The NBA has announced that the seeding games played in Orlando will not represent any awards competition. The prizes will be determined exclusively by the games of the original season, to give all players a good opportunity. So predictions have started to come and the last to do is the NBA on the TNT crew. LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo are the two favorites, but the votes are no longer divided.
On the panel was Dwyane Wade. He is James’ best friend, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he gave a partial answer. Wade was slightly diplomatic, but gave a strong response. He started by talking about how it is the first time that his vote is seen by the public.
“As a player, choose your MVP and nobody knows what you said. Today is the first day I’m really in the media because people are listening to my choice. For me Giannis has returned this season as MVP in charge, he has done nothing to lose him. LeBron was catching him, he was really catching on before the season ended. “
Dwyane Wade believes that LeBron is the best otherwise
Wade said that if it weren’t for the break, the latest games would have been an important factor in deciding the MVP. “I felt that the last 20 games would really determine who the MVP would be. We didn’t have it, Giannis didn’t lose MVP, I felt he was the first place. But LeBron is the best player in the game right now and what he’s doing in his 17th year. If there was a prize for that, he will get that prize. But overall Giannis has been the MVP throughout the season. “
Giannis Antetokounmpo could be the twelfth player to win back-to-back MVP. He followed last year’s performance with an even better season, so it’s hard to discredit him.
LeBron was nothing short of excellent, leading the Lakers to the top in a strong western conference. But LeBron still had Anthony Davis by his side. On the other hand, Giannis had Khris Middleton, who, without respect for him, is still not comparable to Davis’ level.
It seems that Giannis has the majority vote. So it’s really his prize to lose now.
