MyBB Cacok Adds Another National Title
Devontae Cacok is a national statistical champion in NCAA Division I men's basketball for the second year in a row.

Cacok has topped all NCAA-I players in rebounding.

It marks the only the fourth time in NCAA history that an NCAA Division I player has finished first in separate statistical categories in back-to-back years. Jason Kidd (California), Shaquille O'Neal (LSU) and Stephen Sir (Northern Arizona) are the only other players to achieve the feat.

That's a great group of players to be associated with. I can't wait to see the results of his further development next November.

It is obvious that everyone outside of the CAA knows how good he is! Too bad he has been overlooked by the CAA all year.

Perhaps it's like the NBA, when the voters got tired of giving Michael Jordan and LeBron James the MVP every year, so they give it to someone less deserving. You could make a very legitimate case Jordan and LeBron deserve the NBA every single season, yet Jordan "only" won 5 MVP awards, and LeBron "only" has 4. Jordan probably should have had 7 or 8 MVP's, and LeBron should probably have 6 or 7. People get so used to a guy dominating at a certain level, and start to take it for granted.

Cacok racking up 20 boards in a game is amazing for a 6-7 guy, yet people kind of shrug that off at this point, because he ALWAYS seems to do that. What can he possibly do to stand out more when that becomes the "new normal"? Hit some 3's, get 10 assists, and 8 blocks?

In '93, the NBA gave Charles Barkley the MVP over Jordan. Jordan used that as motivation in the finals that year against Barkley's Suns, and destroyed them, to the tune of 41 points per game.

Maybe Cacok will similarly use the disrespect as motivation for his senior season?

Good for him. He's a hero at UNCW and you don't get to be a hero everyday. I hope that he stays healthy and shows his game off a bit more. He deserves a roster spot somewhere so it will be cool to follow. He should just go out and play his game but work on his perimeter game too to get it solid. It will work out for him with a team.

RE: Cacok Adds Another National Title
NBA MVP is a regular season award. The votes are sent in before the playoffs start. In 2016, the defending champion Warriors were 73-9, which is the best regular season record. Steph Curry was voted MVP.

LeBron learned he could coast in the regular season in the East because he could step it up in the playoffs and overcome another team having the home court advantage. That only worked 25% of the time against the Warriors, though.

In hindsight, no one should have been MVP from '91-'93 and '96-'98 other than Jordan. Often, a great team has 2-3 great players and that hurts those players' MVP chances. Durant probably should have been MVP this season.

Conversation for another thread, (** i'm not a Lebaby fan at all**) He 100% was the MVP last year and it's not close!
