Bubble MVP, Booker or Lillard?
Now that eight seeding games have officially ended in the NBA bubble, the league has named Damian Lillard the most valuable player, MVP for pre- and post-season games. Many NBA fans believe that Devin Booker deserves this award.
The NBA reboot has a lot of players playing a key role and showing that they can really play at a high level. Players like TJ Warren, Michael Porter Jr. and Gary Trent Jr. have all improved a lot since March when the NBA shut down.
NBA All-Bubble Teams were also announced, and they were in the spotlight with Booker and Lillard leading the first team alongside James Harden, TJ Warren and Luka Doncic. The second team consisted of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard, Caris LeVert, Michael Porter Jr. and Kristaps Porzingis. These players are the best of the best in the bubble, recognized by the NBA.
Damian Lillard has surpassed previous performances and taken his play to the next level in the bubble, displaying his determination and grit, while making opposing teams unstoppable. he. Lillard led the Blazers to records of 6s and 2s in the bubble, wowing opposing teams when he lit up the field by scoring 154 points in his final three games. Lilliard finished eight seeded games averaging 37 points, four rebounds and 10 assists per game, shooting 50 percent long and 43 percent deep. The Trail Blazers will face a tough game in the first round against the Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James, but Portland could lead the series early if the Lakers don’t take them seriously.
Meanwhile, Devin Booker put on an incredible performance in the bubble, taking the Suns to their 8 and 0 records. However, after dominating the seeding matches, Booker will have nothing to show for, after only making it to the knockout stages briefly. Booker averaged 30 points per game, along with 5 bounces and 6 assists with a 50% shot rate. There’s no denying Booker’s incredible play, and a spot in the knockout stages may have helped Booker win the MVP award. Unfortunately for the Suns, they finished half the game against the Memphis Grizzlies for a spot in the game. This was a hugely disappointing end to the season as they were just one leap away from their first playoff in nine seasons.
Both of these players have provided fans with intense bouts to watch high-flying and deep-range bombardments, and in fact, both players have earned MVP awards. And while either would be a great choice, after all, Damian Lillard deserves the NBA Disney bubble MVP award just a little more than Devin Booker. While the award means nothing, it highlights that Damian Lillard has become a dominant player who can really play at the highest level. We’ll see if Lillard and his teammates can find the miracle they need to clinch four wins over the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the playoffs or will Lillard need to wait until next season. to show up. what he is capable of.
