Mailbag: Russell Westbrook's MVP bid, Bucks' trader remorse and more
Chris Mannix takes on your NBA questions during this week's round of the Twitter mailbag...
- Which East teams will grab the last two playoff spots? Brooklyn is in the driver's seat because they have the most favorable schedule. Who else has a leg up on the field?
- Should the Bucks have kept Brandon Knight? Is Knight worth a possible trip to the second round of the playoffs to later lose him in the offseason? Michael Carter-Williams could have a higher ceiling long-term.
- Will the Bulls trade Doug McDermott next season? Will a frontcourt logjam force Chicago's hand and deal the sweet-shooting forward?
- Would Russell Westbrook be the first NBA MVP on a low-seeded team? Westbrook is undeniably the second-half MVP. Has he done enough on the season to edge Stephen Curry and James Harden?
