Giannis Antetokounmpo Wins 2019 NBA MVP over James Harden and Paul George

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was named the NBA's MVP on Monday, edging out Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City Thunder wing Paul George in a tight race.

Antetokounmpo received 78 first-place votes, while James Harden collected 23. No other player received a vote for first place.

Antetokounmpo was superb in the 2018-19 season, finishing third in the NBA in points (27.7), sixth in rebounding (12.5), 21st in assists (5.9), 10th in blocks (1.5) and first in player efficiency rating (30.95).

He was a force on both ends of the court, leading Milwaukee to an NBA-best 60-22 record this season. And the scary thing for the rest of the NBA is that the 24-year-old Antetokounmpo is only going to get better.
