Damian Lillard Thinks LeBron James Is 2019-20 NBA Most Valuable Player

Damian Lillard believes LeBron James should win the 2019-20 NBA Most Valuable Player award over Giannis Antetokounmpo now on ESPN’s Jalen and Jacoby.

According to Lillard, James has led the Los Angeles Lakers to the best record in the Western Conference and is still playing at a high level in his 17th NBA season.

“This season I think it’s LeBron,” Lillard said on ESPN’s Jalen & Jacoby. “They’re the No. 1 team in the west, they’ve been consistent all year long, and for him to be at the age he’s at with the amount of miles that he has on his body, how often he’s talked about the pressure that they’ve put on him in every little thing that he does.
