    I think most figured this matchup would be pretty easy for whoever won the suns/lakers matchup and thus far thats held up.

    Yep denver is short handed, it was expected.

    Phoenix has yet to win a 7 games series against a full strenght team.

    This series is over.

    Really Random but:
    2019-2020 = Giannis MVP; 2nd round loss
    2018-2019 = Giannis MVP; ECF loss
    2017-2018 = Harden MVP; WCF loss
    2016-2017 = Westbrook MVP; 1st round loss
    2015-2016 = Curry MVP; Finals loss
    2014-2015 = Curry MVP; Champions
    2013-2014 = Durant MVP; WCF loss
    2012-2013 = LBJ MVP; Champions
    2011-2012 = LBJ MVP; Champions
    2010-2011 = Rose MVP; ECF loss
    2009-2010 = LBJ MVP; 2nd round loss
    2008-2009 = LBJ MVP; ECF loss

    So, 7 active MVP's (8 with Jokic), and only 2 ever have won the championship the year they were named MVP. Long story short....if a guy is named MVP, don't bet on them to win a championship.

    Yeah Denver is missing two starters. I donít think people realize how short handed they are. Theyíre also missing Dozier. Theyíre literally relying on guys like Rivers, and Campazzo to fill those mins.

    I know he's short but do you have to call it out like that?

    Also he's outrebounded Zinger in the playoffs.

    Best one I heard on KP is he's 5'17".

    As for this series, I do think that Jokic has got to be much more aggressive on the block with Ayton. I said the same of Embiid in the Sixers series. Phoenix doesn't have the size to match up. Get on the block, get physical, get Ayton in foul trouble. Take the smaller second unit guys in the block, make the Suns double you and get the ball moving from there. He seems too content playing on the perimeter and letting them take away his passing options while Ayton takes him one on one.

    True, but to be fair, of those MVPs that didn't win a ring, would you have bet on those guys to win it all before those postseasons started? In most cases, I'm guessing not. I'm not sure what Denver's odds were to win it all before the playoffs started, but I have to think they were pretty heavy underdogs. Without Murray, I think they did well to get this far.

    The only guy on this list on a team that probably should have won a ring that year was 15-16 Curry, who lost in a Game 7 in one of the biggest Finals upsets in NBA history. Maybe you could make a case for 17-18 Harden, but Paul's hamstring had other ideas. That being said, I do think you could make a case that these teams should be performing a little better than they did. Of the nine seasons where the MVP didn't win a ring, only one of those guys made it to the Finals at all (Curry).

    I agree especially since his passing options arenít that great right now other than MPJ. Jokic needs to be more aggressive for sure.
