The mvp rn is Lebron..
He is playing like 32 min a game and they are destroying teams rn
Luka can put up all these crazy numbers, but still needs to be a top 2 seed
Lebron may win it off reputation and being robbed last year
Circumstances matter. Luka started the season without KP. Now the Mavs are missing 3 starters due to COVID protocols. If the Mavs manage to stay in the top 3-4 it could be enough for the MVP award.
LeBron is the best player in the world until proven otherwise in the playoffs but we all know that the MVP award is not always given to the best player.
How about these circumstances:
Lebron just beat the bucks and clips the final week of the season and was a beast
Giannis was hurt and was about to miss weeks with his ankle injury
Lebron was about to win the mvp but covid circumstances robbed him and then the bubble games didn't matter so there was no chance to even win it
Can't have a double standard now with covid, the results are the results
MVPs are always a top 2 seed besides Russ who had the historic triple double season since Oscar and had the narrative story since KD left
