We’ve got a new favorite for National Player of the Year around these parts, and the way can be read in the explanation below.

But the long and short of it is this: We’ve reached a point where it feels like Buddy Hield is the pick to win the award because, in the last six weeks, he hasn’t done anything to lose it. Which is true, but which also ignores just how good Denzel Valentine as been all season long.
