In Topic: PSNOT 3.0 - The least worst thread on CAG anymore! But it still sucks.

09 May 2017 - 04:26 AM

I can see why the ending to ME3 was so divisive/annoying/disappointing, even without knowing/remembering exactly what happened. Bioware did a decent job of building up tension over the 3 games (or up to what I've played in 3, so far).

 

For my renegade playthrough, I think I'll have to go with default Shep. For whatever reason, my customized paragon Shep ended up with Melania Trump shaped eyes pushed out level with her brow, and when she doesn't look like Melania, she looks like Russell Westbrook with bugged out eyes. My renegade Shep had sharper, more angular facial features in ME1 and 2, not sure I'd be able to keep a straight face having to look at that face the whole game.

The MLB thread doesn't seem to be too active lately.

The whole site has undergone marked decline in activity over the last five years. Forum boards just aren't the most popular way to communicate with people over the internet, anymore.

Bruh, how'd you get that fight night plat? Did the people who hoarded the belts give up?

 

EDIT: Oh you did that a long ass time ago.

I helped a group of people boost in order to grab hold of the titles like 5 or 6 years ago. Then we passed the belts back and forth. Not sure if it can work the same way now (I think EA used to reset the belt holders after a period of time or something similar).

So who will be the mvp? Mr. Triple double, the one man crew from Houston or the all around guy from San Antonio

1. Harden

 

He's been as efficient as LeBron, even factoring in his stratospheric turnover rate. He's still bad defensively, but he's put up a token effort at times, and he's played the second most minutes in the NBA.

 

2. Kawhi

 

He's the best defensive player on the best defensive team in the NBA, and he's the most efficient and also the highest usage player on the 5th best offense in the NBA. He's the best player in the NBA for the regular season as of right now, but his volume is dwarfed by Harden. They will finish the season with a gap of near 600 minutes between them. Kawhi would need to turn in a peak LeBron or MJ season to overcome that amount of volume.

 

3. Russ

 

His triple double is inflated; he's averaging over a rebound per game on free throw misses, and the next nearest PG has fewer than 10 such rebounds. He also leads the NBA in uncontested rebounds. Additionally, his shooting numbers are horrendous (sans FT%).

 

However, he shows up on D. Oscar Robertson, in his triple double season, was on the court for about 115 possessions a game. Here are Westbrook's per 100 possession triple double stats:

44.4 PTS

14.8 REB

14.6 AST

 

The amount of volume evident in his season is hilarious, and deserves recognition. He's just not MVP.

 

4. LeBron

 

Take Kawhi's main flaw, and add high turnover rate (highest of career), poor FT shooting, and remove any semblance of defense. The most defense he plays is barking at his teammates for not covering his missed rotations. He did swallow Kawhi alive on a couple possessions late in one game, but that's a far cry from the D he played in previous MVP campaigns. If he were averaging 3 turnovers a game and 80% shooting from the free throw line, he'd win MVP in a landslide, even with the non-existent D. But he's not.

 

I love LeBron, he's the 3rd greatest player of all time right now, has a 7 year peak that is nearly indistinguishable from MJ's, and has a real chance to have a crazy peak and Kareem-like longevity. In essence, he might go down as the GOAT. But he's not MVP this season.

 

5. Pick one from Gobert, Giannis, or Butler
