Still try to justify that LeBron should win when Giannis stats are ay better on both sides of the ball. And the thing people are missing is Giannis is not even close to his average for free throws this year if he was his stats would be unreal.
I wont debate Giannis is more deserving of MVP but are stats really saying he is a better offensive player (certainly not way better)? Lakers have a better offensive rating, Lebrons offensive rating is higher, Lebrons points generated by assists is larger than the difference in scoring, offensive win shares favour lebron but ORPM favours Giannis.
Lakers might have a better offensive rating but the bucks score the most points and have the best point differential of anyone by far. Best record and so on Lebron is having a great season no doubt I just think Giannis season is just better and when his free throws go back to his normal 70’s percent next season and beyond he will be even better think about that. Plus his defense also just gets better.
