I think Durant will be the MVP.

If they can stay healthy GS is a lock for the #1 seed again, with 65+ wins, and after his FMVP last season I think people will be more open to voting for him as MVP.

Harden and Westbrook will see their numbers drop with Paul and George joining them, Lebron won't care about the regular season, and Kawhi will have lower numbers and fewer wins than Durant.

George would be lucky to hold the ball for 5 seconds in every possession
And Curry will have another 0 Final MVP votes

Simmons will get his points bro, especially off top of the key/baseline drives. His assists should be through the roof, I think he could average 8+
Simmons isn't averaging no 8+ assists.

I think Fultz has a better chance of being ROY on that team than Simmons.

And truthfully? I think Lonzo will be ROY. He will be giving starter minutes form the get go (just like Fultz and probably Simmons) but he has no one that will take shots or possessions away from him. He basically has the green light to have the ball in his hands as much as he wants.

I do believe that Fultz will be a better player though.

My take on Simmons? A "lighter" version of Blake Griffin, but he wont achieve that his rookie year.

We all have opinions but yours will be wrong

Ball is way overhyped but that's the lakers on every young player of theirs.

Reg season will expose ball

I say Ball or DSJ for ROY. Tatum wont get the minutes. Simmons and Fultz will be splitting the touches. Fox, I just dont think he will put up big numbers.

Hey man, I think Fultz will be the better player. I'm just saying that there will be a lot more competition for shots in Philly than in LA.

Fultz > Ball

Ben Simmons favorite. He's going to be a stat stuffer. Fultz may have a rough start adjusting to the speed of the NBA. From defense, from being defended by better players. Ben will do pts rb ast stl and if the Sixers make the playoffs that'll give him an added boost. Should team success weigh in! F*ck no, but look at Milw ROY last season. No way Bucks making playoffs didn't sway votes his way.

One thing that's goes overlooked from Ben Simmons as people focus on his passing/assists and lack of scoring threat? His rebounding. He's a terrific rebounder and that will translate in the NBA for sure.

If I had to pick a ROY that wasn't a Sixer? It'll probably be Dennis Smith over Lonzo Ball.


MVP I have no idea

Embiid? Let's watch him play more than HALF a season before we start even mentioning him in any discussions

The man's played 30 games over 3 seasons, 240 games total, 30 games played

And the guy still runs his mouth like he is a perennial all star

Straight joker
