LeBron James said he would “reclaim” his throne from reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, according to Kendrick Perkins.

“Look man, I’ve got Giannis ahead of you,” Perkins told James prior to the season.

Perkins, 35, has thrived as a TV talking head following a 14-year NBA career.

Per The Athletic:



“I do my homework and I do my research on things, and I just feel like I’m a guy who, in his media, I don’t ever want to mess up my credibility, so I just speak facts,” Perkins said. “I never want to be biased and I never try to sway one way or just be taking up for my homeboy.”

Perkins pointed to, as an example of his avoiding bias, picking Giannis Antetokounmpo as his preseason pick for MVP, over his friend LeBron, with whom he spent a summer playing for the Oakland Soldiers, an AAU team, in high school.

“I sent him a text and I said. ‘Look man, I’ve got Giannis ahead of you,’” Perkins said.

“And that’s when he texted me back and said, ‘Oh don’t worry, I’m gonna reclaim my throne.’ And I was like, ‘OK, well then do it mothafucka.’ He’s like, ‘I am, mothafucka.’”
