  1. I'm sick and tired of this Trae Young bullshit. This is purely americans backing their own country men and ignoring the stats and impact that Luka has had all year long, but yeah let's focus on this black guy and give him props instead. Reverse racism at its finest, I swear.

  2. It's not a fucking race for Christ sakes, Luka was more consistent and is trying his best to win, it's not his fault that the Mavericks are tanking for a shot at Zion(or a top 10 pick). He has better IQ and skills which are almost Lebron/Bird like( comparisons he rightfully earned). Young started balling recently. Consistency wins ROY for me.

  3. Luka is going to win it but Trae Young is an awesome player and people in Atlanta are extremely pleasently surprised at his emergence. The trade looks like it actually worked out on both fronts.

  4. I love how you can't not like Luka now without people crying out- "it's because he's European". No it's not, I don't like the look of his game. It's all the slowest and least entertaining parts of James Harden. -_-.

  5. IT IS DISGUSTING!!! IT IS NO EVEN CLOSE!! FUCK THEN ALL AMERICANSS. IT IS JUST THE HYPE MADE OUT FROM NOTHING!! SCREW YOU ALL!!! LUKA ROY IN EASY MODE!!!! EMBARRASING TO EVEN COMPARE!!!

  6. That just stupid. Luka is by far the greatest rookie. Young is not close to him. Young just throw 1000 3-point shots every game and it's true that he make some of them in the last month or two. But Luka play great all season and Maverics would be very close to the playoff if they wouldn't tanking since all star game.

  7. even hawks fans know luka is better than trae.
    if trae wins this one then lebron james has a chance to win the mvp too over harden and giannis! as simple as that
    open your eyes!

  8. Well I still got luke. Here is why luka has only played bad for 2 months and his numbers are still their. Trey is having the best run period, out of almost any player not including James harden 😂😂😂 . Luka only has 10 games left how bad can it get to match the horror that trey Young started out with 😒 jus saying. But I would like to add cap’n fat ass an that hoe ass woman had to say people don’t like luka cause he’s the red man is bullshit, trey has him on assist, defense, less turnover prone and scoring ON THE COURT. Luka gets to the line 3x the amount trey does, and shoots a lot more than him not to mention has ALOT better team out there in Dallas. Just my two cents P.S grant hill easily ran away with that rookie of the year j kidd even knows that the numbers wer night and day, and I’m a j kidd fan
