Our guys Aaron Berlin & Otto Strong talk about the mounting injuries suffered by stars and key players around the league and how the truncated season, which followed a shortened off-season, has had an impact. Fred VanVleet expressed his frustrations in saying, by the league rushing back to play, “it’s pretty much all about business this year on every level.” One team having fun, though, is the New York Knicks, who have won 6 straight as of April 20th. The fellas then get into a discussion about the league MVP race with around a quarter of the season remaining. Is Nikola Jokic the clear favorite or is Joel Embiid more deserving? What impact has the injuries to all the top stars had on the race? Aaron and Otto bring up the idea of having postseason play factor into the award criteria. They also look at some other creative ways to determine the winner — could a point system involving the voting totals for Players of the Week and Month awards be something to explore? Finally, while it appears that a “Super League” in European soccer is a bad idea, we still had fun with the concept and wondered which teams would make the cut if we had one in professional basketball here in North America.
