Magic Johnson’s list of early MVP candidates is so long that even you may be on it
Beloved Twitter person Magic Johnson continued to deliver his unsolicited takes on Monday, feeding his followers a list of players that he thinks have a shot at winning MVP. Now, keep in mind this is the “early MVP conversation,” so some players will probably join it. So, what, we’re probably looking at five or six players, right? LeBron, Russ, KD, Steph, and Kawhi? Maybe Damian Lillard?
How about sixteen? Do you have sixteen players on your MVP watch list? Only one person wins this award, mind you.
Kevin Durant is playing great for the Warriors and should be in the MVP conversation averaging 31pts, 10reb and 4ast.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) October 31, 2016
Also probably in the early MVP conversation is James Harden, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Damian Lillard, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis...— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) October 31, 2016
...Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, Hassan Whiteside, Jimmy Butler and Andre Drummond.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) October 31, 2016
This is so unnecessarily long. Did I hear a Hassan Whiteside in there? I love the dude, but is he seriously an MVP candidate?
Magic’s got to be parodying himself now, right?
There were some amazing College Football games on Saturday. I watched Wisconsin's 23-17 OT win over Nebraska.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) October 31, 2016
Yeah, he’s totally self-aware. Has to be.
