ ppg in his last 10 games. The dude carried his team from a shitty start to a playoff ready team despite an injured Chris Paul and Eric Gordon and now Capela. Haters gonna hate on his free throws but remove his free throws he easily still averages 30+ points throughout these last few games. This guy is an outstanding and phenomenal offensive player, best in the league at offense. He’s got the three, the handles, the passing iq and the driving abilities to draw fouls.

    It's my first session actually watching basketball games my comment might be coming from a lack of knowledge but dosent the MVP mean the most valuable player to there respected team? It should be awarded to the player who is the most valuable not the best player in team that has done better than expected this season.
    I'd love to hear what other people think

    Anthony Davis
    2nd team:
    Damian Lilliard
    Kyrie Irving
    Paul George
    Lebron James
    Nikola Jokic
    3rd team:
    Russell Westbrook
    Kemba Walker
    Kevin Durant
    Blake Griffin
    Joel Embiid
    You could maybe switch around Durant / Lebron but PG has played better than both guys so far, so I got him locked in the 2nd team

    We tend to forgot how great LBJ is and I am not saying this because some may think I am a Lakers fan. Remember last year when LBJ drop 29/9/9 with all 82 games and was the sure MVP because he had played all 82 games. Harden came got a 60 point triple double and we forgot that the guy missed 14 games and yeah rested 4 of those games. Harden can't beat MVP just because he is doing good offensively because if that's the case you might as well name it MOP. My MVP vote has to go to the Joker he his shooting efficient enough, great passing big man in the league, can defend the 2-5 position and his team is the best in the West. Not to mention that he is the only star on that team.

    My personal picks for DPOY MVP and ROY.
    DPOY Anthony Davis, dude is a straight beast on both ends especially defensively he's lead the league in blocks for 3 years made all defensive team 3 times and is currently second in the league in blocks, Miles Turner will probably be in contention though.
    MVP Kawhi Leonard, this guy has proved he is more than a system player has integrated himself rather quickly into a completely new team, with a new coach in a new city on top of coming off an injury where he only played a handful of games. Kawhi has yet to have a "bad" game, shows his greatness on both ends and can actually make clutch shots consistently for his team. In my opinion, he is a top 3 caliber player overall. Will probably go to Giannis due to his popularity and how more respected the Bucks are over the Raptors.
    ROY Luka Doncic. There is no competition dude is gonna be an All-Star in his first year, it's been a while since that happened. People said Ben Simmons was that generational player but I disagree, I think Luka is that player. The guy can shoot outside the arc, is a great passer and Is already the MVP on his team.
