Hey you get my PM?
Any interest in doing the all-time auction redraft? I might "come out of retirement" to play again but no way do I have the time to do it by myself. Plus this is my MJ with the Wiz return not baseball MJ so I want a good partner haha.
Sorry mate, I haven't been logged in for a few weeks. I think Leonard will be our MVP this year. USG cluster **** in GS/punish them for not topping last seasons regular season, LBJ will sit too many games, and the Thunder, Rockets and Pelicans won't win 50 games. I have Leonard by process of elimination.
I think Leonard, James, Curry, Paul/Blake, Durant, George, Harden, Westbrook, Davis, Giannis, maybe a Raptor, maybe a Celtic and KAT split up the award shares this year. We usually see 10-12 players splitting those vote up I see it being these 12 give or take. I think Leonard has the easiest path to the MVP.
Doubt it. Lot of the public analytic models don't love the Twolves interestingly (or not as much as their Vegas line). But even if they beat that Vegas line, most MVPs come from teams with 50+ wins- highly doubt they reach that (near lock they don't). So highly doubt he gets MVP talk. Team won't be good enough (even if he is).
What are they?
Don't forget that the Bulls won the most games in the league that year. That's not happening for the Wolves - not even close. Shaq as a 21 yr old in year 2 put up around 30/13 + 3 blks on 60% from the field for a 50+ win team and it still wasn't quite enough for him to jump into the top-3 of MVP voting (it went to players of the very top teams). Towns has basically no chance for that reason. Harden over Kawhi because the Spurs are still expected to be good, Harden will be by far the best offensive player on his team, and his numbers might be the best of his career. So while he's a bit of a long-shot over LBJ (his struggle will be actually being the best player in the league day in/day out and warranting the MVP vote due to age/malaise... but with KD/Curry taking votes from each other it could work). Griffin is intriguing if he clearly outplays CP3 this year (storyline of a "comeback" is there which helps). Think he will?
well, the Wolves won't be a top 4 team in the west, so that is a tough climb. The big advantage is that Durant/Curry are probably written off (same reason Bron was in his first Miami year). I wouldn't place any money on it personally, but that is because I am a shell shocked Wolves fan that expects KAT's kneecap to explode off his knee in the preseason, and hit Wiggins in the temple, causing brain damage. Wolves luck
He's probably going off around 50/1 right now? That's what it was when I checked last and not much has changed I don't think. It's a tough call because his talent deems that a worthy value, but if past MVP's are any indication we'd still need the Wolves to become an HCA ~50+ team in the West with him being a top-5 player in the game for his MVP campaign to get serious steam behind it. Prob another year away there. Harden at ~20/1 in D'Antoni's offense as a point/forward who could rack up something close to 27/10/6 is more intriguing to me. If the cards fall right for them they could have a chance as an HCA team (which with LBJ likely taking it easy again and Curry/KD together, seems like solid value as a bet to me). I actually see him as having a similar level of team/personal impact as Westbrook (who is the odds on favorite). So value wise Towns definitely isn't a bad bet, but I'd go with Harden over him 1st IMO.
do you think Jokic has Sabonis type potential?
no definitely not idk what happened
