WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW

Giannis and LeBron have both made compelling MVP cases this season.

James has averaged a tick over 25.5 points, 8 rebounds and 10 assists, while Antetokounmpo has put up 30/13/5 in just 30 minutes a night.

LeBron has been incredible, but you just can’t go past Giannis.

The Greek Freak is leading the league in points per minute, and he’s also 5th in rebounds per minute.

POINTS PER 36 MINUTES

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo – 34.8
  • James Harden – 33.6
  • Luka Doncic – 30.9
  • Bradley Beal – 30.5
  • Trae Young – 30.2

He has led the Bucks to the best record in the league, and did so without the help of an A-list superstar, with all due respect to the excellent Khris Middleton.

LeBron may well have the last laugh in the playoffs, but the MVP is a regular season award, and Giannis is about to win it for the second consecutive year.
