1. Lebron James: Miami Heat
27.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game. PER: 30.80.
Team Record: 46-20
- Regardless of what people think of him, Lebron James deserves the MVP trophy, as he was simply the best player in the NBA this year. Doubters always talk about his lack of 4th quarter success and the fact that he plays with Dwayne Wade, but the numbers are simply astonishing. The two biggest factors in MVP voting are usually stats and team wins and he has both in staggering numbers. He was 3rd in the NBA in points, 1st in PER, 13th in assists, 3rd in steals and 25th in rebounds, while shooting a career best from the field and from three at 53.1% and 36.2% respectively. He did this while leading his team to the fourth best record in the NBA, which all adds up to Lebron winning his third MVP trophy.
2. Kevin Durant: Oklahoma City Thunder
28.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. PER: 26.2.
Team Record: 47-19

I have had it with NBA officials in the playoffs. The league is softening up to protect stars and I don’t like it one bit. It’s hard to watch a game when there are nearly 50 fouls called per game. The playoffs are about letting defensive players get away with more, not about giving the stars more “star treatment”. I understand that the NBA is a star-driven league. It’s...
