Shannon Sharpe's choice of best player in the NBA may not align with the MVP voting.

Shannon Sharpe doesn't hold back his thoughts. Which is what makes him can't miss television. On Friday's episode of Undisputed, Sharpe and co-host Skip Bayless discussed the NBA MVP race. The MVP award should go to the best player in the league. However, Sharpe doesn't believe that distinction goes to Nikola Jokic or Joel Embiid. But that the best player in the league is none other than Giannis Antetokounmpo. Sharpe's choice isn't as extreme as some might think.

The Greek Freak is one of the greatest players in the league. That isn't an opinion but a fact. However, it seems that the Bucks star is taking a back seat in most MVP discussions. But Sharpe doesn't care who the MVP winner is. The NFL legend doesn't believe there's anyone greater than Giannis in the NBA. The former MVP has had a dominating season. His numbers would even have you believe that he could be a frontrunner for the award again this season.

Shannon Sharpe Is On The Giannis Bandwagon

Giannis' numbers this season are far and away better than his career average. The Milwaukee star is averaging 31 points and nearly twelve rebounds per game. Giannis has averaged over 20 points per game every season since 2016-17. The Bucks sensation also led his team to an NBA championship back in 2021. A feat that many didn't believe was possible without the Bucks adding another star to their roster. Giannis has built his career the hard way. While also in a market that wasn't much of a desirable location before his arrival.

Shannon Sharpe doesn't care about any NBA player rankings. The television personality knows greatness when he sees it. The league is in a great place when it comes to talent. Jokic, Embiid, and Giannis are all great stars and role models to the younger audience. All three stars will have a massive say in who will be crowned NBA champion this season. As all three of their teams are proven threats toward the crown. Who do you believe is the best player in the NBA? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
