As always very entertaining and insightful!
Like to hear the opinions of veteran GM's and thanks for mentioning the Hawks in a good way
We were off to a great start in the series but BI reacted and gave us a beating in game 3. Hope we can go back to the way we played the last half of the season.
The biggest surprises for me so far is Denver and Houston, Denver has obviously the talent but Phoenix is no team you can take on easy. And Houston is holding up awesome with all this bad luck. Monk is unbelievable.
For MVP and ROY I'm with you. Simmons (no question) and Tatum (very close over Bagley).
DPOY I'm not decided yet. Lonzo deserves it but he only played 43 games, which would put him out of my list. But as far as I know it was the mistake of the former GM not to bring him back in the lineup. So not sure.
GMOY I have Kyrus in my list. If this team is healthy they will make some noise. Marcos of course also right in this tier. Lets see who gets my vote.
Thanks for having me in the COY conversation! I personally are very happy how this team performed going into the playoffs. But I also think here it is where the coaching is really deciding. As a rookie playoff coach I enjoy it a lot, but would not out myself there before I can win an actual series. And BI is not laying down doing nothing
