Giannis Antetokounmpo, LeBron James, James Harden, NBA MVP

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Friday morning that Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo would be named the 2019-20 NBA MVP, and the league has officially made the announcement and released voting results.

Antetokounmpo received 85 first-place votes to just 16 for Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. The third finalist, Houston Rockets star James Harden, didn’t receive any first-place votes.

Here are the full results:

With this repeat victory, Giannis Antetokounmpo is now the third player in NBA history to win MVP and Defensive Player of the Year in the same season. Hall of Famers Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon are the other two.

The Bucks star may have disappointed in the playoffs, but there’s no denying just how dominant was in the regular season. Antetokounmpo averaged 29.5 points, 13.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists in 30.4 minutes per game. He shot 55.3% overall and 30.4% on 3-pointers. He led the Bucks to a league-best 56-17 record in the regular season.
