LeBron James the MVP

MVP snub LeBron James has come into the league and produced crazy numbers that no one can compete with and yet we bypass giving him MVP each year after he left Cleveland. The media chooses the MVP before the players play any game. This year Kevin Durant will get the MVP but currently he’s not producing better numbers than LeBron. Is the MVP voting system tainted do we need some other unbias way to grade players performance throughout the season to crown the most valuable player?

Let just look at the stats from his rookie year to 2012. Career average of 27.7 ppg 7.1 rpg and 7.0 apg

Year Team G MPG FG% 3P% RPG APG SPG BPG PPG

All-Star 6 25.3 0.504 0.35 6.3 5.3 1.8 0.3 23.7

These stats are ridiculous!! His stats aren’t better than Michael Jordan’s but in this current generation he is by far the best producer. With stats like these it is amazing that he only has 2 MVP’s. I know what most of you will say but he has no rings. Ok fair statement but understand that the MVP award is a regular season award and what LeBron does in the playoffs is not factored in. I’m not a LeBron hater but I respect his game,
he is a freak of nature when it comes to a 6’8″ SF that averages 27.7 a game and is a lock down defender. Derrick Rose was the MVP last year and averaged 25PPG 7APG and 4RPG. Now I like Derrick Rose and I think his play was great last year but compared to LeBron’s stats he was not the MVP in fact Russell Westbrook put up Derrick Rose numbers last year so you could say he deserved it also. The bottom line is that when LeBron is on the court he makes the team better and I mean way better. Isn’t this the Definition of MVP?
