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 everything. “I always know that with team success comes individual prizes and accolades, but this really doesn’t mean that much to me. I’m humbled and I’m happy about it, but I wish there were 15 of these up here because I’m with a great group of guys who allow me to be the MVP each and every night. So, thank you.”   In addition to LeBron’s teammates and Also on hand to watch LeBron accept his fourth MVP award his mother Gloria, fiance Savannah James and their two sons.   In his speech, LeBron thanked Savannah for putting up with him being a professional athlete. Not being home and how great of a mother she is to his two sons. And even thanked his future in-laws for the help they provide with his two sons. Her mom was in tears.   photos via @NBA, @SavannahRB
