So people disagree heavily with the DPOY, the MIP is going to a #2 overall pick and the 6th man of the year played the most minutes for his team (again).
Who cares where a player was drafted, why do people have an issue with young players winning it? 'It is expected they improve massively'So people disagree heavily with the DPOY, the MIP is going to a #2 overall pick and the 6th man of the year played the most minutes for his team (again).
See i don't get this take, it is no where in the award suggested it needs to be reserved for bad players, or average players or players that are never expected to reach any great heights. Who simply improved the most.MIP should have an element of surprise to it imo. I dont think many are surprised Ja is this good, maybe that its so soon, but he was always favourably compared to Westbrook .
Thats why I picked Bane ahead of Poole. Poole was playing well last year and was probably the odds favourite to win it in preseason. Bane I personally hadn't even heard of and he is now the 3rd best player on a champ contender.
