Annoyed by the fact that only 16 journalists / analysts voted for him for the NBA MVP award of the season, LeBron James appeared after the end of the first Western final between the Lakers and the Nuggets.
The “King” expressed his irritation, but stressed that he does not question the… first of Giannis Antetokounbo.
“I got annoyed! This is the honest answer I have to give you. I was annoyed because I got the first 16 votes, this is what bothered me the most. I’m not saying the winner didn’t deserve the MVP title, but that irritated me. I finished second several times in my career, either in the league or in such polls.
Like I said, I didn’t come to the NBA as a champion all the time, I had to improve every day to do it. There are things I can not control, they are beyond my control. “But no matter how we do it, I’m annoyed,” said LeBron James.
