  Carmelo Anthony has weighed in on who his pick for MVP is, and it’s not himself, it’s Lebron. Both Anthony and James have led strong campaigns for their MVP caliber seasons. But with Lebron’s lights out performance, putting up career high numbers it seems as if James has left everyone else in the dust. CBSSports has reported on Melo’s stance on the current MVP race “It’s early,” “It’s All-Star break right now. I mean, he’s [Lebron] definitely playing like a Most Valuable Player, so we’ll see what happens when it comes to that.” “That’s crazy,… What he’s doing right now is unbelievable. He’s scored 30-something points on 11 shots and 10-for-12 and things like that. I mean, he’s on an incredible run right now. I’ve never [seen] nothing like it.” While Carmelo isn’t quite ready to 100% give the race away to Lebron, he has acknowledged the undeniable–if the season were to end today Lebron would easily be the MVP. Do you agree with Melo’s choice?

LeBron James, the greatest NBA player in this current era is most certainly going to draw comparisons to the greatest player of the previous era in Michael Jordan.

The Celtics Continue To Ruin My Life

More Snow, Please It's such a fun year in the Asso- ciation, people. LeBron James and Kevin Durant have both taken their games up another notch, which seemed more or less impossible last year; it's not too much of a stretch to say that they might be authoring the two best individual seasons in league history right now.
