Jaylen Brown voiced his disapproval of past MVP winners being awarded despite playing only half of the season. He emphasized the belief that recipients of any award should have a substantial presence throughout the season.

While suggesting that the current threshold of 65 games might be too stringent, Brown proposed considering a lower number, such as 58 games, for eligibility.

“I do believe that if you win any type of award, I think you should have to play a significant amount of the season. We’ve got guys who play half the season and win MVP,” Brown said.

“I’m not a big fan of that. But maybe 65 games might be a little too severe. Maybe they lessen it to 58 or something like that or something a little bit less.”
