Stephen A Smith is the most straight-forward and brutally honest analyst television has ever seen, and he has proven it many times over that he fears no one when they say what they want. He recently made headlines when he received a text message from GOAT Michael Jordan himself. In the text, Michael Jordan revealed his pick for the 2021-22 NBA MVP Award. He was angry with Stephen A. Smith for having a different perspective and accepting the award. The regular season is drawing to a close and with the playoffs looming, the league will soon be announcing all the awards, but this year the curiosity for the MVP award is high. As it contains many names that compete closely for it.
The three most popular players for the award are Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic and Joel Embiid. However, Giannis Antetokounmpo is the most notable and deserving contender for the award as even Michael Jordan backed him to go home. Giannis Antetokounmpo is also in contention for the top scorer title this season. Right now he’s just behind Joel Embiid and LeBron James but has the best chance of getting his hands on it and becoming the only player other than Michael Jordan to win the MVP, DPOY, Finals MVP and a scoring title.
This season, Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 29.9 points, 11.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1 steal and 1.4 blocks per game. Currently, the Milwaukee Bucks are ranked as the third seed under his leadership while tied with the second seed for the record 49 wins 30 losses at .620. He really has nothing left to prove and now that Stephen A. Smith reveals the GOAT backing him, he’s the best player in the league.

Stephen A. Smith reveals Michael Jordan is supporting Giannis Antetokounmpo for the MVP award
Stephen A., sitting next to Magic Johnson and discussing the MVP award with the nominee who would like to take it home the most, quoted: “There is another Hall of Famer who is one of the greatest players to ever play this game. That has initials similar to yours (Magic Johnson). That wrote me yesterday [and] talked, I’m wrong. But be it with the first take. I mean, he just calls and insults me. But that’s okay, that’s okay, fine. We won’t, we remain nameless.”
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s chances of winning the award are pretty good. But the competition remains tight and nothing can be said just yet as it all depends on the Superstar’s performance and the votes he gets. But Michael Jordan backing him is certainly changing the minds of many voters as the GOAT can’t be wrong.
