LeBron James MVP
Word leaked on Friday that LeBron James would win the NBA’s “Most Valuable Player” award but in reality the basketball world knew a long time ago that the king had his fourth MVP trophy in the last five years all wrapped up.
The formal announcement of James’ fourth Most Valuable Player award is planned for Sunday, the eve of the Eastern Conference semifinals for the Heat. The honor will vault him into an elite category shared by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain, the only other players to win the award at least four times.
As LeBron James was walking to Miami’s home bench for the final time this regular season, he raised his left arm to acknowledge the roars of another sold-out crowd. And when the obligatory “M-V-P” chants started up, James waved again.
