Serious Will the voter fatigue that virtually disqualified Giannis Antetokounmpo from legitimate MVP consideration carry over next season

Giannis Antetokounmpo put up equal or better numbers this season than he did during his two MVP seasons, but many argued his post-season track record disqualified him from winning MVP. Essentially arguing "He flames out in the playoffs year after year, how can a guy like that be MVP?" Not to take anything away from Nikola Jokic because he was undoubtedly the MVP this season, but there were guys like LeBron James and Joel Embiid who many media voters were arguing on behalf of who were putting up worser numbers than Giannis Antetokounmpo. LeBron James, in fact, had a far worser team record *and* worser stats, but that didnt stop people from voting for him over Giannis. Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers did have a better record than the Bucks, but Embiid missed significant time and, despite that, still received more votes than Giannis Antetokounmpo for MVP.
