LeBron James is quickly approaching a club that not many athletes will have membership to.  ESPN.com is reporting that James will be named NBA MVP for the second straight season, and his fourth career MVP overall. James will  join Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain with at least four MVP awards. “He’s earned it,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said of James after Friday’s practice. “He’s having an even more historic season than he’s had the last two years. Most people probably didn’t think he could go to a higher level after last season, yet he reinvented himself to show that he could. Our pinch-ourselves moment was when we signed him. But since we’ve had him, we don’t take him for granted.” James averaged 26.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 1.7 steals and one block this season.
