      @Brandon Purdy So you didn’t understand my point about context? Yes he will be talked about, but how he will be talked about is the important part. It will sometimes be necessary to talk about him, but did you need to mention him in your original comment? Weren’t the other examples you gave more than enough to validate your point? If yes, then I just don’t see the need to mention him when you could avoid it. That’s the crux of my argument, if you still insist on talking about him a positive light when it really isn’t needed I can only really take that as you honouring him, which I find weird considering what he did.

      @hans hansen If talking about Karl Malone when I'm talking basketball is honoring him. Then I'm guilty. I will be guilty in the future. I have the ability to separate whatever he did on and off the court. You don't. Sorry, but he was too good and will be talked about.

      @Bones Jones he compared vastly different sample sizes without even mentioning it (season starts to entire seasons). He did not consider those players who did accumulate 42 ppg, rpg and apg but did not win an MVP. He presented the MVP ladder as if it were some reliable stat to cite, instead of the loose assessment it is at this point, particularly with so many good players.

    • Bones Jones
      Bones Jones Před 2 měsíci

    When you compare ppg or other stat lines against historical records, would it not make sense to take into account that nowadays more points are scored in games? I.e. rather than focusing on ppg, it could be more telling to compare the percentage of total points that an individual has contributed.

    In defence of the old-school MVP votes: It feels like the perception of the terminology has changed throughout the years. Like nowadays it often just comes down to "Best Player" while it originally was more like the player who was the best in relation to his teammates. To give a guy credit even if he didn't make play-offs with his trash team but popped off individually.

    • Nima Ghomeshi
      Nima Ghomeshi Před měsícem +2

      Not sure you can put those three players into the same box of "rookies who started off well and then went downhill". Rose was an MVP with multiple great seasons before an injury compromised him and now he's still playing well but not at the same level. Griffin is a similar story but was never anywhere near as great as Rose. Lin had an amazing stretch of games in one season and that's about all that can be said for him. So, again, three very different players.

    I’ve been saying this for a while but there should be MVP and also Offensive Player of the Year award similar to the NFL simply because we’re living in an age of unbelievable offensive production and it feels wrong to leave guys out of that recognition.
    If this was the case, in this season so far we could have Giannis be MVP (better all round player offense and defense) and Doncic get Offensive Player of the Year for his insane PER and offensive stats.

      And what jxmy saying is that if this might seem confusing there is a simple explanation : evolution. Between different eras the game has changed alot. And one of the reasons is quantity. Yes quantity affect quality. More teams brings more players. More players brings more competition. More competition leads to increase the odds of improving so you can win which finally leads to more odds for a new star to come up. And as a new star is born others will be inspired ahd motivated to get better so they could stay close or even pass him. A self powered circle. In one word evolution. Which explains why the average level of today's era is better than those from former eras. Which again explains why as the years pass a more complete and better player will consider as the goat. So far we have Bill and Wilt, then Magic Kareem and Larry, then MJ and we might have to wait so we can see who will surpass MJ. I know some don't believe this is possible but in 100 years from now maybe not even one of this players will be in the eternally goat convo.

    I wouldn't read too much into the numbers and stats.. we are currently in a MAJOR inflation period, ironically, in basketball. Just constant non stop chucking of outside shots, literally faster shot clock, players basically aren't allowed to play ANY defense in the regular season, much faster run n gun offenses. The NBA wants every team to be like the 7 seconds or less Suns.. so, yea, the numbers IMO are pretty misleading right now. everyone's numbers are just bloated and padded at the moment. When a guy like Duncan Robinson is making almost $100 million basically off bloated "advance stats" that should tell you everything you need to know. Robinson would be lucky to even ride the bench in the 90s and early 00s.

    The NBA MVP really shouldnt be this controversial. It should be the best player on the best team. If youre a top three seed youre in the conversation. Fourth seed or below you shouldnt even be in contention. Putting up big numbers on losing teams is useless. You have to win. This years discussion should be between two people right now: Giannis and Tatum. Both are putting up incredible numbers and are clearly the best players on their teams (which are the two best teams in the NBA at the moment). Guys like Luka Ja Curry etc. just arent winning enough to be considered

    Duca Moris Před 2 měsíci +2

    This was a really amazing an entertaining video. However I do need to mention two things...
    Firstly, that one of the reasons why Jokic got back to back MVP's was because he wasn't only one of the best players in the world, but he was one of the most consistent ones as well. And I guarantee you that not all 10 of these players are going to keep this level of play up for an entire seasons - While also doing so without injury.
    And secondly, although all of these players are putting up insane numbers, I personally think it's always better to compare players to their own eras rather than comparing them pound for pound. I mean can you really compare some of Kobe's highest scoring seasons which were done in one of the lowest scoring eras to now? For example, back when Kobe averaged 35.4pts in '06-07 the average points for a team was 98.7, while the average points for a team now is 112.8. So although I'm fully aware that most of these players are not just putting up crazy scoring numbers, but crazy seasons in general, I'm simply trying to point out that context does matter.
    Great video regardless though, and let's all hope that they all continue to play on this level.

      @Airball Edits on IG thats a stupid argument. Maaaan sports people have no critical thinking skills. Value isnt determined by total wins its determined by how big the gap is between when youre on the court vs off the court
      Real (+/-) should be the primary factor for determining value. That literally what the stat is designed for . Of course theres nuance to everything but team wins is literally the worst way to determine INDIVIDUAL value
      Take GS and Dallas. GS would undoubtedly be the worst team in NBA history if not for Steph (as evidenced by both his Historic [+/-] and the eye test.)
      Dallas is similar. Without Luka doing everything Dallas would be a lottery team. I find it maddening how people give individual players MORE credit for having better players around them for an INDIVIDUAL award
      The league is too good for one guy to really carry a team fully (another reason steph shoulda won MVP the year he took a bunch of bums into the Play -in tourney) ya need GOOD TEAMMATES to WIN

    Giannis is showing that he is the best two-way player of the league in this era.
    Monstrous numbers on the offensive end...
    But it pains me to say that his defensive numbers are impressive in this era.
    Seeing the stats of the other two (Jordan and Hakeem), I remember when defense was actually producing results.
    Nowadays, blocking someone AND stealing a ball once per game is impressive enough to win DPOY.
    Defense is at an all-time low in this era which is probably why these insane offensive numbers all of these stars are showing, though truly impressive and record-breaking, isn't as awe-inspiring to me as it should be.
    And before people call me an old-head, I'm just about to turn 26 this December.
    I'm just biased cause defense is my favorite part of any sport, including League of Legends.

      @Kyler Jeffrey Commercializing a sport brings in more money for the players which isn't a bad thing.
      But sacrificing half of the game (a.k.a. making defense way too difficult and offense way too easy) to pander to the casual majority isn't the way to go about it in my opinion.

  • Michael Jordan
    Michael Jordan  Před 2 měsíci +7

    The MVP has definitely changed in importance and value over the years. The importance of a game-winning shot is much higher now than before, so the MVP has changed with those factors in mind. The importance of the MVP is based on how valuable that MVP player is to the team's success. For example, what would the Warriors do without Steph Curry? They wouldn't have any success. The MVP is based on the importance that the MVP player has on his team. I also think the NBA MVP changed from being the scoring champion to being the best player who can get their teams to win. The NBA now is focused on who can get their teams to the Playoffs and the Finals. It takes more than just a high scorer to win the MVP now, they have to impact the game in many ways. I think that the new NBA era focuses on high IQ and defense now, not just scoring.

    • Mihailo Pavlović
      Mihailo Pavlović Před 2 měsíci

      @TheAnswer13 Ofc not, but I was reffering to the comment that was made. Giannis is one of my favourite players, he is Greek, and Serbs and Greeks like each other very much, I was cheering for him in those finals, the guy is a monster really, and probably the best player in the league, and you gotta give props to Milwaukee for building a perfect team around him, but people like to discredit players whose teams do worse, because their star players dont have good supporting cast. For example people discredit Jokic, because his team went out early in the first round, but look at the team they had. With his other two best players on team, they are #2 in the west, and Jokic isnt averaging some crazy numbers, because he doesnt have to, Giannis is #2 in the usg rate, Luka is #4, Embiid is #3, Morant is #5, Shai #7, Tatum #9, KD #10, all those guys that are considered for the MVP also have high usage rates, Curry is #20, and Jokic is #53. A 2-time MVP has less usg rate than his second best player on the team, and he is taking way less shots than any players metioned, he is the most unselfish superstar in the league.

    • TheAnswer13
      TheAnswer13 Před 2 měsíci

      @Mihailo Pavlović So are you going to punish Giannis for example and not give him the MVP just because he has a good supporting cast? That doesn't make sense at all.

    • Mihailo Pavlović
      Mihailo Pavlović Před 2 měsíci

      I mean without Jokic the Nuggets would be maybe even worse, same probably goes for Dallas without Luka. Without Giannis, I think Milwaukee are still a playoff/play-in team, I would say so about Philly without Embiid, and Boston without Tatum. All of these teams are at least in play-in without these guys. Suns without Booker could be too. But Warriors and the Nuggets especially without Jokic and Curry, are not even making the play-in, no chance

    Amazing video, sir. Truly. Do you feel there's a change in defense in modern era vs say the '90's or 2000's? Creating this possibility? Or is the game and player skill level truly so much higher now such that an average team could go toe to toe with a championship team from those earlier eras? Lastly, if modern 3-pts were assessed a slightly lower value of say 2.25 or 2.5 pts per, for statistical exploration reasons, how much would that better align current to older era performances? Fascinating video.

      @Eren Lack of athleticism? Nah. First of all, Doncic is quite athletic and especially, athletic enough. Multiple all time greats werent crazy athletic or actually had some of their best perfomances after they lost a bit of their athleticism. He's also not a ball hog. He just plays on the Mavs who barely have any playmaking and even if somebody does, the dropoff with Doncic not handling the ball is so great, that its a bad offensive choice to not have it in his hands. If you think he'd be 'hogging the ball' if he'd play for GS, well, ofc not lol.
      As for the defense thing, I agree. Virtually all players considered all time greats were great on both sides of the ball. However, Doncic is so talented offensively that he'd still get in the convo if he actually gets the accolades with it.

      @Lonny Breaux because he does a step back so they just call him harden. Probably don't even watch him play. Let alone know he gets most of his points from the post, or inside, and has never shot under 45% unlike harden.

    Can you do one to show defensive stats? I'm curious to see how the numbers have changed over time. I suspect a major decrease.

    What I want to know is what is contributing to this year's difference from prior seasons. Rule change? Scheme/philosophy change? Or did everyone just decide to turn it on this year? I don't follow basketball but I'm genuinely curious.

    TBH I think this is largely because of the evolution of the game rather than the accession of these individual players. It’s easier to rack up points when you can flail your arms around outside the arc for three free throws. It’s easier to score when you can ram your shoulder full speed into a defender and get sent to the line for it. It’s easier when you have four other guys that can shoot the three and the defense has to space out to them.
    These players are still all time greats, but their numbers are greatly inflated from years past.

      @Alex Romero changed the foul rule but then stopped Enforcing it quickly. Thinking Basketball had a video about that.

      Jimmy with bad take again and conveniently left out how easy it is to get combined 42 pts reb ast these days. Players averaging 27+ points and 15+ combined rebounds and assists are so common the past 5 years. So there are multiple (5+?) players each year with combined 42 stats in the past 5-7 years.

      Well they did change the foul rules a bit, which is partly why harden hasn’t done as well
