    I hope Lebron wins it. That way Bucks fans can feel how it felt last season with BS media narrative.

    That only happens because Anthony Davis is willing to sacrifice his left nut for LeBron. He won't take any credit for the Laker's success if that means hurting LeBron. He's the perfect sidekick for a super narcissist like LeBron.

    I get that, but .... it's right there. It's not like you can hide it. It's like people see somebody drop a bomb next to your house and everybody ignores it because nobody told them a bomb was just dropped next to your house. I think Davis is ahead of Lebron in every major statistical category other than assists.

    It's all about the narrative and AD's willingness to go along with it.

    If he had any self-respect, he would say something or at least get his people to get in the ear of some TV sports personalities to advocate for him. Kobe had people like that. That's why Kobe vs Shaq was an argument back in the day. Had Kobe been a fanatic of Shaq and never said anything or have other people speak for him, Shaq would have won 3 straight MVPs.

    Weaker conf: Giannis
    Pumps his stats vs garbage teams: Giannis
    Got owned by both Lebron and Kawhi: Giannis
    No skill: Giannis


    It makes me sick Giannis plays against garbage teams 75% of the time and then gets called the MVP due to inflated stats smh.

    lol, more like Davis has no credible case over Lebron to begin with and is clearly the 2nd fiddle despite whatever his numbers are

    please check how well the Lakers do when AD is off the floor, and then compare that to when Bron is off

    So was Kobe. Didn't stop him from advocating for himself and no doubt getting sports pundits to do the same for him. Had Kobe bowed down to Shaq like Davis does to LeBron, Shaq would have more than one MVP.

    The LeBron system is designed to function only with him. It falls apart without him and he likes it like that. It is amazing that he has won championships like that. Only player ever to do that. Everyone else from Oscar Robertson to young Jordan to McGrady to Westbrook etc. failed.
