The NBA hasn’t included champion Stephen Curry in the top three of their top 10 players this season, with the Golden State Warriors guard sitting fourth.
Curry was named MVP of the NBA finals after leading the Warriors to a 4-2 win in the series against Boston Celtics. However, the man who is topping the rankings is Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Greek Freak was extraordinary in the playoffs despite his team being eliminated by the Celtics in the conference semi-finals following the injury of Khris Middleton.
Antetokounmpo is followed by Kevin Durant and LeBron James in second and third place, respectively. The Brooklyn Nets player is rated for his scoring efficiency, despite his recent serious knee injury.
Meanwhile, despite his 37 years of age, James was the second top scorer in the regular season, with 30.3 points per game, very close to top scorer Joel Embiid.
Despite winning the regular season MVP award for the second campaign in a row, Nikola Jokic was not in the top three, sitting fifth in the rankings
Jokic is followed by Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic, while Joel Embiid is eighth, behind Boston Celtics leader Jayson Tatum. Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard is ninth despite missing the entire season with an ACL injury.
Jimmy Butler ranks tenth, while players such as Ja Morant and Chris Paul were left out.
