LeBron buwisit sa MVP botohan
ASAR si LeBron James sa resulta ng MVP balloting kung saan tinalo siya ni Giannis Antetokounmpo ng Milwaukee Bucks.
“It pissed me off. That’s my true answer,” sabi ng Lakers superstar matapos talunin ang Denver Nuggets sa Game 1 ng kanilang Western Conference Finals, 126-114 kahapon.
“It pissed me off because out of 101 votes, I got 16 first-place votes. That’s what pissed me off more than anything. Not saying the winner wasn’t deserving of the MVP, but that pissed me off.”
Pangalawa lang sa botohan ang 35-anyos na si James, ikaapat na pagkakataon ito na naranasan niyang mag-runner up lang sa pinakamataas na individual award.
“I finish second a lot in my career, either from a championship and now four times as an MVP,” aniya.
”I never came into this league saying, ‘Let me be an MVP or be a champion.’ I’ve always said I wanted to get better and better every single day and those things will take care of itself. Some things are just out of my hand. Some things you just can’t control, but it pissed me off.” (Ferdz Delos Santos)
