Westbrook breaking Oscar's record tonight. Unbelievable. Should get unanimous MVP after that.

He will break the record, but I'd still vote for Harden. If you look at the names that play with Harden and the ones that play with Westbrook, they aren't that different. And Harden has a significantly better record

 

Westbrook winning MVP wouldn't be outrageous, though. But it's a TEAM sport, and Harden is much more of a team guy.

How do you come to that conclusion exactly? Simple fact - Harden cheats every game by knowingly travelling. And he flops. Russ does neither. Do you mean win/loss record?

I won't be mad if he wins, it's a tremendous individual performance. But basketball is made easier when you involve your teammates, and Russell was one of the reasons KD left.

 

With that said, it's ok to play for personal glory.

Westbrook is MVP,but there are about 10 guys who could do that if they were only going for personal statistics. The only thing that impressed me was the rebounds, considering he's a point guard.

This. They're a direct contradiction. 30+ points and averaging over 10 assists is contributing 50 points minimum off your own hand. How is that greedy if you're passing that much??

Lebron is MVP every year and thats a fact. They will give it to any jabroni who has a decent campaign just to not give him too many.

Harden has more wins than LeBron with a much worse supporting cast.

Champs: Golden State

Giannis Antetokuonmpo and Steven Adams make the ASG. 

Goddamnit, I am amazing sometimes.

But hell, without Westbrook, those cans on OKC would've won 20 games this season. lol

True, and history suggests the MVP to go to one of the top 2 maybe 3 teams. But they have to dominate. The only person who fits both of those categories is Leonard and I just can't see that happening

Pacers always choke mate. I made $240 off $10 backing Cavs -1.5 at 1/2 time ;)

Yeah, OKC just dont have the talent to hold on to a lead.  Hack a Roberson is too easy to implement as well.  It's basically the NBA version of nut sniffing but unless he learns to free throw it'll keep happening
