John Tilloston, the 17th century Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, once said, “To be able to bear provocation is an argument of great reason, and to forgive it of a great mind.” Joseph Joubert, the 19th century French moralist and essayist, gave it to us like this, “The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.” Then the big homie, “Winston Churchill, broke it down like a playa at a pimp convention when he spit, “The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”
Well playas…the best argument against these dull fake media-types choosin’ the NBA’s MVP is a five minute conversation with the average voter. On every TV station that I turn to or radio dial I settle into there’s a dun askin’ the question “Who’s this year’s NBA MVP?”
If you’ve got to ask that question bruh, you shouldn’t be allowed to write or talk sports at any level! Young Russ is averagin’ a freakin’ triple double for the season at this point! Stop it!! He’s puttin’ up 31.7 points, 10.6 rebounds and 10 assists!!! Nobody’s averaged a triple double since the Big O did it durin’ the 1961-62 season!!! That was 55 years ago!!!
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The MVP is an individual award! Not a team award bruh! This dun is havin’ the best statistical season of ANY player in the history of the game since Oscar Robinson!!! Stop it!
Boyz keep throwin’ The Beard, LeBron, Kawhi and even Isaiah Thomas on the table. And yes, they all are ballin’ but none of them are doin’ what this dun is doin’ and not even close!! Stop havin’ a subjective conversation with an objective topic. Who’s the MVP? Or in layman’s terms, we all know that the freakin’ MVP isn’t really given to the actual MVP because duns like Jordan and LeBron would have won the award 10 times already. It’s really given to the most outstanding player every year.
Who’s been more outstandin’ than Young Russ this season? I’m listenin’!
For decades all we’ve ever heard from boyz arguin’ greatest players of all-time is the glory of Oscar Robinson averagin’ a triple double. He’s been thrown into the conversations of greatest players of all-time because of that reason alone. Most cats know nothin’ else about the Big O other than the triple double season. He averaged 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists that year.
Now if we can talk about Oscar for 55 years because he did the unthinkable, the triple double for an entire season. Then how in the world are we even havin’ a discussion about who’s the freakin’ MVP for this season alone at this point? Stop it! You sound crazy even bringin’ anybody else’s name up. Stop me when I start lyin’!
