MVP voters list proves existence of NBA Deep State, anti-76ers conspiracy
Any sane Sixers fan has known that the NBA Deep State has conspired against the Sixers since Adam Silver was installed as
General Secretary Commissioner of the league. Joel Embiid’s MVP candidacy is the latest subject of sabotage.
However, while we initially only had circumstantial evidence of bias, the list of MVP voters is the final piece of the puzzle. Upon quick examination, it’s clear the deck was stacked against Embiid from the beginning.
Just look at who gets an MVP vote:
I have two issues with who gets a vote, but I’m starting with the one that the league can actually fix somehow.
Why do “journalists” from Chinese-owned Tencent get a vote? I understand China has millions and millions of basketball fans, but the idea they’re free to make their own vote is laughable.
For starters, fans in China can’t watch Sixers games because of Daryl Morey’s controversial tweet about Hong Kong. And who streams the NBA games in China? That’s right, Tencent.
Simply put, there’s no way in hell either of those reporters would have voted for Joel Embiid for MVP. Even if he averaged Wilt-like numbers, they literally would not have seen a game.
How is that allowed? I think international fans must have their voices heard, but when the media is owned by the government, and there are legal penalties associated with watching a particular team, I don’t see how that’s right.
Will the NBA do anything about it? Absolutely not. The market in China is too big to piss off anybody, so Silver’s puppet regime will sit silent.
My second issue with who gets an MVP vote is that most media people on this list have an inherent bias: They, like Jokić, are dumpy-looking white guys. I’m in the same boat.
It’s what I like to call The Larry Bird effect. Jokić is this generation of sportswriters’ “Great White Hope.” They see themselves in him. His success is their success.
Once Jokić falls off, Embiid will get shafted by a voter base enamored with Luka Doncić because they have the same body fat percentage. Of course, they could never be Embiid, but in their mind, they could’ve been an NBA player if they were a little taller and worked a little harder.
