LeBron James is considered by many to be one of the greatest players in NBA history, and at just at 31-years-old, he still has many years of great plays left. However, the Cleveland Cavaliers star lost the MVP win to Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry last year, and before that, to Oklahoma Thunder’s Kevin Durant, and to this, James responds, “What gives?”
Many fans are wondering why he isn’t getting the recognition he deserves? For the most part, LeBron doesn’t really show his emotion, but according to Hollywood News, he’s really upset he hasn’t won the MVP in two years. James has a ton of respect for Curry and thinks he is a great player and an amazing shooter. However, he feels he’s better than Curry, and everyone else in the league, for that matter. “No one can do what he does and put up the numbers like he does night in and night out”, says Hollywood News. You won’t see James saying anything, but fans know that he’s definitely out to win.
This year is the 60th anniversary of the inaugural Most Valuable Player award and the question remains…who will win? Can Lebron James bring the MVP home or will Stephen Curry do what both Shaquille O’Neal in 2000 and even LeBron James in 2013 could not do…win by unanimous decision? Both James and O’Neil received 120 of the possible 121 votes those years. Only time till tell.
