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.

I don’t think he’s disqualified but there will def be some voter fatigue against him. He’s my favorite to win DPOY next season tho
Hes going to win it. Voter fatigue is overblown. Bron won 4/5.
He should’ve got it this season They maybe give him 1-2 more
Yes, Giannis could absolutely win MVP next season.
No. Since he won especially with 50. Its on him if he calls over the rest hell get it
[Dont mark shitposts as serious]
He’s guaranteed to win it. He didn’t get votes because people didn’t think he could perform in the playoffs and now he shut them all up.
No this ring made it better because now theres no narrative against him. Hes probably going to win it next season. Like I legitimately cant see who will beat him for it. KD - doubtful with Kyrie and Harden on the same team. Steph - Team isnt good enough
