LeBron James is the MVP. At least he should be. Frank Vogel has come out with an interesting story about an interaction he had with Giannis Antetokounmpo recently. The Los Angeles Lakers are the number 1 seed in the Western Conference. As a result, many people around the organization think that they should be the favorite to win the title this year. But as of late, the Lakers are not looking like a championship contender.
If they want to make it to the Finals this season, they are going to have to step up their play in a big way. So far, they have made easy work of the Portland Trailblazers and are now facing the Houston Rockets. As long as they play to the level that they are capable of, then they should be good to go.
This is not what we have seen, however. They need to get it together in order to take down James Harden and the Houston Rockets.
Frank Vogel Fetails ‘Awkward’ Moment with Giannis Antetokounmpo After Declaring LeBron James MVP
But that is not the most surprising thing we have seen thus far in the bubble. Recently, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel came out with a very interesting story regarding NBA MVP hopeful Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Apparently, Vogel saw Antetokounmpo right after he said that LeBron was the MVP this year. This resulted in a bit of an awkward meeting right after.
“I didn’t talk to him. I just walked past him,” Vogel said recently. “I had just told the world that Lebron is the MVP, so that was weird. The NBA can be awkward.”
LeBron has been an MVP hopeful for most of the season. But this year is a bit different. Both of these players have been an amazing part of the respective teams. I think we would have to give the nod to LeBron, though.
This is not the only bizarre interaction he has had either, apparently.
“Jimmy Butler asked me if I wanted to buy a cup of coffee from him the other day,” Vogel said after learning about his new coffee business. “I told him I would, but I didn’t follow through yet.”
Sounds like the NBA bubble is quite the interesting place to be. What do you think about what Vogel had to say? Do you agree that LeBron is the MVP?
