Tatum expressed his belief that LeBron James is the clear top player in the NBA followed by Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets and Kawhi Leonard of the Los Angeles Clippers.
Tatum also said he felt LeBron was the MVP over Giannis this season before the coronavirus pandemic resulted in the suspension of the 2019-20 campaign.
James, who is already a four-time MVP, is averaging 25.7 points, 10.6 assists and 7.9 rebounds per game this season for a Lakers team with the best record in the Western Conference. Meanwhile, Giannis is averaging 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists per contest for a Bucks team with the best record in the entire NBA.
