Don’t do a lot of 🔥🔥🔥 takes on here and recognize Ja Morant moved from star to superstar this year. But No. 2 overall picks shouldn’t win MIP IMO.
My ballot: Murray, Bane, Poole.
Carry on. pic.twitter.com/9oLvsj3mpW6:42 PM

Matt Williams @StatsWilliams
Ja Morant averaged 16.6 paint points this season, the most in the NBA.
Over the last 25 years, the only other players to average that many paint points in a season are:
Shaquille O’Neal
Giannis Antetokounmpo
