RUSSELL WESTBROOK (HISTORIC NIGHT) VS LA LAKERS 4/2/19

RUSSELL WESTBROOK POURED HIS HEART OUT IN LASTS NIGHT VICTORY. THIS TYPE OF PERFORMANCE IS WHY HE IS A GREAT PLAYER. I BELIEVE THIS SEASON WE ARE STARTING TO SEE A SHIFT STYLE IN HIS PLAY.

THIS SEASON WE ARE WITNESSING HIS EVOLUTION AS A BASKETBALL PLAYER. HIS BASKETBALL IQ IS STARTING TO BECOME PAR WITH HIS OVERAL ATHLETICISM.

LAST NIGHT WESTBROOK SHOWED ME WHEN HE PUTS HIS TRUST IN HIS TEAMMATES. THEY WANT TO DELIVER BECAUSE THEY ARE FEEDING OFF HIS ENERGY.

WITH HIS RIDICULOUS COURT VISION AND HIS FEARLESSNESS TO ATTACK EVERY REBOUND. LAST NIGHT WESTBROOK HAD HIS IMPRINTS ALL OVER THE GAME.

MORE RECORDS:

HE OFFICIALLY HAS 135 TRIPLE DOUBLES. RANKING HIM BEHIND MAGIC JOHNSON (138) AND OSCAR ROBERTSON (181). FOR THIS SEASON HE HAS 31.

HE IS THE 2ND PLAYER IN NBA HISTORY TO HAVE A 20P 20A 20R GAME. ONLY OTHER PLAYER IS WILT CHAMBERLAIN.

I FEEL LIKE WHEN ITS ALL OVER HE’LL END UP WITH AT LEAST OVER 300 TRIPLE DOUBLES.

-DO WHAT YOU LOVE –

ADD THIS NBA AWARD AND LETS STOP THIS CONFUSION!

ASK YOURSELF WHAT DOES THE MVP MEAN TO YOU?

TO ME,

THE MVP IS THE BEST PLAYER ON THE TEAM WITH THE BEST RECORD IN THE LEAGUE.

REAL SIMPLE,

RIGHT?

I HAVE AN IDEA THAT HOPEFULLY GETS IMPLEMENTED INTO THE LEAGUE.

MY NEW AWARD:

MOP (MOST OUTSTANDING PLAYER)

OR

NBA OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR.

(OPY)

MY AWARD EXPLAINED:

THIS AWARD IS FOR THE BEST OFFENSIVE PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE FOR THAT YEAR. THIS AWARD WILL GO TO ANY PLAYER THAT IS HAVING AN SPECTULAR SEASON BUT THEY DON’T ALWAYS HAVE THE BEST TEAMMATES FOR VICTORIES.

EXAMPLE:

THIS YEAR IS PERFECT EXAMPLE BECAUSE:

AS I BELIEVE THAT GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO IS THE BEST PLAYER ON THE TEAM WITH THE BEST RECORD.

AND

JAMES HARDEN IS THE BEST OFFENSIVE PLAYER IN THE NBA. IF YOU HAD DOUBTS ABOUT HIS CAREER SETTING SEASON. PEEP HIS STATS FOR THIS YEAR.

WELL ABOUT THAT…..

HIS TEAM’S RECORD IS WORST RECORD THEN LAST YEAR. LAST YEAR HARDEN WAS THE MVP THE NBA. HIS TEAM ALSO HAD THE BEST RECORD IN THE LEAGUE.

INJURIES PLAYED A HUGE ROLE AS HIS USUAGE RATE WHEN HIS TEAM WAS GOING THROUGH THEIR INJURIES WAS AN NBA RECORD.

THIS CHART SHOWS ALL THE MVPS IN THE NBA SINCE 1990.

WHAT DO ALL THESE MVPS HAVE IN COMMON ?

BESIDES WESTBROOK BEING THE OBVIOUS ANOMALY. (TRIPLE DOUBLE YEAR) THE TEAM FINISHED 6TH IN THE WEST.

BESIDES THAT,

ALL THE MVPS SINCE 1990 WERE PLAYERS WITH THEIR TEAMS THAT FINISHED TOP 2 IN THE LEAGUE.

THIS LIST PROVES THAT THE MVP IS THE MOST VALUABLE PLAYER ON THE TEAM THAT HAS WON THE MOST REGULAR SEASON GAMES.

THE PROBLEM:

THE NBA HAS HAD SO MANY OUTSTANDING PLAYERS THAT MORE SHOULD RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR GREATNESS.

REGARDLESS OF TEAM RECORD.

AWARD BREAKDOWN:

MVP = LEADER, BEST RECORD, AND THEY ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN THE FINALS.

MOP/OPY = MOST UNSTOPPABLE , DOESNT NECESSARY RESULTS IN WINS BECAUSE THAT TEAM MAY NOT BE THAT GREAT.

CAN A PLAYER WIN BOTH AWARDS?

YES

HERE ARE 3 YEARS FOR EXAMPLE:

2005-2006

MVP- STEVE NASH (BEST RECORD)

MOP- KOBE (AVERAGED 35.4P 5.3R 4.5A 1.8S & TEAM FINISHED 7TH IN THE WEST)

2002- 2003

MVP- TIM DUNCAN (BEST RECORD)

MOP- TRACY MCGRADY (AVERAGED 32.1P 6.5R 5.5A 1.7S & TEAM FINISHED 7TH IN THE EAST)

1992-1993

MVP- CHARLES BARKLEY (BEST RECORD)

MOP- MICHAEL JORDAN (AVERAGED 32.6P 6.7R 5.5A 2.8S) 3RD BEST RECORD IN THE LEAGUE.

FAREWELL TO D-🌹 2018-2019 SEASON

DERRICK ROSE

INJURY REPORT:

ROSE HAS A CHIP FRACTURE IN HIS RIGHT ELBOW AND HE WILL MISS THE REST OF THE SEASON.

MY PERSONAL OPINION:

AS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLAYERS EVER I JUST WANT DERRICK ROSE TO COME BACK HEALTHY. THERE ARE A LOT OF GOOD PLAYOFF TEAMS THAT COULD USE HIS PRESENCE COMING OFF THE BENCH. HOPEFULLY WE CAN SEE DERRICK ROSE IN THE NBA FINALS.

HE IS A CANDIDATE FOR WINNING 6TH MAN OF THE YEAR.

HE BROKE THE 10K MARK IN SCORING THIS YEAR!

THE FORMER MVP DERRICK ROSE HAS HAD A HUGE TURN AROUND THIS SEASON. HE PLAYED THE MOST GAME SINCE THE NY KNICKS BACK IN 2016-2017 SEASON (PLAYED 64 GAMES).

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DERRICK ROSE MOMENT?

FOR ME IT WOULD HAVE TO BE THE 50PT GAME THIS YEAR. HIS TEAM NEEDED HIM AS THEY WERE DOWN AND HE PUT THE TIMBERWOLVES ON HIS BACK AND DROP A CAREER HIGH 50P IN A WIN!

DERRICK ROSE 2018-2019 HIGHLIGHTS:

DERRICK ROSE STILL HAS AN EXPLOSIVE CROSSOVER AND HE HAS SHOWN THIS YEAR THAT HE IS STILL CAPABLE OF GETTING BUCKETS.
