Kia has been doing a lot to promote its partnership with the NBA, from providing free ride-share services during the 2017 All-Star Game to presenting one of the best players in the league with the Kia MVP award. At the beginning of the month, Kia announced the Kia MVP Fan Vote Sweepstakes, where basketball fans vote on their top 5 MVP contenders and are then entered to win a trip to one game of the NBA Finals, which begin on June 1st.
