The battle for the NBA MVP award was heating up before NBA chairman Adam Silver made the decision to suspend the league due to the coronavirus outbreak earlier this month. Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James were the two frontrunners for the award before the league was suspended. However, things could be different next season as both players could be playing for the LA Lakers.
In a recent Instagram live video, Giannis Antetokounmpo's girlfriend Mariah Danae confessed that she was a Lakers fan while growing up as a kid. LeBron James and Anthony Davis have been in prime form as they helped Lakers to the top of the Western Conference before the league was officially suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. Earlier, LeBron James led the Lakers past Giannis Antetokounmpo's Milwaukee Bucks. NBA fans and experts claim that the race for the NBA MVP award is over with LeBron James in pole position to bag the award by a huge majority.
