Surprise, neither Jokic nor LeBron! Find out who is the favorite for the NBA Cup Most Valuable Player Award
One of the innovations implemented during the current campaign was the National Basketball Association (NBA) Cup, where teams battle for a prize other than the traditional championship or otherwise known as the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
This innovation aroused excellent feelings from the audience, in addition to the bright colors of the teams’ stadiums that make this tournament even more attractive, but on this occasion we must talk about something intriguing.
The truth is that none of the league’s well-known stars are considered to be a contender for the MVP award, just a little-recognized figure with incredible talent, like Indiana Pacers player Tyrese Haliburton, who had an excellent run in the first edition of the NBA Cup. .
Currently, this player is averaging 23.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 11.6 assists per game. He is one of the best point guards of the current season and is helping his team achieve multiple wins.
Haliburton is followed in the race for the Best Player Award by Sacramento Kings player Domantas Sabonis, and in third place is Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, while Dominican Karl-Anthony Towns and Nikola come in fourth place. Jokic, the NBA Finals MVP, is ranked fifth in this competition.
