Damian Lillard appeared on “Jalen and Jacoby” earlier today, which airs on ESPN. He was asked who he thought made the best case for MVP. His answer was in fact LeBron James. He says because they are the number one team in the West and “for him to be at the age he’s at, with the amount of miles he has on his body, performing like that” he deserves it. He appears mind blow that LeBron hasn’t started declining like every other player in their 17th season. LeBron is averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, and a league-leading 10.9 assists per game this season.
