    LeBron is the MVP

    All you ever hear from the media is that Westbrook/Harden is the MVP, but the NBA is not the Final 4. The award is the Most VALUABLE Player, NOT the Most Outstanding Player. Undoubtedly no player in the NBA is more valuable than LeBron - without him the Cavs would struggle to play .500 and they are the reigning champ and will play for the championship again if he stays healthy. Sure, every game Westbrook/Harden play great, but their teams are nowhere near as good as the Cavaliers because of LeBron. The Rockets/Thunder aren't going to the championship series unless they get real lucky. Westbrook/Harden are deserving of Most Outstanding Player awards, but LeBron is the NBA's regular season MVP. It couldn't be more obvious.

    Best of Luck

    Leonard without Spurs?

    yeah its a bit of semantics mixed in with circumstances, and every voter looks at it a bit differently

    hell

    Michael Jordan left hoops to play some baseball for a year and a half

    the year before he left the Bulls were 57-25 and the next year they were 55-27 without him

    Lebron's last year in Cleveland they were they won 61 games, the years he was gone Cleveland won

    19
    21
    24
    33

    Lebron comes back they win 53 and lose in finals, then win 57 and win in finals


    Last year with Heat for Lebron they win 54 and lose in finals. next year without Lebron they only win 37 and aren't a playoff team


    Lebron is MVP every year until he starts to show decline from age

    Neither one would be as bad as Cleveland without LeBron.

    Another thing = Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut choose to sign with Cleveland - Why? Because LeBron is there = they don't go to Houston or OkC. So who's MOST Valuable. Irving stays in Cleveland, Love signs a long term contract with Cleveland, JR signs a 4 year deal with Cleveland, and now Deron Williams and Bogut sign with Cleveland because LeBron gives them their best chance to win a championship. That is the definition of Most Valuable.

    Here's the thing, LeBron is not even in the major media discussion on this = you never hear his name mentioned when they talk about MVP. The fans in Cleveburg don't chant MVP when he misses his free throws. THIS IS CRAZY -> the guy is plain as the nose on your face MVP.

    The things he does are taken for granted because he's been doing them on the biggest stage since he was a teenager. Other players bounce off of him, and the refs swallow their whistles because they have seen it a thousand times, but if it happened to any other player it's a foul. Just because he is like the energizer bunny doesn't mean he's not MVP.

    Best of Luck

    BTB with Curry. Now all the talk Harden/Westbrook. Both having spectacular seasons.

    Remember Stevie Nash winning TWICE. He was great. Made his team better, yadayada.

    But not one GM @ the time he won those would have picked him to start their team.
    Shaq was around somewhere? Silly.

    LBJ winning 8 or so in a row would not have been good for the league I guess.
