Net Rating differential on and off the court this season-
Paul George: +19.3 (!!!)
Thunder have a +10.0 Net Rating this season with PG on the court, -9.3 with him off.
That's essentially the difference between the Warriors (+9.3) and Cavs (-10.7).
Portland’s Evan Turner says “everybody is going crazy for Giannis (Antetokounmpo) and James (Harden)” and that they’re “unbelievable,” but “Paul (George) is the best that we probably went up against all year. He’s at a completely different level. It’s hard to even explain.”
Tonight, #Giannis recorded his 12th game of at least 25 PTS, 15 REB and 5 AST this season, which ties @SHAQ (2000-01) for the most in a single season since 1976-77. #FearTheDeer https://t.co/8ZPMsip7ir
Tonight is Giannis Antetokounmpo's 12th 25-Point, 15-Rebound, 5-Assist game this season, which ties Shaquille O'Neal for the most 25-Point, 15-Rebound, 5-Assist games in a single season since the NBA-ABA Merger. (1976-77)
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for “let’s debate the relative perimeter pick and roll coverage of Paul George and Giannis” but when the only guys in front of him scoring are Wilt, MJ, and Elgin, and you’re averaging 8 assists, and you’re gonna win 50 games? Resume is resume.
@venmohenderson@vBangin@RealSkipBayless Giannis is in a conference where 10 out of 15 teams don’t have a winning record. That’s pathetic. And Harden has had to play more minutes and work way harder for his team to get wins with all the injuries they’ve dealt with.
Lilliard y Turner llenaron de elogios post juego a PG. Ambos se decantaron de que es el MVP, el primero diciendo que si todo sigue así debe serlo, y el segundo resaltando la temporada del 13 por sobre los flashes que tienen Giannis y Harden de la prensa.
@Repenta46340424@BucksBased Haha Paul George stat pads? If you said Westbrook maybe but PG? Cmon now. Also did you see the Bucks without Giannis the other night vs Magic? Not exactly a dominant team there
Tell my James Harden should be NBA MVP this season and I'll continue to bring up 44% FG and 37% 3PT. The real MVP race is between PG13 and Giannis.

@pointhirty2@NBA@Giannis_An34@Bucks Harden doesn’t let his stats get in the way of winning for example against the lakers, Harden had about 58 points in OT and we were up by about 2, if harden was really stat padding he would have demanded the ball to get a new career high on the intentional fts, but instead he let
I don't think Giannis finishes top 3. I think 76ers rise and Embiid averages 27-13 (just like Giannis), but for #1 EC seed.
I think Paul George will continue to rice, OKC gets #2 WC seed.
I think Harden's Rockets get #3 seed in WC. And he still wins MVP.
