Not sure him or KD played enough games for my liking.
I would’ve went Dame over Luka.
Dame vs Luka was the legit argument in the west, it looks like they officially tied in the voting and the tiebreaker was whoever ranked higher in the fan vote.
For Durant, he has missed 12 of the Nets 31 games. But who are you gonna put in his spot? The next highest ranked frontcourt player in the voting was Tatum; he's played 23 of the Celtics 28 games. So, he has missed some games as well, not as many, but also, as good as Tatum has been, Kevin Durant vs Jayson Tatum is not much of an argument to me.
Also, for whatever its worth, I am not going to be too worked up about missed games in this scenario when most of them are missed games for covid protocols.
