Le Batard really loves Miami. Which makes this weird.
Dan Le Batard didn't vote for LeBron James for NBA MVP: deadsp.in/mRNt1SL
— Deadspin (@Deadspin) May 6, 2013
Ok so when it broke this afternoon that LeBron received 120 out of 121 votes for NBA MVP, a witch hunt started to figure out who the hell voted for Carmelo Anthony.
Now we know.
It was the Miami Herald's (and ESPN's) Dan Le Batard, a huge Miami homer and LeBron fan.
Why you ask?
Well according to Deadspin, the reason is simple — attention.
Of course it was Dan Le Batard. The Miami Herald and ESPN reporter is taking credit as the only one to vote against James for the regular season MVP, instead electing to vote for the New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony. And now he's paying (read: trolling everyone by retweeting every single person who tweets him incredulously) the price.
Let's give him the benefit of the doubt. Yes, his vote robbed LeBron James of the first unanimous reg...

This has made me sick to my stomach all year long. Knicks fans, which happen to be the worst kind in the NBA, have continually bragged about how great their team is. Some even think they have a chance to take down the Heat, which may be more ridiculous than Carmelo stealing a first place MVP vote from LeBron. To start off, I will give credit where it is due, a 54-28 record along...
The second-seeded Knicks take on the third-seeded Pacers in a series that was highly anticipated. Melo broke out of the first round for just the second time of his career and his first time with the Knicks. The Knicks handled the Celtics in the first three games but the Celtics came back and took two games. The Knicks closed out the series in Boston in Game 6. The Pacers...
Does LaLa Anthony have a right to be upset since the Boston Celtics continues to drag her name through the mud as a way to mess with her husband Carmelo [...]
Oh Boston Celtics fans. In the first quarter of Friday night’s Game 6 match up, the Celtics fans started a chant trying to get into the head of Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. Yes, those were “Honey Nut Cheerios” chants you heard. In the end though, it didn’t even matter Knicks finally move on to round two of the playoffs after 13 years.
The Knicks almost blew the lead in...
One thing that I do know about the New York Post is the fact that they will provide a hilarious headline if the New York Knicks lose a playoff game.
Here is their take on Carmelo Anthony’s poor performance in headline form with a play on words with Cinco De Mayo:
MVP Vote: Post’s headline writer drops hilarious Carmelo line [Bob's Blitz]
Back in January, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett made the term “Honey Nut Cheerios” into a whole new thing after he spent some time trash-talking Carmelo Anthony about his wife, La La Vazquez.
Flash-forward to today, Celtics fans decided to serenade Carmelo with those exact words as he made his way to the Knicks bench area during game six of their first-round playoff series...
LeBron James was named the league's MVP, and if it weren't for the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn, he would've been the first ever unanimous MVP.
Heard about this yet?
The story has been all over the news. Why? I have no idea.
Sure it would've been kind of cool for LeBron and Heat fans if he was unanimous, but does it really make that much of a difference? LeBron...
Carmelo Anthony likes Eastern Conference playoff basketball, even the pounding and pain that goes with it.
The wide-open West was fun, with more scoring and less defense, and it certainly didn't hurt as much. But coming off his first series victory since leaving Denver - and his team's first in 13 years - he has adapted to the way it is on the other side.
And here comes...
Boston Globe national basketball and Boston Celtics reporter Gary Washburn published a defense of his decision to cast his NBA MVP vote for Carmelo Anthony. Washburn’s vote prevented Lebron James from becoming the first unanimous MVP in NBA history. James received 120 out of 121 first place votes to win the award for the fourth consecutive season. Washburn’s decision has generated...
LeBron James won his fourth NBA MVP award in five years, collecting 120 of the 121 first-place votes. The only first-place vote that didn’t go James’ way was cast by Boston Globe writer Gary Washburn. He placed his vote for Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks.
The Internet exploded with outrage when the announcement was made that James’ award hadn’t been a unanimous...
This weekend word got out that LeBron James received 119 of a possible 120 MVP votes, falling just short of becomign the first unanimous MVP in league history. Immediately, the conversation turned to who the joker was that "robbed" James of the honor and possibly could have watched this season thinking LeBron was not the best and most valuable player in the league.

LeBron James received all but one first place vote for the 2013 NBA Most Valuable Player award as Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe cast his vote instead for Carmelo Anthony.
James joked in his MVP press conference that he bet a writer from New York voted for Anthony instead of him. Washburn is the longtime beat writer for the Celtics with the Boston Globe.

Police are investigating a possible bias attack near Madison Square Garden after the New York Knicks lost to the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of their playoff series on Sunday.
Nick Porto and Kevin Atkins were attacked as they were walking arm in arm down Eighth Ave. near the arena when a group of Knicks fans approached the men and began using anti-gay slurs, said authorities.
Happy Monday to all. Lebron was officially named as the Most Valuable Player. We all know this was imminent and likely. What was the question is whether he will be the first unanimous one. Unfortunately, he wasn’t. He was close, though, as he snagged all but one first-place vote. The Akron native thought it was a NY-based person who gave the dissenting vote, since that lone vote...
