Luka Doncic owned the Rockets again. I keep thinking teams will start adjusting and slowing him down, but he is just crushing it every game. Temporarily above Harden for MVP rankings imo.

He is insanely good. Not going to be fun having to deal with him for the next 15 years.

So how would you guys rank our previous young core in terms of their impact on their current teams?

Brandon Ingram
Thomas Bryant
Larry Nance Jr.
D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson
Josh Hart
.
.
.
Ivica Zubac, Julius Randle, Lonzo Ball

Eye ball test for me. Of course analytics would better support this so I'm calling on the experts.

The clippers are really good

Both George and Kawhi play like **** and they get an easy win

Lou has been their creator and Their PF is playing phenomenal

Why is this even up for debate? They were the preseason favourites for the title for a good reason.

It's crazy how long negative or positive narratives last in the NBA.

It always annoys me when on a list, someone will put in a tie like 2a/2b, then continue the list with number 3 instead of jumping to 4.

In 13 games Brandon Ingram has already made more three's than all of last year. He's also 20 attempts from passing his attempt total.

The King has won a title three different years against the better team so I have faith he could do it again for the fourth time

Since when were the Spurs better than not 4 not 5 not 6 not 7?
Hell they were better than the Mavs but choked that away

Okc, Spurs, and warriors were the favorites

SPURS Had them in 6, but they choked
OKC has Westbrook KD, harden
Warriors, David vs Goliath for the history books

And yes The King has lost one while being the favorite but he’s won 3 while being the underdog

I am happy we don’t have any of them anymore. I prefer to win.
