I'm sure he's more of a placeholder on the list than any viable candidate. Although he has no chance of outvoting Giannis and Harden in this two-horse race, he's still the next-leading vote-getter; that's enough to crack this list, which immutably slots three finalists—no matter how top-heavy the race actually is.

His candidacy here simply exists more by default than merit.

he shouldnt have got there by default either

Jokic and Dame shouldve finished higher. 5th shouldve been best case scenario for Playoff P

Probably, but third place is much easier for voters to skew when there's only a smattering of votes for it. With Giannis and Harden predominating the first- and second-place votes, the third-placer can hinge on a few contrarian voters and casually selected third-, fourth-, and fifth-place votes—neither of which stems from much rational thought.

It's why I take third place and onwards with a grain of salt, and it's why those placements are negligible since virtually no candidates beyond the runner-up (if even that) are actually enhancing their legacies with the race.

One is a All star that got his team to the playoffs

The other is a scrub role player who is nothing without Kawhi

People seriously have short memories. George was going off before hurting his shoulder.

Not only is he an All-NBA 1st team defender but his numbers were:

Dec - 30/9/4 with a TS of 63%
Jan - 30/8/4 TS 60%
Feb - 35/8/5 TS 62% (NBA player of the month)

He hurt his shoulder at the end of Feb. His shooting falls off a cliff and every forgets how well he was playing.
