The COVID-19 outbreak resulted in the NBA postponing the awards ceremony. However, before they pushed it forward, the players who were contesting for the titled were LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo. The former is a member of the Los Angeles Lakers while the latter is a member of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Both players have taken their teams to the best points in the NBA and have won a lot of accolades. It is no surprise that the NBA decided to pit them against one another for the MVP Award.

Both players also hold some of the best records in the history of basketball and are still doing their best in the game. In conclusion, Antetokounmpo and James are terrific players who are now a force to be reckoned with in the industry.

One thing is for sure about these players, it really didn't matter who won it or who will win it, both players have worked really hard to stay afloat. James on one hand has won the MVP four times during his career and has broken a lot of records to say the least. Although he went off for a while, he came back strong with a new member known as Anthony Davis.

Antetokounmpo on the other hand has only baaged the MVP award once, but he has been an amazing player who scores an average point of 27.7 in every game. Before the pandemic began, Antetokounmpo really upped his game with an average of 29.6 point per game and 13.7 rebounds.

Recently, Paul Pierce had a lot to say about these players and he favored one against the other. Although the NBA did not get to disclose who will be rewarded with the MVP status, Pierce thinks that James concluded that James was not the best fit.

Pierce who named his top 5 best basketball player and excluded LeBron James' name, saying that the player was not good enough. Furthermore, he mentioned that the MVP award deserved to be given to Antetokounmpo and no one else.

This is really challenging because James is considered NBA's second-best player, after Michael Jordan. Fans are still wondering if Pierce has a personal vendetta against James in the past or present.

Fingers are still crossed as fans await the final result after the pandemic.
