there's an important difference

CP3 was the most valuable to his team I agree. But LeBron was a more valuable player in terms of what he did in the league. It's hard to distinguish what the actually meaning of the award is, so I guess it's open to interpretation by the voters. There isn't really a set criteria is there?

LeBron's easily established himself as one of the greatest players of all-time. It's just a matter of how great now.

Will he join Shaq and Duncan as the only players since 2000 to have an MVP, Finals MVP and championship ring in the same season?

Or will he be one of the many former MVPs to not win it all?

There is no official criteria but hypothetically there is.... its easy to find out if you take a careful look at all the MVP winners in NBA history.... they all had two things incommon....

1. All MVP winners were on teams who had one of top 4 best team records during the season... what this says is that a player can not win the MVP if he doesnt have one of 4 best team records... maybe can win it if you have the 5th best team record or so but there you will need to produce like a behemoth, something like a 50 point quadruple double or something.. lol..

2. All MVP winners were the best players in their teams and were more valuable to their teams than any of those other players in those 4 top teams..... Taking for example a horrible supporting cast to one of the 4 best team records will guaranteed win you the MVP all the time, thats showing the most valuability..... latest example is Lebrons first 2 MVPs and D.Roses MVP....

Going by these 2 requirements you will find out that each and every MVP winner was the correct winner.... this season for example:

The top 4 team records this season:

Bulls
Spurs
Thunder
Heat

Out of those 4 teams and those teams MVPs (Rose, Parker, Durant, Lebron) it was Lebron who was the best, most impactful and most productive player... the closest to him was Durant.... who rightfully so will be a runner-up....

With all due respect to Durant and CP3 and their amazing performances this year, there was no question this was going straight to LeBron.
Dude played out of mind in every statistical category and earned this by a mile.

I don't think you expect to be taken seriously.

Titles will just give people an excuse to admit the obvious; that he's one of the greatest to ever play this game.
