Let’s be real here — it’s only a matter of time before the Los Angeles Lakers win the 2020 NBA Finals.
With a 3-1 series lead over the Miami Heat, the Lakers are on the cusp of hoisting the 17th title in franchise history. With an opportunity to close out the series in Game 5 on Friday night, the question isn’t whether the Lakers will win this series — it’s more of a question of who deserves to win Finals MVP.
There are two legitimate candidates to win Finals MVP and that’s none other than LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Both players have put their imprints on this series, whether statistically or through game-changing plays late in games.
