It’s that time of the year again. Now I know what you’re thinking, aren’t we only THREE games into this NBA season? Don’t we usually wait until at least 5 games to decide who’s playing unbelievable basketball? Well friends if I’ve learned one thing about Magic Johnson it’s that he plays by his own rules when it comes to detailed twitter analysis. So here we are, some guys have logged less than 100 minutes minutes played but we’re ready to break it down. Buckle up, because this year we only have SIXTEEN guys, so a very selective field indeed (Sorry Derrick Rose, you didn’t make the cut)

And there you have it, Magic Johnson’s annual first week MVP race preview. It’s detailed, it’s meticulous, and there is a strong sample size (3 games) of data. Also basically every guy that averages more than 20 points a night or has a pulse and a pair of sneakers is eligible. Can’t wait, should be a wild 16 player race all year long and I’m guaranteeing the winner comes from this group.

Oh and quick shout out to the Badgers, this tweet was brought to you by Siri.
