We will revisit this in a couple weeks.

Jokers record might exclude him.

Joel has played 3 more games than Ja who you say didn’t play enough games. And now he’s finishing out the season with another MVP caliber guy.

I don’t see why Booker isn’t in the mix leading that team to the best record in the league.
Denver lost a lot of games with Joker and he wasn't always the best performer in those losses, so you can always use that his team is depleted when the opposing team's star/player out performed him.

True, but the narrative is out there whether it’s fair or not. If it’s used against other players when it comes to MVP, then it has to be used with Ja. That’s just how it works.
If Ja wasn't on the team, those players wouldn't be there. How can successfully building a team around Ja be used against Ja if he the reason for the depth and chemistry.

I never realized he missed 17 games this year, I guess it was because they were still winning. :ehh:
Somebody show this to Bulls fans because them nikkas been crying all 2022 with excuses saying the reason they been losing is because of injuries
Or you could say this is why his season shouldn't be compared to those Rose led Bulls teams prior to his injury. Rose only missed one game his MVP season, but the year after he played 39 of 66 games. Bulls were 32-7 with Rose that year and 18-9 without.

What’s Rose got to do with the Bulls 2021-22 team?

I’m obviously not referring to this year’s team, but a lot of people like to discredit Rose’s MVP and retroactively saying LeBron got robbed. Rose was literally carrying those Bulls teams to the best record in the NBA.

My point is how can Ja be MVP if his team plays so well without him?
