Mike Budenholzer said that he feels Giannis Antetokounmpo has done enough to earn back-to-back MVP awards this season.
The league announced that voting for individual awards will take place before the season's restart.
"I think it was 64, 65, 66 games for different teams, so that's certainly a significant body of work, and more importantly, certainly, Giannis, in our minds, has done more than enough to deserve a back-to-back MVP. What he does for us on both ends of the court, what he does every night, the way he sets the bar for us, culture-wise, work ethic-wise, just as a teammate," said Budenholzer.
Antetokounmpo could possibly join LeBron James and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only players in league history to win multiple MVP awards by 25-years-old or younger.
Caesars Sportsbook had Antetokounmpo's MVP chances at -800 when the league shutdown.
