    Bob, the warriors Play By Play on TV states the difference in the MVP race between hardens and Giannis is defense and Out of 0 Giannis has a 1 in front of his 0 (10) in terms of defense and harden is a 0. “ harden has a 0 there but not a 1 infront of it”

    Is he the mustache guy? Lol.

    Nobody cares about local tv analysts. In a race for which ones are the best the answer is none. In a race for which ones suck the answer is all. Rockets guys included.

    **** the warriors! I used to like them, being from the Bay Area and all but couldn’t stand their smug little fairy team ever since they won their first title when every other teams best players were injured. That’s when the bandwagon warrior fans exploded in the area.

    Titles are titles but theirs don’t mean **** to me. Classic example of a frontrunning team that can pile on when they overwhelm teams with their talent but when things get tough go to the only reliable teammate in the clutch- the refs. Wouldnt wish injury on anyone, but wouldn’t be crying If they all broke their legs. Can’t stand those guys

    how can anybody take such an ignorant statement seriously?

    harden has had his defensive shortcomings in the past... and he might still checkout occasionally on the defensive end... but to say his defensive effort this year has been a zero is just ignorant...

    aint nobody got time for that...

    That's the real question. Curry can't hold a candle to Harden as a defender.

    I’ll be laughing at him when we win it all and Harden gets not only the mvp but finals mvp

    The real issue is that that comment comes when the Warriors are losing by 41 to the Dallas Mavericks at home when they can still play for the No. 1 seed.

    Only people the local play by play announcer should be taking shots at in that situation is the Golden St. Warriors for using the excuse of Curry being out to get blown out by the Mavs.

    Watched this game on their stream and heard this as well...they sound nervous, made excuses saying really hard to go to 5 straight championship...they see the writing on the wall..Durant clearly hates it there

    This was very sad to hear. Completely unprovoked, and unprofessional. Yes, it is fair when to call out when a player is known to be a defensive liability, but this situation was not it. It definitely wasn't from the right team about the right player either. It is especially comical when the Rockets literal game plan is to attack Stephen Curry, if not one of their bigs, in isolation. A two-time MVP at that.

    When have Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Larry Bird, or Magic Johnson ever been attacked on defense? And none of them were ever unanimous MVPs either. It is such a moronic statement in so many different ways. I almost don't know where to start. I'm not confident the Rockets could beat them this season, but if we did then I already know they'd have an excuse ready to go. It's a joke.
