"THE GREEK FREAK" Giannis Antetokounmpo was named the MVP in the NBA 2018/19 Season.
IMAGE SOURCE Giannis Antetokounmpo was named the MVP of the National League Player of the Year at the 2019 NBA awards ceremony at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California. Giannis Antetokounmpo rallied last month with three finalists along with Paul George (Oklahoma City Thunder) and James Harden (Houston Rockets). However, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Harden contested for the final prize because George was suffering from a shoulder injury and suffered a slump in February. VIDEO The glory of the award went to Giannis Antetokounmpo, who brought Milwaukee to the top of the NBA league in the league this season. Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored an average of 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.3 steals in 72 games this season, has played a huge role in both sides of the ball for the last three defenders of the year. IMAGE SOURCE Harden, who had an average of 36.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 7.5 assists and 2 steals in 78 games this season, was unfortunately not a regular league MVP winner for the second year running, Especially since October of last year, 32 times more than 30 consecutive games (32 games average 41.1 points per game) showed a tremendous performance, the average 8 times in the past regular season league average score was also recorded. Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks, won the Rookie of the Year award. Doncic, who has been nominated for the NBA All-Star Game in the NBA All-Rounds draft in Dallas, has played 72 games this year, averaging 21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game.
Paul George's Hypocritical Few Days
Paul George complaining about officiating is a bit ironic. He and Russel Westbrook get their fair share of superstar calls and phantom contact and ones. Paul George, of course, is the man who shot 20 free throws March 7 against Portland and delivered this elbow to Jusuf Nurkic’s jaw. It might not be a strike from Jon Jones, but in today’s NBA that was a flagrant foul, and at the very least an offensive foul. The following day Oklahoma City played The Los Angeles Clippers and lost 118-110. George, Westbrook, and Steven Adams all fouled out, and the Clippers shot 20 more free throws than the Thunder. I would argue that George and Westbrook do get this share of calls as a team since they shoot the third most free throws in the NBA with 25.9 and the teams ahead of them are the Philadelphia 76ers and the team they faced that is 28.8. Not only that but George is number eight getting 7.13 free throws per games as of Saturday morning March 3 and Westbrook is number 14 with 6.5 free throws per game. Against the Clippers, Oklahoma City shot 44 three-pointers, and the Clippers took 26. Los Angeles took it to the basket a lot more, and the Thunder consistently shot from behind the arc. The thing that I think makes this even more ridiculous is how athletic these two are and if you watch Westbrook he is so fast and athletic that he avoids contacting by hanging in the air longer than his defenders do and over the last 40 games or, so George has been shooting and scoring at an MVP rate. However, George is angry and hurt. I just thought it was such a ridiculous outrage after the game against the Blazers that someone needed to call PG-13’s bluff. So Paul have a Snickers you aren’t yourself.
