    Weird. Because I still don't believe he's the most valuable player on this team; much less the NBA.

    I’m bias so WB or Beard doesn’t matter to me.

    Will Barton? Doesn't he play for the Nuggets? o_O

    Or is that a reference to Carmelo Anthony's tat? I guess us ditching him made us able to move forward idk;)

    Giannis is going to win it because he's in a much weaker conference and because he has a good coach and teammates. Oh, and because the media and the casuals love him.

    More Harden disrespect from ESPN

    There is no other sane MVP voting top 3 finish other than Giannis, Lebron and Harden in some order.

    These 3 are the top 3 of just about every single meaningful metric this season.

    Westbrook would be leading candidate for MVP of the year 2020 though.

    James Harden conspicuously omitted from this list after besmirching the good name of Giannis Antetokounmpo. One guy averaged 33, 7, and 6 (Westbrook) and the other averaged 32, 6, and 8 (Harden) in the month of February. Not saying Russ doesn't deserve to be in the conversation because he has been amazing and I'm loving the way he is balling out, but the James Harden disrespect continues to be ridiculous. He could score 50 with 10 assists tonight and we'll get oh it's just the Knicks, but Greek Freak drops 41 on the lowly Hornets and Twitterverse explodes.

    It doesn’t matter. Giannis will win easily if he keeps up. He deserves it too. I just want the Rockets to collect W’s and cruise through the playoffs.

    Without a doubt. I can honestly say I think Giannis deserves the MVP this year, but last year James was robbed in my opinion. Being as unbiased as I can possibly be, that is how I feel. This year it is easily Greek Freak, but they criminally stole James's award last year by pushing narratives through the media and discounting James putting the whole franchise on his back and carrying this team from completely missing the playoffs with a decrepit, Darth Sidious, cloned version of Chris Paul on the team being cast as the second superstar.

    Chance:
    Giannis = 65%
    LeBron = 30%
    Harden + WB = 2%

    Reporters give the vote to 70 win team, they are not going to give the vote to 8th best team in the nba.

    I recall the Thunders standing was not that impressive when Westbrook won his MVP award. Hopefully he can repeat that again!
