“Who is the best NBA player to never win an MVP award?”
On Christmas day, The New York Times published an editorial in which it asked some of its sportswriters who the NBA’s best player of the decade was and the nod went to Stephen Curry.
While the Times conceded the only other possibility was LeBron James, Curry won “in a landslide.”
Just as I did last year, here are my quick-hit thoughts on the 2017 NBA Finals:
There will be countless essays and analysis on the 2016 NBA Finals, so here are my quick-hit thoughts:
Sports punditry and analysis is always full of bad arguments and poorly thought-out opinions. But the worst sports argument of the past decade concerns LeBron James.
LeBron has played in the NBA Finals nine of the last ten years and ten total. He’s led a team to the Finals in each conference. And critics point out that he’s won *only* four.
His record in the Finals is 4–6. And that means he sucks.
