Predictions time

MVP: LeBron James (LAL) - If he doesn't load manage that is; Giannis wins it again if that's the case. LAL will, for sure, be top once again in the West.

DPOY: Joel Embiid (PHI) - I think the Sixers could have the best defense this year. Embiid is gonna be motivated not making the All-NBA teams and having a retooled roster now. Although, Simmons also has a chance since he finished 4th last year so they might cancel each other out for this award.

ROTY: Anthony Edwards (MIN) - LaMelo or Wiseman might be considered the favorite here because they'll probably get more touches but I think Edwards has more potential than either of them and he's gonna have more space to operate in Minny even with D'Lo & KAT getting the most touches.

6MOTY: Lou Williams (LAC) - He's what James Harden is to the MVP although Lou Will has won it multiple times. I would've said Schroder but he might start for LAL this season. Lou Will will always be a sixth man.

MIP: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (OKC) - He'll get a whole lot of touches in OKC now that CP3 & Schroder are gone. Honorable mentions go to MPJ and Lonzo.

COTY: Doc Rivers (PHI) - Obviously, not a big fan but I feel like Philly will be better this year and they just came off from Brett Brown.

I think you forgot about Westbrook on the East All star team, if healthy he’s guaranteed to lock up a spot in the East.


I gotta also say it really looks like Way Off P is capping :gokulaugh:

You're right. I was thinking of another forward but he may go on the team over Brown.


Yeah. Even if that was the truth, its not like he was doing that good either in the last of couple of years. :lawsigh:

KD>LeBron since 2014
KD deserves 2 MVPs at least

LeBron Is overrated by Media. The dude has gotten so much help and yet still loses 6x.

He's for sure top 5 all time but he's not better than current KD.

KD was injured in 2015
Didn’t deserve over curry in 2016
Westbrook or Harden in 2017
Harden was easily better in 2018
Giannis was better in 2019

If he wanted MVPs he shouldn’t of joined the best team of all time. Dude didn’t win shit without them but Lebron is overrated for losing in finals with Kyle Korver as his second best player?

Also “current” KD is a guy we haven’t seen play since he tore his Achilles and he’s better than the guy who just coasted to a championship? No

yeah I'm not the biggest fan of LeBron but he's been imo the best player (especially in scoring) the past 10 years, even with 3 finals losses against the Warriors. His team may have not been best equipped to beat the Warriors all the time (not counting 2016) but he's always been playing relatively well and the one guy teams fail to truly stop

2012 MVp should have been KD

LeBron never won without all stars either
KD beat LeBron fair and square in 2017
2018 was just sad coz LeBron himself decided to tarded for players and got trashed.

In 2012 KD had 1 more point than LBJ but 3 less assists. Lebron also shot an absurd 53% from the field. KD was a close second but Lebron was sick that year.

I disagree that it was fair. KD joined a championship quality team. It is the weakest move in sports history and should be accounted for when comparing players.
 
Imma be honest. Either Randle and Payton's agent gave Leon Rose the bribe of the century, or that there's no one in the NBA that wants them. They do not belong on this team whatsoever and just hurts the development of our younger players.
Yall should try and trade Randle for something. Obi Toppin is a starting caliber player already and he can space the floor and the Knicks need that shooting around Barret.

apparently no one wants him rn (aka he has 0 trade value according to the other 29 teams), at this point my sanity in the next week or 2 lies on whether Leon Rose can trick another GM into taking/eating Randle's contract
