Most fans are adamant that Embiid should have won MVP.
Throughout the entire NBA season, there was a huge debate over who should win MVP. Most people thought it should go to the likes of Joel Embiid, while others said Nikola Jokic. Those who said Jokic were mostly journalists, while Embiid got the co-sign of both fans and his peers. In the end, MVP went to Jokic, which makes sense given the fact that it is the media who gets to vote.
This is a decision that will prove to be quite controversial. After all, Embiid is way further along in the playoffs right now, and he is doing big things for the Philadelphia 76ers. who just tied up their series against the Miami Heat. Since returning from injury, the Sixers have won two straight games which just proves his impact.
