In an announcement that is not too surprising to many, Miami Heat small forward LeBron James may need to make room for another trophy.
According to Michael Wallace of ESPN, James is be named NBA Most Valuable Player for the fourth time in his career, joining the likes of Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain in what many felt was the worst kept secret in the NBA.
While Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers and Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks put up impressive numbers, none of them had the type of year that James had for the Heat.
During the 2012-13 season, James averaged 26.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 1.7 steals in 76 games. James also shot a career-best 56.5 percent from the field and 40.6 percent from three-point range in helping lead the defending NBA champion Heat to a franchise-best 66-16 record and the second longest NBA streak at 27, six behind the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.
In winning his fourth MVP, James becomes the youngest to win four at the age of 28 and only the second to ever win four in a five-year span joining Russell.
