No Pump Fakes

The Washington Wizards are one of the top seeds in the East and on track to be a playoff team. Is it safe to say the Wizards came out better without Russ? Is DeMar DeRozan the most underrated star player? DeMar has fought through so much adversity in his career and is finally in a position to win with Chicago. Will he be a Hall of Famer or does he need a chip? Have people forgot about the midrange game and is it the most important shot in the game when it comes down to the clutch?

Why aren’t we judging stars consistently? AD is judged more critically than guys like Steph and Giannis. When you play for the Los Angeles Lakers it comes with heightened expectations and pressure. KD, LeBron, Kawhi, Steph, and Giannis have all won Championships as the number one option on their respective teams. Does Anthony Davis need to be the number one option on the Lakers and win a chip to be a top-5 player in the NBA?

Can Paul George win MVP? How is he not in the conversation when the likes of Rudy Gobert and DeMar DeRozan are early candidates?

Why isn’t anyone talking about Damian Lillard’s struggles and will the Wizards be a top-4 seed?
