              Who would have thought:
              -PG might win the MVP
              -Bucks having a better record than GSW
              -Harden averaging more points than Prime Kobe
              -Brooklyn making the playoffs
              -Lakers might barely make the playoffs

              Lesson of the day: If someone makes a statement that looks dumb at first, DO NOT MAKE FUN OF THEM

                    “He’s attempting 8.8 threes per game”

                      Nice vid supporting PG but saying the 3 isn't an intricate part of his game is false. Only players to make more 3s than him this season are Curry and Harden.

                              Thunder might go all the way. They have one of the best defenses in the league with Westbrook, PG, Adams, Grant, Noel. And pretty good offense: PG superstar scorer, Westbrook star scorer, admas food scorer, grant, schroder. Greta team man

                                  Hes so slow compared to other elite SFs is the only issue. Hes got the best handle of any player over 6'5, top 10 handle in the league but his speed is something lacking severely.
                                  Top 10 handles in the league (before some1 start some shit)
                                  1. Kyrie
                                  2. Curry
                                  3. Kemba
                                  4. Crawford
                                  5. Harden
                                  6. Lillard

                                    Currys handles great but overrated. Players like Kemba have way faster crosses, which is the most important aspect for handles

                                        Yo guys remember when he was that good 3 years ago. I am not surprised mothafuckas. His ability to pass by defenders was hurt cause of the injury. Honestly i think if this injury never happened he would be top 3 player in the nba.

                                              MVP is often won in last 25 games of the season whin memories on voting day that are still fresh. This one will go to the wire with Harden and Giannis.

You gotta be fcking smoking crack if you Think PG is an MVP candidate. You cant call someone a MVP when a better player on his team (Russ) is clearly holding his potential back to let the team as a whole be better..... simple..... how tf does that make PG an MVP candidate bruh stfu 😭

I prefer my first best player on my team to be able to dribble, pass, shoot. Oh yeah and, euro step, step back and shoot off the dribble, catch and shoot, run pick and roll, lead a team, be clutch, score from anywhere, get to the free throw line, get efficient mid-range shots, be efficient from 3 and be one of the best on time on target passers. WHO is this JAMES HARDEN. This guy is literally the most skilled person in the league hands down.

                                                                                • Nicholas Bauer

                                                                                  Is it possible for Coach to complement Westbrook? Of course Russ has a higher usage since he's the PG. George is averaging more shots than Russ because Russ is accommodating PG more than he did last year. I still respect you though coach.
