NBA: Milwaukee Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo 2022 MVP?

Based on traditional stats, pretty comparable numbers, right? Now let’s look at their defensive numbers ● Nikola Jokic: 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks, 107.9 defensive rating, 0.115 defensive win shares, per NBA ● Joel Embiid: 1.4 steals, 1.1 blocks, 107.3 defensive rating, 0.121 defensive win shares, per NBA ● Giannis Antetokounmpo: 1.4 steals, 1.1 blocks, 107.7 defensive rating 0.118 defensive win shares, per NBA Again, compatible stats. Having said that, the eye test on the defensive end favors Giannis. As much as Jokic has improved as a defender and as good as a rim protector as Embiid is, Giannis is one of the best defenders the NBA has ever seen. With his length, strength, and athleticism, Giannis can guard every position on the floor and do it at an elite level which can’t be said of either Jokic or Embiid.
