That was fun.

I think some of those percentages for Howard are low because they haven't seen him play since April. Just watch with this team... He's going to look even better defensively because we're a better team defensively than his last one.

Considering there are twenty something GM's, it looks like Durant got two more votes than Kobe this year.

There's 30 teams... shouldn't there be 30 GMs? :man3:

edit: 46.7% of 30 is 14. 40% of 30 is 12. 6.7% of 30 is 2.

Durant- 14
Kobe- 12
Anthony- 2
Other- 2

GMs weren't allowed to vote for their own players/teams/coaches..
For example Mitch probably picked Bynum as the best big man in the league.

I added large font for the Highest IQ player there. It's Nash.

Also, we've learned that KD is more athletic then Dwight. Alright.

Some of those picks seem like they're base on rep.

And Melo should be #2 for Which player is best at getting their own shot?

Durant gets most of his shots off screens. He's not a better ISO player than Melo or LeBron.

Lmao @ Carmelo #3 in MVP voting.

I'm pretty sure no GM actually takes part in any of this, they just hand the ballots off to some assistant or something

Interesting, but to me it's flat out ridiculous that they think the Lakers only have less than a 25 percent chance of winning the championship. I think it should be like this.

Miami Heat - 33.3 percent chance
Los Angeles Lakers - 33.3 percent chance
OKC Thunder - 25 percent chance
Other - 8.4 percent chance.

Maybe by leading the league in flops? Or being the flopping instructor for the clippers?

metta and Kobe def toughest guys in the league. metta bc you def wouldn't wanna f with him. but also both guys play through injuries that would bench every other payer without saying or complaining a word. Kobe we've seen all through his career. but metta had back nerve etc injuries for a few years and still played elite D without anyone even knowing he was injured. popped his dislocated finger back in on his shooting hand and finishe the game!

Nash with highest IQ and kobe top no one can argue
