    Exactly. Giannis' scoring will fall back down to earch (perhaps ending around 27 ppg for the season at most. Right now the Rockets are on top of the Western Confernace after 16 games. Fees good to see this (Even if it is just a limited stay there)

    ESPN Forecast
    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/21438431/nba-predictions-espn-experts-mvp-best-rookie-finals-more

    After one month of NBA action, and with about 1,000 regular-season games to go, who is the new favorite for the MVP award? What about rookie of the year? And how likely is a fourth straight Finals rematch between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors? We polled the ESPN Forecast panel of experts for their votes on the big questions.

    Who will win the 2017-18 MVP award?
    1. James Harden HOU 36.8
    2. Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL 23.7
    3. LeBron James CLE 18.4
    4. Kevin Durant GSW 10.5
    5. Kyrie Irving BOS 10.5

    Bill Simmons Ringer column today.
    https://www.theringer.com/nba/2017/...mbiid-ben-simmons-jayson-tatum-celtics-sixers

    Every 2017 MVP Voter Who Didn’t Vote for Westbrook
    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.

    Listening to his podcast right now with house counting down the 20 best players right now. They definitely touched on the topic as they put Harden 3rd overall behind Lebron and Durant. They both said it’s probably more fair to say Harden and Durant are 2a/2b

    There should be a clause that if your team loses to a 2-14 team (like the Dallas Mavericks) then you can't win MVP that year.

    Milwaukee is at full strength and getting blown out in the 4th quarter by 22 points.

    Judging from all the other threads, not enough people know about that tracker. Deserves its own thread. :cool:

    Bumping this as Harden is now in the lead in PPG and assists and the Rockets are still on top of the West. Extra bonus is Dallas on the bottom

    This is INSANE!
    Total Points Added by Shooting Guards so far this year.

    Things to note:
    1) Beard is above the Defensive Points Saved line with the season 1/4 over.
    2) "Lockdown defender" Klay Thompson's spot in between Kyle Korver and Lou Williams.

    Lamb is on a very good spot as far as that graph is concerned.
