Giannis Antetokounmpo has been in a great form the whole campaign, as a latest survey shows and before the coronavirus break, LeBron James was making a steady push for Most Valuable Player consideration, playing catch-up to the reigning MVP.
“In a survey of 70 media members who cover the league, Antetokounmpo was the clear leader in MVP balloting, earning 60 of the 70 possible first-place votes to open a commanding lead over James, who had an equally commanding lead over the rest of the field,” quoted by ESPN’s Tim Bontemps.
ESPN simulated the standard voting process for this award, throwing in a mixture of local beat writers from across the league, as well as national and international reporters. Every first-place vote counted for 10 points, seven for second place, five for third, three for fourth and one for fifth, much like the NBA’s voting system.
These are the results:
As shown, this was a clean victory for the Milwaukee star, who ran away with a 670-to-514 victory over James.
