ANY SURPRISE HERE?

I AGREE WITH THIS LIST FOR THE MOST PART. MAYBE I WOULD CHANGE THE ORDER SOMEWHAT BUT IT WOULD NOT MATTER THIS EARLY IN THE SEASON. I BELIEVE THAT THE TOP 5 IS CORRECT. SO FAR IN THE NBA THESE 15 PLAYERS HAVE BEEN THE MOST IMPACTFUL FOR THEIR TEAMS SUCCESS!

ONLY COMPETITION:

TO ME THE MVP RACE BOILS DOWN TO ONLY 3 PLAYERS. GIANNIS, LUKA, & LEBRON!

MY ONLY QUESTION:

HOW CAN GIANNIS LOSE?

-SUCCESS IS MY MINDSET

AARON GORDON 12/4/19 VS PHOENIX SUNS

AARON GORDON FINALLY!!! AND I MEAN FINALLY HAD HIMSELF A GREAT GAME! SO FAR THIS SEASON HE HAS BEEN IN A AWFUL SHOOTING SLUMP. MATTER OF FACT ALL OF HIS STATS FROM LAST YEAR HAVE DROPPED TREMENDOUSLY! (HE IS HAVING A HARD ADJUSTING TO A NEW ROLE)

GAME SCORE:

SUNS (9-11)

114

MAGIC (10-11)

128

LAST NIGHTS PERFORMANCE WAS AN UNEXPECTED ONE. HE WAS AGGRESSIVE EARLY ON AND PLAYED WITH BRUTE FORCE WHILE DRIVING TO THE RIM. IN THIS GAME HE WAS DOING DAMAGE FROM DEEP. GORDON WAS PERFECT FROM 3 AS HE HAD A SILKY FEATHERY TOUCH FROM THE ARK. WITH ALL THAT SAUCE AARON GORDON SCORED A SEASON HIGH IN POINTS! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY SECURED THE VICTORY.

Lebron James – 2019-2020 A INTROSPECTIVE YEAR

In year 17, LeBron James has been given it his all this season. Will he get his 5th MVP award? This year to me it has been a true marvel to see a player of his level be so motivated to add to his legacy.

Now he wants to prove that he can lead the league in assists. And he’s doing it!

Each and every year he got better wether it was with his mindset or skills set. He got better.

Will this be the year he gets his fourth NBA championship?

Is it me or does he look extra hungry this year?

If this is how LeBron will continue to play it’ll will a new chapter in on how he has evolved.

I think him missing out on the playoffs.

Was the best thing for him.

He had time to reflect and think about where he wants to be in history has amongst the all time greats!

He’s an all-time great already.

Why do we have to nitpick a man’s career while it’s still going.

2 QUESTIONS:

Is he the greatest player of his generation?

YES!

Is he the greatest of all time?

SOLIDIFYING HIS PLACE AS A GREAT SCORER:

ARE YOU A FAN OF HOW JAMES HARDEN PLAYS?

LAST NIGHT FOR EXAMPLE HE ATTEMPTED 23 FREE THROWS AND HE WAS ABLE TO SHOOT 87% FROM THE LINE.

THIS HAS BEEN JAMES HARDEN’S GAME-PLAN EVERY NIGHT. FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS HE HAS ATTEMPTED MORE THAN 10 FREE THROWS A GAME.

NO JOKE!

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE ON HOW HE GETS BUCKETS:

-SIZE UP DRIBBLE-

ATTACK! = LAY UP + 1 FT

DRIBBLE , DRIBBLE, PASS = ASSISTS

ATTACK! = MISSED LAY UP / FOUL (2FT)

STEP BACK 3! = 4 POINT POSSIBLE PLAY

MY ASSESSMENT:

I THINK JAMES HARDEN HAS AN EXTREMELY HIGH BASKETBALL IQ WITH ALL-TIME GREAT HANDLES! TO ME HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A SMART BASKETBALL PLAYER EVER SINCE I SAW HIM PLAY IN OKC.

JAMES HARDEN SHOULD GET HIS 3RD SCORING TITLE THIS YEAR!

HOW MANY SCORING TITLES WILL HE FINISH WITH BEFORE HE CAREER IS ALL SAID AND DONE?

HE IS AVERAGING AN INCREDIBLE 38.9 P!
