@True teller 'the only superstar who does not have another allstar', bet, so Wiggins is an allstar now lmao, you're pressing the decision I should only have Jokic and Embiid but giving me a level or reasoning that applies even better to Steph lmao

I completely agree it's close,but it's close between Embiid And Jokic for one and two. LeBron is far third. Here is some stats as per 100 ball possesion :- FG%- Jokic-56.4, Embiid- 53.6, Lebron- 50.2. 2P%- Jokic-60.7, Embiid-56.3, Lebron- 57.7. 3P%- Jokic-40.4, Embiid-39.7, LeBron- 36.2 . FT%- Jokic- 87.2, Embiid- 85.2, LeBron- 71. Rebounds- Jokic- 15.3, Embiid-16.4, LeBron- 11.5. Assist- Jokic- 11.7, Embiid- 4.5, Lebron- 11.1. Steals- Jokic- 2.3, Embiid- 1.9, Lebron- 1.4. Blocks- Jokic- 0.9, Embiid- 2, Lebron- 0.7. Points- Jokic- 36.5, Embiid- 44, Lebron-35.9. As Nick used to say,Stats Don't lie when LeBron was winning back to back MVP. What happened, are stats lying now??🤭😂

I think people dont realize how hard it is to beat lebron james in a 7 game series. If u watch podcasts of players in the league there are soo many people that say it. Demar derozan, draymond green, paul george, dame lillard, etc... i dont think anyone who actuallt looks at the game of basketball constructively without bias can deny that. He wins games and his stats are soo good that we are just numb to it at expect it. When it comes to winning time its always lebron

Why I would say Embiid stands a good chance to win MVP is his team will likely have more wins than LBJs with AD out. Plus, it's obvious, most times it goes the players way who hasn't won that award before over someone like James who's already won it multiple times.

@Michael Scofield Embid should be mvp, he has not only the stats, but his team in 1st place. Lakers arent even in 1st place, Utah is... Lakers also have 2 of the top 5 players in the NBA. Make a case Embid, Durant, Chris Paul, LBJ, Jokic, Curry....what makes LBJ the mvp?

@Darrell Hardy What “analyst” said that? Only one i recall saying that is Skip Bayless😂 The only reason people try to claim it’s an “asterisk” is because the Lakers won lmfao literally any other team would’ve won and no one would be saying that if you disagree than you’re a liar. Like that doesn’t even make any sense most analysts said the Clippers would win it all so why would they back track for the Lakers?😭 You’re just saying anything now tbh. Lowest watched on TV but you didn’t mention the all time high in streaming??
