Why LeBron Is Not The MVP
The Basketball Gods Have Failed Me: LeBron Wins MVP
5/14/12 in NBA
I'm not saying that LeBron is eliminated from MVP discussions because of his Superfriends. However, in order for him to be an MVP, his team has to perform incredibly. I'd probably have given LeBron MVP this year if they had finished with the NBA's best record, but they didn't. LeBron may have had the best stats and the most outstanding year, but it's obvious that Durant's impact on the Thunder was more valuable than LeBron's impact on the Heat, which means that LeBron is not the league's most VALUABLE player. Oh well.
Just a side note, my MVP runner up is Chris Paul. How much the Clippers improved this year speaks for itself.
