Re-opening the Rookie of the Year race, and who were the most valuable players in February?

The NBA season is a marathon, not a sprint, and on a new episode of Fastbreak Breakfast we bring up some remarkable monthly achievements from February. Karl-Anthony Towns, Russell Westbrook, and Lauri Markkanen posted eye-popping statistics. The Most Valuable Player race intensified as Giannis Antetokounmpo, James Harden and Paul George all averaged over 30 points per game. And rookie Trae Young came roaring back in the Rookie of the Year race, becoming the first rookie since Allen Iverson to score over 35 points in consecutive games.

So fix yourself your favorite breakfast treat and dive into this gigantic episode reflecting on who had the best month and whether Young could actually steal ROY from Luka Doncic.

Also covered:

  • A live taste test: What is the best flavor of Girl Scout Cookie?
  • Is there a coherent argument to pick Russell Westbrook over Harden in the MVP race? We think it can be done!
  • How much will LeBron James’ legacy suffer if he fails to make the playoffs in his first season in the Western Conference? Is it blasphemous to suggest playing in the Eastern Conference has inflated his career achievements?
  • This is your missions if you choose to accept it: recast the Spice Girls using current NBA players.
