LeBron James wins his fourth MVP award. The vote however wasn’t unanimous. There was one vote cast for Knicks Carmelo Anthony. During the ceremony LeBron expressed how important his teammates were to his success.
“You guys saw me sitting in this chair and I kept looking over at them,” James said, standing behind a podium. “It’s because I’d rather be sitting there with them. I know this is an individual award, but I would much rather be sitting over there in shorts and a T-shirt, wondering what the hell they’re joking about, because I want to be a part of that joke and I hate being out on all the jokes.
“I want to know what’s happening. OK, guys? I would much rather be over there with my guys, because that’s what it’s all about.
“Without those guys, this trophy is not possible. The Larry O’Brien Trophy last year is not possible. Nothing that I receive individually is possible without those 14 guys because of what they sacrifice each and every day — sweat and blood and the time and
BEST OF MAXIM
I have previously purposed the idea that, despite his colossal contract, LeBron James is the most underpaid player in the NBA, and maybe all of professional sports. Taking into account both on and off court impact, I can’t think of another individual in sports who affects a franchise as much as LeBron, and apparently I am not the only one.Recently the people over at CableTVblog...
No one will argue that LeBron James is underpaid, however the NBA has its rules and players are forced to live with them. ‘Bron pulls in a $16 million dollar salary which makes him the 13th highest paid player in the NBA, but the below facts will just solidify that he deserves more money. LeBron is grossly underpaid. However, we do believe that LeBron should refrain from stating...
LeBron James wore specially-designed Nike shoes, dubbed the "Nike LeBron X MVP," for the Heat's Game 1 showdown against the Chicago Bulls.
LeBron James had the shoes, but he didn't have the jumper with this airball in Miami's Game 1 loss to the Chicago Bulls.
MIAMI (AP) --LeBron James is the overwhelming choice as the NBA's Most Valuable Player.
The Miami Heat star took 120 of 121 first-place votes in this year's balloting, giving him the award for the fourth time. Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant finished second and the New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony was third.
James' selection was not unanimous, despite plenty of suggestions...
Early in the weekend the 'news' broke that LeBron James would be named the NBA MVP for the fourth time on Sunday. Shocker right? Tell us something that we don't know!
What we didn't know was whether he would make history by becoming the first player to win the award by a unanimous vote. Well--we now know that answer (and secretly Shaq is smiling).
Miami Heat forward LeBron James will soon be presented with his fourth MVP award. Joining Bill Russell as the only players in NBA history to win the award 4 times in 5 seasons. So when asked about his legacy and what the fourth MVP will mean to him, LeBron was open and honest about the [...]
Yes, I get it, LeBron James is a phenomenal basketball player. He will win more championships, he’ll go to the Hall of Fame, and he will go on to be the greatest player of his generation. These statement are all facts, no matter how you feel about it, and I hate admitting this more than I hate admitting that I kind of like the show The Walking Dead. However, was he really THIS...
LeBron James was officially awarded the 2012-13 NBA Most Valuable Player award on Sunday, earning the honor for the second consecutive year and the fourth time in five seasons.
The only other player to win the award in four of five seasons is Bill Russell (1961, 62, 63, 65), and the only other players to win at least four regular-season MVPs are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (six), Michael...
MIAMI (AP) -- The writer who did not choose LeBron James of the Miami Heat as the NBA's Most Valuable Player believes Carmelo Anthony "meant more to his team" this season.
Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe says Anthony made the New York Knicks relevant again by leading them to their first division title in nearly two decades. Washburn's explanation was published...
LeBron James shot 40.6 percent on three point attempts this season, which was easily the best mark of his career.
James figured improving from the outside “could make me even more dynamic where guys couldn’t just lay off of me and dare me to shoot.”
James put himself through difficult workouts in Akron in which he would run wind sprints for missing three-pointers.
One of the strangers encounters that I’ve ever had with a sh*t-talking sports fan came after the Miami Heat defeated the Orlando Magic last season, and a gentleman in a Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James jersey and Heat hat was shouting to the Amway Center crowd, “That’s how he do it! That’s how he do it!” And I didn’t need to ask him why he was wearing one team’s jersey...
There's little reason to pity four-time NBA MVP LeBron James - his life is going pretty darn good right now. But the fact of the matter is that the King of the NBA is vastly underpaid. Proof:
What LeBron James has done is simply amazing, and he deserves comparisons to the greatest players ever. But what’s wrong with this passage by Jason Reid of the Washington Post?
“I would have him [James] right behind Jordan and Chamberlain,” a smart Western Conference general manager told me Monday. “If you had a time machine, and were starting a franchise right now, I would...
It looks like more NBA ballers are starting to wear Staple Design shirts after Lebron James made headlines a couple weeks ago with his bold print Staple Fallon Crewneck Sweatshirt. Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson aka “Instant Offense” was spied walking into the United Center arena for Game 6 Vs. Brooklyn Nets wearing a $52 Staple Dugout Polo shirt. Would you rock it ??
