  • Listen to Jackie as long as she sticks to the Nuggets and not the Lakers, which were going to get demolished by the no show Clippers.

  • Are yall serious? Was there any year in Jimmy Butler's career that gives you that indication? Dude is about winning.

  • No. Lebron, Gianis, Durant/Harden/Luka. Bron will probably win it this time.

  • The hype on Butler is kind of stupid. He had ONE really good playoff run after being nowhere near one of the best players in the league for the last 10 years. Butler never even made it past the second round before this. And it's not at all like he hard carried the Heat. It was an entire team effort that got them there. Now everyone's acting like he's a top 5 or top 3 player who alyways carries his team to the finals and "doesn't care about stats". Butler is good, but he doesn't put up amazing stats because he's simply not an MVP-level player.

    Drew PersaudDrew Persaud8 ditë më parë
  • I doubt it. He'd like that but probably wont push for it. He looks like the kind of guy that would cheer on his teammates and let them blossom. MVPs typically have the ball in their hands most of the time and stat pad.

  • with the way mvps are decided today, jimmy doesn't stand a chance. simply put, he doesn't do mvp things, he's not flashy and impressive on paper but he's a good leader and shows up when people are counting on him. it's kinda sad how players like this have no chance of winning mvps when they should because they are actually VALUABLE to the team

  • I love Jimmy,his attitude is what sets the Heat from other teams in the NBA,but Jimmy can't put up elite numbers every night,nor does he shoot the 3 particularly well,and still defend the best player on the floor,that will keep him from winning a MVP,because that award is all about numbers

  • definitely not, this shouldnt even be a discussion. here are players that will rank above him when healthy: KD,AD,Lebron,Curry,Kawhii,PG13,Giannis,trae young,Doncic,Kristaps,harden,westbrook,lillard,embiid,jokic,towns,irving,tatum,mitchell,beal,simmons,gobert,zion,booker,gobert and then there are players like cp3 who are very likely to rank above him aswell. (the names are in no order)

  • MPJ is going to leave. Watching Nuggets games is so frustrating they don’t give him the ball near as much as they should.

    That Was LegitnessThat Was Legitness10 ditë më parë
    • It was his first full year man. Plus Murray & Jokic both improved and showed out. They’ll definitely utilize him more next year-if he cares about winning he’ll be there for another contract. If not I see him running to NYK to be the #1 Option.

  • Porter had limited playing time with 20 minutes if lucky and he's the 3rd leading scorer. Coach doesn't know how to use him. Porter meeds to request a trade.

    Kevin LeKevin Le10 ditë më parë
    • Yeah, because he was a rookie, and you know, rookies usually have limited minutes, especially on a Nuggets team that was good without him. He got the minutes all REAL Nuggets fans were expecting. Some fans are a little delusional in thinking MPJ should’ve been starting right away. Malone being patient is smart not only in terms of MPJ’s health, but also in terms of giving him time to learn the system. You saw how MPJ was making defensive mistakes all season long while he was out there, and on a contending team like the Nuggets, they can’t afford to have him making those mistakes with starter type minutes as you suggest he should be getting. Sure, if he wants to get traded to a bottom feeder to get some minutes, go right ahead. But if he wants to be a part of something special, he will spend the winter learning spacing on defense, and not to take plays off. I’m sure he will be starting next season, so we will see how he does, but I don’t question coach Malone’s strategy. The Nuggets are brilliant!

  • No, he’s a semi-reluctant superstar. He’s driven to win and elevate his teammates to a level where they can win, which means he’s not interested in putting up 30 points every game, he believes in the likes of Bam and Herro so he’ll share the ball because he backs them to deliver

  • If they start treating the MVP like an MVP award instead of the best player on the best team award, then absolutely he'll be there. My guesses are it's going to be Greek Freak, AD, Lebron, Durant, and Luka that are the main names being heard for MVP, maybe Lillard pops up there too.

  • I disagree with Jackie on the Heat being better when Jimmy isn't as aggressive as he was during the Finals. The Heat got 2 wins with Jimmy Butler being Jimmy Buckets, the other 4 games not so much and trust me when I say I'm still celebrating the Lakers championship victory! I can't deny his ability to score at will and it was on full display on the biggest stage as well as be productive other ways on the court (assists and rebounds with defense). He will be a top 3 MVP candidate as is but if Miami adds another (consistent) scorer to the team which they lacked in the NBA Finals those chances definitely diminish.
