Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is certainly drinking the LeBron James Kool-Aid. He made it clear that he thinks that James should take home another MVP award after helping the Los Angeles Lakers climb to the top of the Western Conference in the currently halted 2019-20 season. Dame Dolla must be conveniently forgetting about the excellent season put forth by Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, however.

In most seasons, averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, and an NBA-best 10.6 assists per game would be enough to take home an MVP, but Giannis is putting together a campaign that is somehow even more impressive than his MVP season one year ago.

The Greek Freak is averaging 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game, all of which are greater than his totals from last year's MVP run. Giannis has made the Bucks the best offensive team in the league and the fifth-best defensive team in basketball, a tremendous feat no matter how you slice it.

Giannis' numbers are almost identical to that of Shaquille O'Neal when he was one vote away from being named unanimous MVP in 2000. Adding to all of that the fact that he's doing all of this on the best team in the league with a 53-12 record as of this time, and there's your argument for Giannis as MVP.

Lillard is not the only one who thinks that LeBron is worthy of an MVP -- he's had some kind of case for the award in basically every single season since 2005 -- but the numbers show that the award should once again be handed out to the Greek Freak. Whenever the season resumes, he'll continue to prove he deserves it.
