NBA MVP Debate: All Your Opinion Wrong

The beauty of our annual MVP Concern and Wish is that it is an award without a defined definition, allowing for a wide and fascinating range of viewpoints, philosophies and options, each valid in their own right.

However, I regret to inform you that all of your MVP posts are wrong.

I don’t mean your actual Option Error. If you’re a defender of Nikola Jokic, that’s great. His biography is strong. Joel Embiid? Very important. Giannis Antikonmo? Qualified with difficulty.

Names are not problematic – they are arguments. They are the cliched rationales, the half-baked axioms, the dying certainty. I’ve covered the NBA for 25 years, won awards for the most part, and I still can’t say with absolute certainty who is the best player he is (Although I have my own definition). But I can tell you what it is not.
