The race for the 2019 NBA MVP is heating up as we wind down the regular season. Most are making their choice between Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo.
A realistic case can be made for either player, with Antetokounmpo on the more successful team but Harden leading the way by scoring more than 36 points per game.
So who does P.J. Tucker believe is the MVP? Obviously it has to be Harden, and the two walked into the arena on Tuesday night wearing some special duds to make that opinion known.
After the game (a Bucks win, but more because of Eric Bledsoe than Antetokounmpo), Milwaukee Twitter had fun with Photoshop and Tucker’s outfit.
Antetokounmpo is the cooler choice for MVP this season, with a better story and a more successful team. But Harden has a shot at this thing, especially as the projected scoring champion and former MVP.
I think the real MVP is actually that crazy serape thing Tucker is wearing. I need to know how to get my hands on that.
