Michael Jordan’s Unexpected Pick For 2022 NBA MVP

Michael Jordan’s Unexpected Pick For 2022 NBA MVP

With the NBA season wrapping up, talk is turning to the end-of-year awards.

One particularly popular point of conversation in recent days has been who should be awarded the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award in 2022.

Kevin Durant has weighed in on the debate with one opinion. His teammate, Kyrie Irving, has offered another.

This week, Michael Jordan seems to have waded into the complex conversation.

During a recent chat on ESPN’s First Take with Magic Johnson, Stephen A. Smith revealed that someone who sounded an awful lot like Jordan appears to have his own idea of who the MVP should be.

“There’s another Hall of Famer who is one of the greatest players to ever play this game, that has similar initial to yours,” Smith said.

“He texted me yesterday saying I’m wrong. He doesn’t come on First Take, he just calls and cusses me out, but that is okay. He don’t necessarily agree, he thinks of Giannis [Antetokounmpo] as the leader.”

Jordan is in most people’s eyes the greatest to ever play the game. Moreover, whether he is breaking down how you stop LeBron James, explaining why he’s the true GOAT or revealing the only athlete to ever intimidate him – he generally keeps it pretty real.

So if Jordan says that Antetokounmpo is his MVP pick, you know he is telling the truth.

Based on how things are trending, it seems unlikely that Antetokounmpo will get the nod this year. It will likely go to either Nikola Jokic or Joel Embiid.

That said, just having the GOAT mention you as the favorite has to be a huge honor in itself for Antetokounmpo.
