For decades, the NBA had been a bastion for American players. Over the last years, something has changed and it's readily apparent throughout the 2021 MVP Awards.

For the first time in basketball history, the reigning regular-season MVP, the Finals MVP, the All-Star MVP, but also the World Cup MVP (voted on in 2019) are fully international, with no American player appearing on the list.

Giannis Antetokounmpo from Greece is the NBA Finals and the All-Star Game MVP. The "Greek Freak" has also joined Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon as the only players in NBA history to win a regular-season MVP Award, a Finals MVP Award, and a Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Nikola Jokic from Serbia is the NBA regular season MVP.

Ricky Rubio from Spain is the current FIBA World Cup MVP.

Let's see who the Olympic Basketball Tournament MVP will be.
