I think Kawhi Leonard MVP but I'm fan James Harden
2019-06-25 05:56
kawhi wasnt that good all season long he just played very well at the playoffs.

Playoffs matter for probably 75% of the run as far as the MVP award goes anyway.

not true at all. It's the Regular Season MVP. Kawhii's got his Finals' MVP awards for his contribution there.
2019-06-25 08:30
ok wtf you have no idea how that works right? #17 got it
2019-06-25 08:34
literally 0/8

lmao playoffs literally matter 0%.
2019-06-25 09:48
Sorry, what now?
2019-06-25 09:59
playoffs dont count to the mvp race
2019-06-25 10:26
sure that is clear - but Kawhi wasn't that bad in regular season either i think
2019-06-25 11:29
he wasnt bad but nowhere near mvp...
2019-06-25 11:35
but not mvp worth ^^
2019-06-25 12:26
it’s for reg season only

I cheer for Raptors, but Kawhi wasn't that impressive during season and he didn't played B2B. Problem is that retarded NBA give awards once playoffs are over. 100% deserved for Giannis
2019-06-25 09:58
Only your statement about Points , prove that you don’t have idea about basketball.
2019-06-25 07:32
Bucks has Khris Lopez and Bledlose to help Giannis. Rockets had only maybe cp3(the rest are very inconsistent) to help Harden
2019-06-25 07:36
You understand that cp3 is better from both right ? Also you understand that Giannis helps everywhere .... Harden defense????? IYes Leonard could win the MVP award IF he had a bit consistency, but Harden surely not
2019-06-25 07:42
Harden had the second most steals this season, don’t assume because you just watch youtube clips of him in shaqtin a fool
2019-06-25 07:46
Obviously you are a harden fun boy , it’s ok , can’t everyone know the basics of basketball.
2019-06-25 08:02
Flag checks out, don’t try and call me a harden fan boy greek boy. You just like Giannis as mvp because you’re greek which is fine just don’t act like a pretentious basketball know it all
2019-06-25 08:34
1. Compare their stats 2. Compare their teams 3. Compare their potential And after you will understand simple things
2019-06-25 09:18
Yes. Because steals equal defense... and you simply say: Harden has a better stat here and here, so i ignore the rest. And then you tell the other guy he is biased...sure.
2019-06-25 09:23
Just look at his stats compared to Giannis. Giannis has better defence but Harden is a better scorer and playmaker. Harden is also more clutch and you call me biased but you’re also too, being very defensive of European players and not giving a shred of credit to NA players
2019-06-25 09:32
No. Harden takes more shots and is way less efficient than Giannis with them. That's why I see his point total with a bit of an asterix beside them. He plays average defense (not horrible, but not good in any sense) - he gambles for steals but has middle of the pack stats for defense overall (e.g. opponent shooting pct, etc). Harden scores. Great. That's all he does. ANd you mistake me arguing against your bias for being biased against NA apparently. Not right, I am simply arguing that harden is NOT MVP worthy this season. I'd even make an argument that Khawi deserves it most this season. So much for the NA bias. BUt definitively not Harden because he has the most PPG.
2019-06-25 09:44
+rep. True understanding of the game.

Imagine talking about bucks and not even mentioning Middleton lmao. ( just see it now that u mentioned him but with his 1st name, my bad) Bro harden is a God on offense but overall he's just a regular player cuz he's not there for the team, just look at KD, Giannis, kawhi. My man Lou Williams would deserve more the mvp than harden
2019-06-25 08:27
he carried to rockets to the 4th standings(2nd if they won the last few games)??

Rigged as fuck, they’re just feeding into social media who thinks giannis is the mvp
2019-06-25 07:34
mad NA that an european won mvp and roty admit they are just better
2019-06-25 07:58
No why would I be salty when there’s so few european mvps compared to na mvps LUL
2019-06-25 08:36
because there werent that many but now the best players are from europe
2019-06-25 08:38
You probably don’t even watch basketball, giannis only eu player in top 30 but to be fair he’s top 5 caliber
2019-06-25 08:44
Ever heard of Jokic, Gobert, Vucevic ?
2019-06-25 08:47
Jokic fine, Gobert likely barely, vuvenic no or at least not yet
2019-06-25 09:18
Gobert Likely ? This dude is a monster, back-to-back DPOY award. Vucevic is a beast too. Orlando would be trash without him. He is averaging 20.8 pts, 12 rbds and 3.8 assists in 80 games.
2019-06-25 09:25
Aaron Gordon and Vuvenic
2019-06-25 09:30
Gordon has logged 16 pts, 7.4 rbds and 3.7 assists in 78 games. That's great for sure. But still not as great as Vucevic.
2019-06-25 09:33
Defensive Player of the year does not make your top 30? Says a lot about your "You probably don’t even watch basketball" statement
2019-06-25 09:26
There’s a lot of star players in every team while his defence is good, its not helping the Jazz a lot. Sure one of the best defensive players but a lot of star scoring players can also play defence. The main star of every team is at least better than Gobert
2019-06-25 09:30
aren't you the same guy who said harden should be mvp because he scores a lot of points? Not really showing much consistency as long as it doesn't suit your arguments...
2019-06-25 09:32
Yes and those points ACTUALLY contribute to a win. You’re just making some vague and pretentious argument. He is the main star of Rockets and he knows how to have a fast offensive pace that rockets even lead in offensive rating before. I can’t believe I’m being baited by a European debating about an NA sport
2019-06-25 09:36
Remember that LBJ Block on Iguodala in G7 of 2016's NBA Finals ? And the great from Jordan on Miller ? Defense is a great part of the NBA. Just look at the old pistons. Or at the Spurs. A DPOY definitely makes you top30
2019-06-25 09:42
That saved 2 points from being golden state warriors’. Its just iconic because it of the situation of being in the finals. Normal defence like how golden state warriors play is good enough. If a team knows how to trap an opponent’s stat player and makes it hard for them to shoot, thats good defence. Its a team game after all and blocks are just the cherry on top
2019-06-25 09:45
Then defence makes you win games. And DPOY makes you top30.
2019-06-25 09:54
Are you now saying that defense does not contribute to a win??? Dafuq? EDIT: also it seems the european here knows more about this NA sport than you... defense does not actually contribute to a win...give me a break...
2019-06-25 09:48
Hahaha same buddy. NBA basketball you know. It's all about that 1v1 moment. We had a few american "Coaches" they were ncaa players that came to our city to organize basketball camps for kids. At the end of the week was a showmatch : Our team against them. They got completely wrecked. They were great individually, but bad af as a team, typical USA basketball.
2019-06-25 09:53
jokic #4 nba vote gobert dopy doncic roty and is a top 30 player too.

2019-06-25 09:25
no jokic no gobert no doncic no capela no giannis typical peanutbrain
2019-06-25 09:28
I listed NA players because you listed European players you half-witted dumbfuck
2019-06-25 09:33
yeah but those players are even top 20 players which i listed with 2 of them in top 4
2019-06-25 09:34
Still proves more NA players are better than EU players and obviously I’m missing some more NA players but whatever
2019-06-25 09:37
would be sad if there are more EU players than NA in the N(A)BA?
2019-06-25 09:38
But you said the best players came from Europe but majority of the best players are NA
2019-06-25 09:40
the best player is from EU and #4 from EU too so :)
2019-06-25 10:24

Best player is KD. Winning MVP doesn’t make him the best player on this planet, deluded eu
2019-06-25 10:41
i know and yes kd is the best player but not the most valuable one

2019-06-25 12:30
That guy Doncic is lit. I never stopped telling ppl around me he'd be a beast in the NBA but most of them trusted more "experts" like Charles Barkley rofl
2019-06-25 08:44
such a baller, cold blooded in his rookie season and already one of the most clutch players ever.
2019-06-25 09:00
He gained a lot of maturity in his playstyle in Europe. Euroleague and Euroleague MVP are not things that are won by accident. A lot of people never took the time to watch one of his games before he joined the NBA. More highlights are coming from the Mavs next year :D I hope they'll be able to reach the first/second round of the playoffs next year with Krizstaps.
2019-06-25 09:07
yeah he is playing euroleague since he is 16 and i hope so too.
2019-06-25 09:15
At a different skill level (definitely not Euroleague MVP), I think our french guy Sekou Doumbouya drafted 15th by the Pistons will do great in the next few years also. He's pro since he's 15 and has played in 2 great french teams already (both known to be a great place for young players to develop).
2019-06-25 09:19
ok i watched the draft till 14. haha i ll watch him.
2019-06-25 09:21
Barely but he might become a Dirk Nowitzki or better winning MVP too but now not really. Mavs are far from playoffs contention this year but maybe this year he will carry them to the playoffs
2019-06-25 09:27
maybe they get someone in fa
2019-06-25 09:29
mvp doesnt mean the best scoring player...look at for example awesome defense of harden lul
2019-06-25 07:45
Actually this is why Nash won his 2 MVP awards. It was not about scoring at all.
2019-06-25 10:00
but still people dont get it. they just see points and thats it. this mvp was without a doubt well deserved
2019-06-25 10:27
100% agreed.
2019-06-25 10:28
giannis led the bucks to #1 while harden made 200+ points without getting an assist such a ballhog doesnt deserve a mvp title.
2019-06-25 07:53
Ballhog. Worst FG% than Giannis. No defense. 12 Travels per game.
2019-06-25 08:53
i said if rockets win the title i wont watch nba anymore i really hate that team.
2019-06-25 08:57
2019-06-25 09:01
and 30 ft per game
2019-06-25 09:02
Haha yeah forgot about this but 100% true !

giannis was the only real star on the best team in the league, had impressive numbers in every major statistical category. harden put up ridiculous point totals, but finished 4th in his conference with a better team around him. /close
