Frank Vogel expressed his surprise on LeBron James getting more second-place votes in the MVP voting list.

“To me, he’s our MVP. But I understand how the voting goes,” Vogel said, per Mark Medina of USA Today.

The Lakers superstar received just 16 1st-place votes and 84 second-place votes to get just behind Giannis Antetokounmpo, who won the award for the second consecutive time.

James is definitely the MVP of the current Lakers’ squad along with Anthony Davis, who was also among the players that received votes in the MVP poll.
