    Windhorst is the worst. He’s the type of nerd that gets his rocks off from mocking jocks because he lacked the ability/desire to participate in contact sports as an adolescent. Give Paul a break. He struggles to articulate his point and what does Windy do? He goes for the jugular 🤦🏽‍♂️. Windhorst thinks he’s smarter than he actually is. He had a lucky break with knowing LeBron and he thinks that gives him the right to condescend. Smdh

    The mistake in thinking on Paul's side is that he is comparing individual contributions and abilities of the players. However, basketball is the TEAM GAME. Harden or James would probably beat Luka in one on one, but that is not the point. The point is that Luka is giving structure to his team. Watch the game Mavs are playing with Luka on court or when Luka is resting. You can't compare it. Luka makes everyone perform better, the whole team has the structure and attacks are paced and executed with obvious strategy. When he is out Mavericks are just run and gun team with no structure with every player doing his own thing. That is NOT what basketball is all about. That is why I believe he is probably the best player in the league at the moment.

    Comment section filled with followers. Rachel and Paul Pierce are right on the money. Brian is wrong. It's not literally talking about best season, they're talking about best player. You can have the best season without being the best player. And yes it says "Right now", but that still equates to best player and not best season. It's either LeBron, KD, or Giannis, shoot u can sort of argue harden in a sense.

    I don't think he's the best player in the NBA right now, but the key word is "arguably". If you want to say it's, oh, I dunno, Kyrie Irving or LaMarcus Aldridge, then I'm not going to argue with you because in that case you're just being silly. But anyone who wants to say Luka... well, yeah, I'll argue with you because you actually HAVE an argument.
