Damon Jones Goes on Heated Tirade After LeBron James Gets Crushed in MVP Voting

1 Min Read

On Friday, Giannis Antetokounmpo was named the NBA’s regular season MVP for the second season in as many years.

Although former Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was considered to be just behind Antetokounmpo for the award, James fell way short in the actual balloting.

His former Cavs teammate, Damon James, had some words for those who voted for the Greek Freak.

Coming into this season, James was considered to be somewhat washed up by some, as he was about to turn 35 years old and had suffered the first significant injury of his career the year before.

Instead of James proving those doubters right this season, the three-time champ seemed ageless as he put up 25.3 points and 10.2 assists per game, leading the NBA in the latter category.

Since the postseason began, it has seemed clear who the best player in the game is when it really matters.

While Antetokounmpo’s squad went down in brutal fashion against the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs, James’ Los Angeles Lakers are now just seven wins away from a championship.
