Do they vote before the series is over? That’s weird.
I don’t know, perhaps I’m just remembering ASG MVP voting occurring during the 4th quarter.

Dude, 99% of fans know he can't and won't and that's the whole problem with him. The fact he turns it on and off when he wants to is the problem.
Like I said…. Wouldn’t last.

It was a shame. They were ahead for three quarters but you knew it was inevitable that the Nuggets would pull ahead in the 4th.

Situational awareness is not his strong suit.

We could probably drop the “situational” part from that statement.

Also awareness of how he sounds, awareness of what he’s putting into his body, awareness of how to get to the arena on time…

In fairness, DA did put up good numbers in that game, and Portland seemed headed for a possible upset through the first 3 quarters before Jokic and the Nuggets came roaring back. It wasn't a bad overall game for DA despite that one lowlight play.

And of course this play doesn’t get posted:

Ayton has always been a high percentage mid range shooter. I’ll give him that. Probably his best quality.

He's also got a really good touch around the rim and solid defensive footwork. Just no motor to get better.
