I've gotten to the point I can usually tell when he's going to take a 3 about 5 seconds before he takes it. Only Kobe was more obvious.

Lebron has been in MVP race for all of his career, but Lukas impact is bigger

Joe Harris is the definition of solid. What a valuable role player to have on your team. Unlike almost every other elite white shooter in the league he can defend too. Not elite but he has defensive skills. Great finisher and cutter, doesnt only settle for 3s. Sneaky midrange

Someone finally figured out why Luka is looking like the 2nd coming of Kirilenko on defense in the last few games.

Meh. Only 10 games in that 50 point blowout is exaggerating things. Dallas is finding their legs finally but we need to remember that data is skewed atm.

The mvp rn is Lebron..

He is playing like 32 min a game and they are destroying teams rn

Luka can put up all these crazy numbers, but still needs to be a top 2 seed

Lebron may win it off reputation and being robbed last year

I can’t see any team beating this Lakers squad tbh. The chemistry they play with on both ends is honestly crazy.

Unfortunately he will be underutilized on the nets. He’s got elite role player potential

I think Austin rivers could be a solid pickup for a few contending teams if Knicks try and get some value

Circumstances matter. Luka started the season without KP. Now the Mavs are missing 3 starters due to COVID protocols. If the Mavs manage to stay in the top 3-4 it could be enough for the MVP award.
LeBron is the best player in the world until proven otherwise in the playoffs but we all know that the MVP award is not always given to the best player.
