What is your definition of best player? If you don’t think it’s close I’d question if you’ve ever looked at what Loyer has done not just last year but this year. DD won the one head to head matchup in December, but if we look at other common matchups.
EEVP W 80 to 71 Clarkston (Neutral Site)
EEVP L 86 to 72 Hazel Park (N)
EEVP W 62 to 53 Pershing (H)
EEVP W 68 to 65 Pershing (A)
Clarkston W 84 to 50 Pershing (N)
Clarkston W 70 to 39 Hazel Park (A)
Don’t you think if DD was clearly the best and if it wasn’t even close of a race that DD and his team would be head and shoulders better, and shouldn’t they be winning PSL titles with him? I think it’s disingenuous to say it isn’t even close. And while I know DD numbers are likely quite good, Loyer’s are going to be on par or better. As BP has said, it should be a close race between Loyer, DD and Johns and for good reason, they’re all very good players. Any argument that the team success shouldn’t play a role I really question, as I think it’s pretty rare that the best players don’t win games, especially when EEVP had a Mr. Basketball candidate last year as well. The best players in the NBA are typically on the best teams, the best players in college are typically on the best teams, the best players in HS
