Sports analyst Chris Broussard weighed in on the NBA MVP topic. According to him, despite LeBron James having a great season, Giannis Antetokounmpo is the clear winner between the two.
“LeBron’s been tremendous but it’s cut and dry. It’s Giannis. Giannis’ regular numbers points, field goals percentage are better. His analytical numbers are better. His PER only Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan and LeBron one have ever had a better PER than what Giannis is doing right now,” Broussard said on First Things First.
“It’s more than three points higher than anybody else in the league. He’s got the best record in the league for his team without a second superstar, nobody close to Anthony Davis. He could be the Defensive Player of the Year. He’s arguably the best defender in the league. So it’s Giannis.”
