    Wemby being in the conversation for DPOY is a joke.

    Such a bummer jokic got robbed last year. Assuming he doesn’t get robbed this year he could’ve had 4 in a row. Certainly deserves to have 4 in a row.

    Didn’t he have the highest defensive on/off differential in the league? Obviously rudy will and should win but it’s not that crazy. Victor had a 105.8 defensive rating, rudy 104.4 but rudy had a real coach/system/teammates

    ^Wemby stuffs the stat sheet with rare 10-block triple-double
    Victor Wembanyama has himself a ridiculous night for the Spurs, going off for 27 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocks to become the first rookie since 1990 with a 10-block triple-double.

    There is a DPOY, why isn't there a OPOY, (or is that just MVP :D)

    George Karl has zero credibility and his biased acknowledgement would only serve to hurt someone's case for one of the best ever.

    Thankfully Jokic is independently considered amazing and most intelligent people ignore George Karl's hot takes.

    Wemby has the best step back 3 in the league? Why do you need to "step back" when you can shoot over anybody without jumping?
