    So you’re saying the Rockets organization knows which media members did and didn’t make a royal screwup last year?

    Dear Zach Lowe,
    The Kawhi pick was a huge copout and you knew it. This was a two horse race all along and you chose to throw your vote away. It’s okay though, we forgive you. The latest Harden snub gave rise to the year he’s having now. We wouldn’t be here without you.

    Thanks,
    Rockets fans

    Well, she hosts ESPN's NBA Countdown. It is a prominent role. The problem is she isn't professional. But that is on ESPN.

    Man looking at those results is demoralizing .

    Only 2 people from ESPN/ABC voted harden 1 . Calvin Watkins and Jackie Mcmullen.

    What a shitshow .

    I don't care if harden even wins it this year . I just want a chip .

    Looking back at that, its surprising how many first place votes Kawhi received. I know the Spurs won 61 games and Kawhi is considered a two-way player, but Kawhi missed 8 games and didn't have anywhere near the same offensive stats as Westbrook and Harden. Plus, both Harden and Westbrook were better defensive rebounders, which is the key to closing out defensive possesions.

    How could you vote Kawhi over a guy that averaged a 30pt triple-double on a 47-win team (Westbrook) or a guy that ALMOST averaged a 30pt triple-double on a 55-win team (Harden).

    Yea but in no way should a completely biased “host” deserve a vote. The nba should handle that. It’s not like she an nba analyst. That’s just crazy to me... thats like giving the pope a vote on religion of the year

    Still hilarious how so many were impressed by the triple-double (and "no help" and Harden had "too much help")

    Half these people are morons. What qualifies you to be a talking head/ "journalist" is absolutely nothing. Anyone who follows sports closely is just as qualified.
