This is the first time the MVP vote has had the same players in the same order finish 1-2 since LeBron James won consecutive MVPs in 2011-12 and 2012-13, with Kevin Durant finishing runner-up both times. Durant would win MVP the next season (2013-14) with LeBron the runner-up – 7:02 PM

LeBron James has received MVP votes in 19 different seasons.
That’s two more than Kareem and six more than MJ.
Just an FYI. – 6:59 PM

For all the talk of “voter fatigue,” we’ve now had SEVEN instances of a player winning back-to-back MVP in the last 21 years:
Jokic (2021, 2022), Giannis (2019, 2020), Curry (2015, 2106), LeBron (2012, 2013), LeBron (2009, 2010), Nash (2005, 2006) and Duncan (2002, 2003). – 6:51 PM

Nikola Jokic is the NBA MVP. He’s the 13th player to be MVP in consecutive seasons, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Stephen Curry, Tim Duncan, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Moses Malone, Steve Nash and Bill Russell. pic.twitter.com/JVDpcqGYFw – 6:38 PM

Two tweets about Kyrie Irving from a press conference and more than 25 responses mentioning or picturing Russell Westbrook for a trade. NBA Twitter still the best. – 4:35 PM

Luka Doncic last night:
✅ 28 PTS
✅ 11 REB
✅ 3 STL
Doncic is the fifth player in NBA history to average at least 30p/10r/5a through the first eight games of a postseason.
He joins Oscar Robertson (1963), Larry Bird (1985), Hakeem Olajuwon (1994), and LeBron James (2018). pic.twitter.com/MMNdxLSrcQ – 9:31 AM
