    I have been reading about and listening to all the debates of "Giannis or Harden MVP?"

    While Harden is definitely a scoring machine, Giannis has done so much more all around for the team on both offense, defense and just team chemistry.

    Call me a Homer....but no doubt in my mind Giannis deserves it more and I think will win it.

    It was interesting to hear Shaq claim that Giannis is better than he ever was.

    Harden is an amazing player and any other year . . .

    But, Giannis should be MVP.

    Giannis absolutely deserves it. If Harden won I wouldn't be outraged. Harden's had an unbelievable year, but Giannis has turned the Bucks into the best team in the NBA.

    I cant remember who it was, but one media guy said something like "we can't give the MVP to Giannis now, he is only 24, he may win the award for the next 10 years"

    Giannis is an All Star, no surprise there.

    Earning All-NBA for a second consecutive season now has Giannis Antetokounmpo eligible in the summer of 2020 to sign the largest contract in NBA history. The five-year extension starting in 2021-22 would be worth $247.3M and carry a $42.6, $46.0, $49.5, $52.9 and $56.3M cap hit.

    I wouldn’t accuse you of being a Homer when you’re right. Giannis has contributed in multiple areas, each game - scoring, rebounds, and assists. It’s impossible for the Bucks to be where they are without him. Sounds like an MVP to me. Harden is a worthy second, but there’s only one MVP.

    Gotta ask, anyone find any solace in the fact that the Bucks lost to the eventual Champions?

    Yeah, me neither. Not meaning to take anything away from Toronto, but after thoroughly defeating the Bucks, things sure fell into place for their rise to the top.

    I think more humbled and heartfelt. Love the guy when it comes to Professional Athletes, he has so many likable attributes.

    At just 24 years old, Antetokounmpo became the third-youngest player to win the MVP over the past 40 seasons, behind Derrick Rose and LeBron James.

    Love that the Bucks pulled the Hat trick too, coach Bud picked up Coach of the year and Jon Horst picked up Executive of the year.

    Me too. I hope we can keep this roster together and make another even deeper run in 2019/2020.
