Best player on a 60 win team for the first time his career this year!
If he stays with the Celtics, there will be more.
I think we're going to hear a lot of Kyrie's name in the MVP discussions this year.
I have my doubts - but I can see a pathway to it. Voters are likely to consider the top scorer on a 60+ win team to be 'in the discussion'.
The knee has to hold up...
He won't be the best player on the Celtics, though.
We don't need him to be the best player, we want to be the best team.
Teams win chips, players just win accolades.
Mike was the best player in the league '88-'90 and it didn't mean anything regarding the rings.
RW was the MVP 2 years ago and they lasted 5 playoff games.
Give me the best team (coaches, starters, bench) and I won't ask for anything more.
Kyrie can be the 35th player then.
