The OKBET MVP will be Picking this season and honor your favorite NBA players with the help of votes from the NBA community.
Who is deserving of the Most Valuable Player award in 2021-22? The NBA Philippines staff makes their selections.
Ansis, JC: Many people do not consider Luka Doncic to be a worthy MVP candidate, owing to his slow start and how out of shape he appeared at the start of the season.
However, if the MVP award is based on putting up impressive individual stats while also making your team better, Luka should be considered.
This season, he is the main player in the NBA averaging somewhere around 28-9-8. Just Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook have achieved this accomplishment in a solitary season.
Although Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid, and Giannis Antetokounmpo have all put up big numbers this season, Luka has held his own against the three top MVP candidates.
Besides, the Dallas Mavericks took critical steps this season, completing the normal season as the fourth-best group in the West, owing generally to Doncic’s extraordinary play. They secured home-court advantage in the first round, whenever the Mavericks first facilitated a season finisher series beginning around 2011. What’s more, we are in general mindful of how that season finished.
MVP will be Picking this season: Luka is a special player who continues to improve year after year. I know he’s not going to win MVP this season, but LUKA MAGIC gets my vote.
Polo Bustamante: This pandemic has shown me the significance of working on my life. I understood that I needn’t bother with a lot to be content in my life. Shoes? I’m fine with a couple of fewer matches. Going out to eat? Permit me to set it up myself. This improved approach is additionally viable for how I might interpret loops.
MVP will be Picking this season: There are numerous approaches to determining what constitutes an MVP. But sometimes it’s as simple as awarding it to the best player on the best team. Devin Booker is that guy this season. When compared to the other MVP contenders, his averages aren’t as eye-popping, but his big games are arguably just as impressive. On March 25, he scored 49 points against Nikola Jokic and averaged 35 points against Joel Embiid.
When it comes to team value, Booker has been just as important to the Suns this season as Jokic and Embiid. Even though Ayton was out for 13 games in December and January, the Suns went 11-2, with Booker averaging nearly 27 points. Despite missing Chris Paul for a month, Phoenix went on an 11-4 run. Booker appeared in 11 of those games and led the team in playmaking, averaging seven assists per game.
MVP will be Picking this season: Booker has been just as impressive and valuable as the two MVP frontrunners. With him leading the way, the Suns set a franchise record with 64 wins this season. That is 13 wins more than the Philadelphia 76ers and 16 wins more than the Denver Nuggets. This season, they have unquestionably been the best team in the league. That all appears to be quite simple to me.
Miguel Flores: Here are three stats from players who are all in the running for MVP this season.
The Player A: 27.1 ppg, 13.8 rpg, 7.9 apg, 1.5 spg, 0.9 bpg, 62.0 eFG%, 0.0 BSRN
Player B: 29.9 ppg, 11.6 rpg, 5.8 apg, 1.1 spg, 1.4 bpg, 58.2 eFG%, 0.0 BSRN
Player C: 30.6 ppg, 11.7 rpg, 4.2 apg, 1.1 spg, 1.5 bpg, 53.4 eFG%, 1.0 BSRN
The Player A and Player B have excellent stats but no BSRN – the abbreviation for the highly advanced stat known as Ben Simmons-Related Noise. Nikola Jokic is Player A, and Giannis Antetokounmpo is Player B.
Intriguingly, Player C leads all qualified superstars in BSRN, just ahead of Kevin Durant (0.5). Calculator Twitter, no matter how many stats and spreadsheets you look at, never includes BSRN in their calculations.
MVP will be Picking this season: BSRN should have hurt not only Embiid’s stats but also Philly’s record. Despite the BSRN, Embiid led the Sixers to a third-place finish in the East and had a career year. We must award it to Embiid in the name of math and science.
Charmie Lising: Joel Embiid led the league in scoring while also being a defensive force. In what could have been a lost season for the Philadelphia 76ers, he was unstoppable. He carried his team on his broad shoulders and maintained faith in the process in the face of adversity.
Jon Rodriguez: Embiid played 68 games this season, his most ever in a season. Jokic has taken on the role of rim protector and rebounder while keeping true to his magician with the basketball. Embiid has had his share of load-carrying for a team in shambles.
Yoyo Sarmenta: It’s not difficult to point to his double 40-point pair and so on. However, you need to explain what that means with the number “Have you seen what he did recently?” play. There are barely noticeable differences between the degree, everything considered, and the ingenuity behind it.
Renee Ticzon: The MVP award is all about impact and consistency. Jokic has only missed eight games, and the Nuggets went 2-6 without him. He averaged 31.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 7.5 assists in February. Oh, and he did this all by himself.
