    Not saying that Thomas will get MVP, but let's say he does. Has anyone ever won both in the same season?

    Thomas is solidly 3rd in a two-horse race for MVP. Almost any other year he would be in big time consideration but not this year. I can't find anyone who has won both in the same year. It is a relatively new award. The first year Curry won people said he should have been MIP as well though.

    Well, looks like there's just an even better baseline for the 2017-18 season!

    If he is traded this year, it might be the most improvement to the team this year.

    There's a little known award handed out every year that is called the most NOT improved player.

    Meyers is the clear frontrunner most years.

    I really do feel bad for the guy. If he was a malcontent or acted like it didn't bother him, or was yucking it up while sucking it up, he'd be my all-time most hated Blazer, but it's clear that he cares and wants to play well and he seems like a good enough teammate (at least what we get to see through the screen).

    But, fuck Neil Olshey for bidding against himself with this guy.

    I feel a little bad for Meyers. I comfort myself with the idea that he probably doesn't look at this forum, so Meyers Memes are just for fun. I wouldn't hurl abuse at the guy on Twitter or send a dead rat to his home.

    I miss the old days where big men actually played inside with power and owned the paint. Take away the 3 seconds in the key and put the hand checking back into the game please!

    Nah, keep the 3 second in the key and let them have a little movement. Just stick to 15' and under.

    Unfortunately, Meyers strikes me as the kind of guy who just might be insecure enough to actually read fan forums.

    I have thought that, if anyone does read us, it's Meyers. And what he reads here isn't helping.

    If so, I'd think he'd have been cured of that habit before now.

    Impossible. I specifically ordered him to watch Bill Walton film 4 years ago and he ignored me.
