Is it possible for Damian Lillard to win MVP if the Blazers are the 8th seed He s now averaging over 30 PPG on over 63 TS Just godly 12:26 am Sun Feb 7 EDTDeleted

I hate this overhype cause it just makes people react negatively. Dame is a god right now, but the team is nowhere good enough for him to win MVP and Giannis is running away with it. Regardless hes making a good case for 1st team NBA and he should be to 1

Would have to be Luka, both have crazy numbers but Luka is likely only gonna play 60 games. 29-9-9 on 59% TS vs 30-4-8 on 62% TS and Dame has him significantly in advanced stats. Regardless lots can happen but hes definitely in the conversation now to t 1

Serious Can someone explain why anthony Davis is considered an undeniable top 5 player 1:55 pm Mon Feb 8 EDTDeleted

In January Damian Lillard averaged 34 5 8 on 66 TS dragged the Blazers back into playoff contention and broke a Wilt scoring record He is not Player of the Month in the West 4:26 pm Tue Feb 9 EDTDeleted

That leaves out the 8% TS gap. 34ppg on 66%TS(absurd) is massively above 25ppg on 58%TS. Also Lebron went 9-4, not 10-4. 2

Can someone tell me the incentive for teams to buy out players 6:55 pm Wed Feb 10 EDTDeleted

Typically a player getting bought out agrees to take a percentage less than owed, also if that player then gets signed by another team the amount he get signed for gets subtracted from how much the first team owes. Players are incentivized to get bought 3

Simmons brown and ingram I don’t think it’s even particularly close. Sabonis is also a bad defender but he’s a more consistent scorer, maybe even a better passer, and (obviously) a much better rebounder Look at the pacers led by sabonis. Imagine a 2

Is James Harden a better offensive player than Jordan 5:01 pm Mon Mar 8 EDTDeleted

Fuck no. If you wanna make the argument in the regular season then go for it. When it matters though? James harden had a game 7 against a Spurs team missing kawhi and out up 10 points on 18% shooting and fouled out lol. They aren’t on the same level 2
