Kendrick Perkins was very definitive in his pick.

Kendrick Perkins is someone who is known on television for being extremely vocal about his opinions. Overall, that is the name of the game, especially since he is a voice on platforms like First Take. In order to keep up with Stephen A. Smith, you have to remain engaging when speaking on the latest sports topics. Although Perkins can be disagreeable at times, he is certainly fun to listen to. You never know what he might say or claim about another player. Just look at how he talked about MVP candidate Nikola Jokic.

Speaking of the MVP, the race for the award is heating up as the last week of the NBA season is upon us. Jokic could become the first three-peat winner since Larry Bird. Moreover, guys like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid are also having MVP-worthy seasons. At this point, there are a ton of different players who could win it. However, it is all going to depend on the voters. Sometimes, NBA media can be spiteful in their decisions, and it leads to a winner who may or may not actually deserve it.

Kendrick Perkins Speaks

On the latest episode of First Take, Kendrick Perkins spoke about the MVP race and who he is looking to vote for. Overall, it seems as though Perkins has narrowed his decision down to one person. Of the three we mentioned previously, Perkina would rather vote for the guy with a title under his belt. "The best player in the league, on the best team, averaging a career-high in points, third in rebounding, Giannis is getting my vote for MVP," Perkins explained. Giannis Antetokounmpo is a great choice and it is certainly deserved. His season has been fantastic, although quiet. Sometimes, that is the perfect combination.

Kendrick Perkins' choice is definitely a valid one. Although it remains to be seen whether or not the rest of the voters will agree with him. Let us know if you think Perkins is valid for this take, in the comments section down below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more news and updates from around the sports world.
