    When you have nothing but only one shooter but still performing to the highest level and carrying your team and showing to the world that it is possible to be in the playoffs. That man is the true meaning of MVP.

    I don't care about Lebron. What I care was Steph Curry who change the way NBA plays on court. If ever GSW plays on Playoffs, I will watch it. But if they Eliminated, I will stop watching it now and I dont care who gets the championship.

    If you think of it like this, Steph makes 11/28 threes, so that’s 33 pts and 17 turn overs which at worst is 34 pts for the other team (only counting 2s to keep it simple). So his net is -1 pts. BUT in another case he hits 11/23 that’s 33pts vs 12 turnovers so that’s a worst case of 24pts (only counting 2s) but now his net is +9 points. I would love to see them keep track of every turn over after a 3 and what the opponent converted. That way we can get an idea of a shooters actual point efficiency in game

    Jokic leads the NBA in nearly all advanced stats (Player Efficieny Rating, Value Over Replacement Player, -Offensive Box +/-, Win Shares, Offensive Win Shares...) despite having only the 22nd highest Usage Percentage in the NBA. Let that sink in. As much as I love Curry, what Jokic has been doing this season has been nothing short of incredible. And this hot streak from Curry doesn't change that Jokic is the MVP.

  • Perfectspare 300
    Perfectspare 30020 dagen geleden

    If Klay were healthy and playing, I think Steph would be front runner for MVP despite how well Jokic has played. Warriors would probably be competing for the top seed. But because they’re only at .500 right now, he’s not even in the conversation. Record doesn’t always tell the whole story. Without Steph, the Warriors would have maybe 10-12 wins. He’s the only reason they are anywhere close to a playoff spot

    Biggest misconception about Steph Curry is that he’s somehow “small”. The guy is 6 foot 3. Not small by any means AT ALL. Not even in the NBA is 6’3 small. People really have to stop using that as some sort of “crutch”. He might be skinnier than most players but that doesnt make him a “small guy”. Actual small basketball players should not be looking up to this guy as if they can do what he does.
