    lol, those two guys love some AD. Even SAS admitted AD is the better player per se. By what standard? This is not 90s basketball anymore; no big man is going to have the kind of impact that the elite guards can have these days. This is just basic knowledge.

    There is a reason why AD's team constantly underperforms (and for that matter, Cousins, Towns, etc.), and that is because they can't break down and create havoc in the defensive scheme the way Curry or Harden does. The best they can do is put up great individual numbers, without elevating their teammates.

    Spot on. But did he says Anthony Davis is a better overrall player than Harden? Um no he's not. Harden's offense is so much better than anybody else's, AD's defensive become irrelevant. Harden is the best player in the world right now. Hopefully it's transfer in the playoffs too. But there is no player on earth better than Harden right now

    errr what was max kellerman saying at the end with "he is the league MVP"? Was he conceding SAS was right, or did I miss something?

    I guess Max thinks Davis deserves MVP, but Harden will win MVP. I have no idea. This show sounds so scripted. As if they're required to have opposing takes on every issue.

    Crazy how flip floppy these guys get. We just saw yesterday how SAS was trying to discredit the Rockets on how they basically won the West due to GSW injuries. NOW today he is the clear cut MVP and has risen his team's win total every year for the past 3.

    This can become maddening to a point.

    Media can never compliment Harden without putting him down. Harden plays with 0 all-stars and 3-4 past seasons he's been #1 or #2 in MVP race but they always have to qualify it that he plays with a better cast than someone else meanwhile when Curry or Durant or Lebron come up in the MVP talk, there's no mention about the great players around them, it's all about their individual qualities and stats. Harden is one of the top 5 best players in the league. Every year he reaches new heights when you think there's no more improvements he could make.

    Anthony Davis is all potential. He's a freak physically, athletically and can do great things at both ends of the court but he hasn't done it consistently. He's always injured. He's still just potential. He needs to put together a full season of carrying a team and putting up crazy numbers like Harden has. Harden is actually doing it for most of his career.

    I only like the last part, the first part is just screaming. That ceremony after the season is one of the most ridiculous, idiotic, dumbest decision the league has made since moving the 3pt line shorter in 1995.

    Anthony Davis did nothing with Eric Gordon, Ryan Anderson when they were teammates only an 8 seed and got beat by GSW. Media overrates Anthony Davis and Giannis Antetekounmpo they are good but not superstars, Both are raw in making teammates better in Assists, and 3 point shooting.

    This whole he doesn’t elevate his team stuff is just dumb. Explain how his team is underperforming this year? How much higher should they be? Harden has more of an impact than ad because he’s an elite guard that can facilitate.

    I really don’t get how half of cf has to knock a guy to big up our guy. Harden is gonna win mvp. AD has been incredible, and I damn sure didn’t expect them to survive when Boogie got hurt. Doesn’t mean bear hasn’t been better.

    There is no world where Anthony Davis is better than James Harden. The guy has barely even sniffed the playoffs in his entire career

    As James Harden would say, "WHO CARES?"
