NBA media keeps giving KD a pass
With Steph Curry out with an injury the Warriors are limping into the playoffs and getting blown out like no other time during their title run. Even though Kevin Durant has been called the best player in the NBA by some, he hasn’t led Golden State to wins in Curry’s absence. Incredibly, he’s has avoided any criticism from the toothless NBA media. When LeBron had a bad January, the media swarmed him.
The double standard is blatant, but not surprising.
If averaging a triple double is so important why won’t Westbrook repeat as MVP?
Last year, everyone was telling Colin that Russell Westbrook deserved the MVP for the historic statistical achievement of averaging a triple double for an entire season.
This year, Westbrook is 16 rebounds away from averaging a triple double again, but no one is talking about him as an MVP candidate. If it’s so historic shouldn’t he win it again? The inconsistency shows that the MVP voting is a joke and is more about picking something new than it is about picking the best overall player.
