KD is my early pick for MVP. I think the Warriors are going to be a whole lot better than last year. KD's gonna have that "I just won a title, don't give a single fuck" swagger a la LeBron '13 and Steph Curry is going to be in Sky fucker mode from the beginning of the year. Bench is stronger, and chemistry is mile high.

We don't need them to shoot when Kyrieg is getting buckets or passing to Gordong for buckets

They are expert passers now, surpassing Tragic Lohnson

Not sure there are enough shots and points to go around for KD to get MVP.

He has to share with Klay and Steph.

I do think the Warriors are going to destroy everyone this year though. They are going to be better than they were last year and the Cavs got worse and none of the other teams are good enough to compete with them. Maybe the Celtics I guess could have some mismatches but I don't want that to happen and would rather see them implode in the most painful way possible.

LeBron is my pick for MVP. He's basically alone with mid-tier talent until IT comes back, I think he's going to actually try in the regular season, plus he's a generational player that I don't think voters want to see go out with a whimper.

I will admit that if Steph is going off it'll be super hard for KD to win MVP, but I just have a feeling that the Warriors are going to do something so great (win streak, reg record, KD puts up a 55/45/90 season, etc.) that it's possible they give it to the best player on the team.

Agree about the Cavs. Everyone seems to think they're a lot better (depth?) but I think they're worse, particularly against the Warriors because LeBron is always going to LeBron, but Kyrie was a certified Warriors-nightmare. Him being gone changes everything, not to mention how fucking old and mangled the new team is.

the Warriors likely winning 70 games and having Steph Curry also being amazing will likely make it very difficult for KD to win an MVP. MVPs are all about narrative, so I think with Kyrie being traded the narrative is being set up for LeBron. He's in year 15, just lost his 2nd best player, Harden, KD and Westbrook are all now sharing touches with really good secondary players. If he can play like 72-75 games (and remember the schedule is friendlier this year) and put up like 27/8/8 with is usual incredible efficiency while keeping the Cavs up there with the Celts for the top spot in the East, he will have the narrative won.

Would love to see LeBron get another MVP. His championship days may be over thanks to the Warriors.

I don't think anyone really expects them to beat Lebron.

Unless you mean if they lose to the wiz or someone else, in which case we blame Danny for not keeping supernova Kelly Olynyk.

the only way lebron will win mvp is if he wants to win mvp and if he wants to win mvp it probably means he has already ceded the championship before the season starts and I don't see that happening

lebron will do what he needs to do to be ready come playoff time because at worst the cavs will be the 2 seed in the east

Spurs are going to get at least the 2nd seed and make it back to the conference finals. Thunder are the true number 3 west team and the rockets are a bunch of regular season fools gold when the post season starts and Harden doesn't get ticky tack fouls in his favor. Gunna be a much more interesting season than last.

The Celtics can trick a good player every 20 years or so to come to Boston.

Otherwise no one in their right mind goes to Boston unless they can't get a job anywhere else.

We ain't jealous. We just hate y'all and want to see you fail in everything you attempt. Its nothing personal.

Thats just how Big Ballers do. You surely wouldn't understand.

if they tried (and failed) to trade him on his current contract, why would teams trade for him with more $$$/Years attached? This is puzzling. Maybe the Spurs realize they are stuck with him and are just content to go all in with what they have in Kawhi's prime?

Averaging a triple double would require him to occasionally pass the ball, tho...
