    African Americans cannot accept that there are non-African people who are better than them in basketball.

    Luka could cure cancer with basketball and pundits like SAS would still find way to downplay him. SGA is good, no question about that. But taking down (not sure if it’s the right phrase) to uplift another just leaves a bad taste. At this point, the only argument for MVP is between Luka and Jokic. SGA played subpar these last 20 games or so. Of course, everyone deserves credit for what they’ve done for their team.

    But if the argument is always about team standings, then it only shows MVP criteria every year is very unclear.

    it’s crazy how SGA is so biased towards black players. Supposed to be unbiased as part of the media but clearly can’t do that.

    Stephen A. Smith: If I scream louder than my argument gets stronger. In reality, it is Jokic or Luka.

    Man Stephen A right on this one SGA deserves it. He won’t get it but he deserves it.1 seed in west conference where the entire field 1-10 was at least 10 games over .500 this year’s west is STACKED. Nthey are the 2nd youngest team he is the lone superstar on that team everyone else is young n on the come up still.

    SGA definitely deserves MVP. 10 seed to the 1 seed. THE YOUNGEST TEAM EVER TO WIN THE 1 SEED!!

    Steven “DA” Smith had a smirk on his face the whole segment and was claiming to be influence any real hoop guy will not be influenced by a “DA” who wants clicks!!

    SAS why not surprise us with your take for once in your life, it’s getting quite boring with you going against Jokic’s greatness constantly…..

    If Luka carries the youngest team to the #1 seed at 25 averaging 30 he’d be MVP . Not sure why Shai is being disrespected .
