James Harden has been on pace to win the MVP trophy but Damian Lillard is out here BALLIN for that award. The Blazers have the 5th best record in the NBA which no one on Planet Earth could have predicted.
It’s time we give Lillard the credit he deserves or he will run to Twitter to let us all know that he’s better than Lonzo Ball or something.
Here are 4 reasons why Damian Lillard deserves to win 2018 MVP Award:
1. Portland Trailblazers Success
As I write this, the Blazers are currently the 3rd seed in a STACKED Western Conference as they’ve won 8 games in a row. They are literally unstoppable right now and that’s all thanks to Lillard being an absolute monster and carrying Portland on his back.
Yes, the Houston Rockets have the best record in the NBA so giving the award to James Harden seems fair but life isn’t fair. The Rockets have a better team around Harden. Lillard is out playing next to Evan Turner and Shabazz Napier and he’s dragging them above super teams like the T-Wolves and the Thunder. M.V.P.
