Race looks over unless the season resumes and LeBron makes a large move while Giannis stumbles.

https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/257654/Media-Straw-Poll-Has-Giannis-Antetokounmpo-As-Overwhelming-Pick-For-MVP

Giannis Antetokounmpo remains the clear favorite to win MVP in a straw poll of 70 media members conducted by ESPN.

Antetokounmpo earned 60 of the 70 possible first place votes.

Before the NBA season was suspended, ESPN began pushing a narrative that James had closed the gap on the MVP race on Antetokounmpo despite the overwhelming case for the reigning MVP. Several media members on ESPN supported James' case by citing specious factors such as the passing of Kobe Bryant, his response to the China controversy and also his age.


There are 100 voters for MVP, I believe. So if Giannis already has 60 in his pocket, it's over (unless there is more regular season to be played).

just to clarify, it was a panel of random writers, not the actuall voters so:

In a survey of 70 media members who cover the league, Antetokounmpo was the clear leader in MVP balloting, earning 60 of the 70 possible first-place votes to open a commanding lead over James, who had an equally commanding lead over the rest of the field.

To make the balloting process realistic, ESPN sought to mimic the league's official voting process as closely as possible. Our MVP voting panel includes a mixture of local beat writers from across the league, as well as national and international reporters, just as the NBA's does at the conclusion of the regular season. And, to conform to the NBA's voting system, every first-place vote is worth 10 points, followed by seven for second place, five for third, three for fourth and one for fifth.

Most of the voters will vote for Giannis anyway. The only thing we don't know yet is by how much he gonna win it and to be honest i don't even care about this. Giannis will be back to back MVP. Case closed.

as for now youre right, but it is 70 to 30, can be 50 50 if rest of RS is played
people act like Lebron was playing terrific only for last couple weeks, which is not true

and dont forget that most missed games as MVP was Iverson with 11, and Bill Walton, Giannis missed a decent number of games

Giannis played in 57 games LeBron 60 before league was shutdown. Games played will have no factor on the vote. At this point it really don’t matter to me I wish the season would continue but it don’t look like it right now.

Lebron had a sliver of a chance if the Lakers ended up with the best record. As is, should be Giannis's easily
