    Was gonna say this.

    He deserves a lot more attention than he’s been getting. He’s basically taken a backseat to the ten straight triple doubles from Russ

    I guess cus I follow crazy amounts of NBA people on twitter but all I’ve been seeing is PG lately.

    Honestly feel like Giannis hasn’t gotten enough talk nationally

    He’s also shooting 37% from 3 over the last 15 games lmao

    That’s nutty

    If the Bucks stay one or two and Harden drops off even a bit from his ridiculous production, it should be easy. PG would probably get an easy third, no one else is close.

    yeah if that becomes consistent he's unguardable (he's basically unguardable right now)

    PG deserves a lot more credit since he's a superior defender and defends his opponents best offensive player night in night out.

    All 3 have a very big case on some level.

    Harden out here doing Wilt, Mj, Elgin type scoring numbers while averaging 8 assists and winning with a broken down roster majority of the year. Now tied for the 4th seed.

    Harden chasing stats. Giannis chasing rings.

    So, Giannis is the mvp so far.

    Incorrect guys but it’s okay. I would put James above Paul George

    Giannis or Harden have pretty legit cases imo. I think PG is a clear third, but I don’t mean that as a pejorative, if that makes any sense

    Yeah I think PG is very easily third right now. But I think he could possibly end up sitting above Harden. I don’t really expect the voters to give much love to George though when it’s time.

    PG is probably a lock for DPOY tho unless Gobert sneaks in towards the end of the year.

    One is having an insane historic season in order to keep his team afloat and has been doing it for a while now, more valuable to his team currently imo. Paul George could definitely leap him if PG does what he’s doing for a little bit longer.

    Harden shot a three up 14 in garbage time to keep a stupid ‘streak’ alive. The other destroyed my Blazers.

    PG wins.

    Thanks for Thon. He’s kinda fun

    it's as worthless to me as Westbrook's triple double streak - both happened when players were on terrible teams - it's just stat chasing because this Rockets team and that Thunder team had zero good players on it outside of Harden and Westbrook

    it doesn't impress me
