Damian Lillard Says LeBron James Should Be 2019-20 NBA MVP

When it comes to the MVP race between Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James this season, Damian Lillard says that LeBron is his choice.

While guesting on ESPN’s “Jalen & Jacoby” show, Dame cited the Lakers’ Western Conference-leading record and LeBron’s impressive stats as reasons why he’s picking The King.

LeBron reportedly vowed to “reclaim” his throne from Antetokounmpo this season.

“If you said either one, I feel like nobody would have a problem with it. But me personally, this season, I think it’s LeBron.

“They’re the No. 1 team in the West. They’ve been consistent all year long. For him to be at the age he’s at, with the amount of miles that he has on his body, how often he’s talked about, the pressure that they put on him in every little thing that he does, and the level that he’s performing at—I feel like he’s the MVP.”
