    Pwoah, tbf I haven't watched as religiously as I have until the past five years so not too qualified for the earlier ones. Still gonna give it a go though maybe just for more recent.

    Fixed that for u. Just because someone won an MVP that year doesn’t mean they’re the best player in the world.

    Lmao you could potentially argue LeBron over some of my picks but every single one since 2009 is ridiculous? Curry was for sure on top in 2015 and 16, and KD dominated LeBron in 2018, Bron didn’t even make the playoffs in 2019.

    KD is a b---- though so I’ll never put him as the top player in the world for any year, and I hope some writers leave him of their hall of fame ballots so he’s not unanimous and he cries over it

    That’s a bit sensationalist.

    What does any of that have to do with him overall being the best player? You’re gonna tell me that last year LeBron wasn’t the best player in the world still? You can honestly say there were years from 09-now where he wasn’t the best player? KD made the biggest b---- move in sports history, won a couple, and still was #2. There was nothing dominating about it. Put me in the year 2014 and if I’m picking between KD and LeBron I pick LeBron every single time, MVP or not.

    Just cause someone won an mvp that year or didn’t have the most successful season doesn’t mean anything, especially when talking about a top 2 player ever still at the peak of his powers.
