‘Tatum vs. Giannis’ ESPN’s Preview MVP Vote, where is Doncic-Curry?

Tatum and Antetokounmpo were chosen as strong regular season MVP candidates.

‘ESPN’ released the results of the 2022-2023 season MVP mock voting conducted for local reporters on the 16th (hereinafter Korean time). The total number of participants is 100.

The name of the trophy awarded to the NBA regular season MVP this season has been changed to the ‘Michael Jordan Trophy’. It is a tribute to Michael Jordan, one of the greatest players in NBA history.

‘According to ESPN’s findings, at this point, the closest player to the first Michael Jordan Trophy is Jayson Tatum. Tatum, who received 47 first place votes and 37 second place votes, took the lead with a total of 759 points.

Tatum, the new green heart, is having a career-high season averaging 30.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 4.1 assists this season. Boston, with Tatum at the forefront, is running first in the entire league with his hot offense.  토토사이트

Giannis Antetokounmpo (687 points) ranked second, in fierce competition with Tatum. Antetokounmpo, who is leading Milwaukee’s cruise, is averaging 30.6 points, 11.1 rebounds and 5.3 assists. 

In the case of Luka Doncic (392 points) in third place, although his individual performance is excellent, it is a case of regret because of his team performance. Doncic averaged 33.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 8.7 assists and a field goal rate of 49.6%, showing an upward curve in both volume and efficiency. Dallas’ rebound is essential for Doncic’s first MVP in his life.

Stephen Curry (250 points), who is performing better than last season with an average of 30.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists, is in fourth place. Curry is also in a situation where his team performance (10th in the West) is not following his personal record.

Nikola Jokic (195 points), who is challenging the MVP three-fit, took 5th place. Compared to last season, his points and rebounds slightly decreased, but his assists increased significantly. The possibility of him winning the MVP again this season cannot be ruled out.

Others followed: Ja Morant, Kevin Durant, Zion Williamson, Devin Booker and Joel Embiid. As less than half of the season has passed yet, there is a good chance that the voting ranking will fluctuate.
