    lol if you think Rose getting this many votes is bad, wait till we see season end MVP results.

    Giannis is so damn overrated. I'd take Kawhi over Giannis for best player in the East any day of the week.

    Doncic lol. Westbrook is closer to Harden than Harden is to Rose. Results are fairly comical right now.

    Just to use as comparison to see how players "gained" or "lost" ground.

    Here are the 1st Returns


    Here are the 2nd Returns

    To be fair, I think Durant was originally in the starting lineup (according to the first returns) so the fact that he fell out as of the 2nd returns, is more newsworthy than Harden and Westbrook staying pat.

    Dunno why some people have a problem with Doncic being up there - he's a good player on a Dallas team that's trending positively. If the Mavs had a record like the Suns / Cavs, then you could argue against Doncic. But the Mavs are right there in the playoff hunt.

    no. Fan vote only breaks ties in the score, based upon rank of each: fan vote, nedia vote, players vote, whereby fan rank counts double. Lowest average score are starters.

    See this tally, where WB, Harden and Curry tied with a score of 2.0, and WB lost out because of lowest Fan rank.

    Each google search counts as a vote and the d-rose rape stuff is very entertaining.

    Not serious.

    ZaZa didn't actually get in. But got close. And it was enough to scare the NBA and they fixed that looming issue. They fixed it JUST IN TIME.

    Hahahaha, I had forgotten about that!

    Harden is not a popular player, that's just the reality.

    I forgot Ginobody got 2nd Place in Fan Voting last year, too.



    Here's how the scoring went. It will likely work this way with Rose, too.

    Not really. Doncic has a continent behind him. Also it's not his fault, but his race matters too unfortunately. There are votes he would get that say Giannis wouldn't get at this early stage of his career. This is not to take away from the fact that Doncic is an incredible rookie and overall excellent NBA player.
