Not sure if I was suppose to make a new thread considering we've been discussing this in numerous threads, but anyways, Congrats Westbrook.

 

 

Got to love the speech.

Huge double standard. If he won it this year with a sub 50 win team then we should redo all the awards from past years.

Good speech. Terrific season.

Awful that the voting criteria changes every single season.

Completely well-deserved. Incredible that the man didn't suffer any major injuries laying his body out on the line all over the place the way he did this past season especially game after game.

Love me Russ.

 

One of the best seasons I can literally ever remember anyone having.

MJ

Shaq

Kobe

Bird

Magic

Hakeem

Harden too

 

Westy tops them all. Unreal.

 

In other news, its been 4 full seasons since LBJ won, which also seems unreal.

Not like the guys not playing well. Wow

Excited for  1. Lebron! (Still love me some Kobe, but damn this guy is amazing) 2. Another big get (Whether in FA or in a trade we need some attractions and closers) 3. Young Guys making big jump (Assuming we have anyone left after more necessary moves either genius ones or in desperation)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

This is how the award should be given out every season.

 

Russ was a top three player in the NBA (I'll argue second best), and was far and away the most important to his team.  As long as you take them to the playoffs, those things should complete the criteria.
