When it comes to the 2022 MVP race, Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid is at the front of the pack considering the numbers he is putting up and the success the Sixers are having despite a lot of adversity they have had to face.
However, there are some other players who can make a case to win the award and one of them resides in Tennessee.
Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant had a historic performance on Monday as he went for a franchise-record 52 points to lead the Grizzlies to a win over the San Antonio Spurs. The 52 points broke his own previous Grizzlies record of 47 points.
After it was over, Sixers legend Allen Iverson gave some MVP love to Morant on Instagram. He posted a picture of the MVP trophy with Morant’s jersey draped on it.
Iverson is one to always give love and praise to today’s stars. Morant has been impressive all season long and the Philadelphia legend had to give credit where it’s due.
