    ...with "Right Side of History" on the back.

    When last spring’s “Russ is doing this without any help!” argument belatedly contracted hot-take salmonella in October as Victor Oladipo, Domantas Sabonis, Enes Kanter and even Dougie McBuckets (?!?!?!) thrived on their new NBA teams, did I secretly enjoy it?

    I mean … secretly? What about openly? I loved it! Where can I buy an “OFFICIAL HARDEN 2017 MVP VOTER” T-shirt? Would it be over the top if I added the words “THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY” on the back? Can’t someone sell these on the internet? I want to buy 10 of them—one for me, one for Zach Lowe, one for Sean “Against Russ” Fennessey, and the other seven to roll up and whip at various millennial Ringer staffers. Actually, that’s another T-shirt I want to make: MILLENNIALS LOVE BALL HOGS.

    The media is on our side! I would rather fly under the radar though!

    "Like" is not nearly a strong enough word for how I feel about this. Maybe "want engraved on my tombstone"...

    In 2017, Bill Simmons voted for Harden, Zach Lowe voted for Leonard. Sean Fennessey did not have a vote.

    Kevin O'Connor from Ringer also voted for Harden.

    I noticed that a lot of the more knowledgeable voters had Harden over Westbrook for MVP, and the Chris Broussard types preferred Russ

    Zach Lowe tried to be edgy and different going with Kawhi

    It doesn't surprise me when people don't vote for Harden that complain about how unwatchable he is.

    Just noticed only 2/22 ESPN voters went with Harden, (Calvin Watkins and Jackie MacMullin)...hmmm

    Zach "I have legit no clue who I'm voting for. Time to stop saying Kawhi belongs and maybe that he is the actual MVP. " Lowe?
    Zach "I voted for Kawhi Leonard for MVP" Lowe?

    FOH!

    Edit: I apologize @Pen15clubber.

    ESPN was the driving force behind propping up Westbrook’s narrative so I’m not even surprised

    it also sucked for Harden because a lot of people who had Harden as the MVP didn’t actually have votes, it was ridiculous

    When Rockets will win Championship this year I need a T-Shirt that says "I'm not surprised MOTHER*****"

    This is a quotation from Nate Diaz - MMA fighter after he defeated Conor McGregor.

    I'm confused. I thought Calvin Watkins hates Harden and the Rockets?

    Having the beat writer for that city vote some other top candidate else would smell extra funky.

    Who really knew and who cares?

    Yeah, this is his premeditated attempt to build up Boston's underdog narrative.

    Been there, done that BS.

    Lowe didn't vote for Harden, but he did put him above Westbrook on his ballot, so he should at least get some credit.
