Default Ok, LeBron(3 time MVP) is having his best season but Durant is a clear MVP favorite

LeBron has won 3 MVP's in his career and 2013 LeBron is playing better than any previous MVP winning LeBron. Yet we ISH view Durant as a heavy favorite to win MVP this year, maybe that's because 2013 Durant is better than any LeBron. Let's discuss.

Da ****?

Durant has zero case over LeBron for MVP. None. Zilch.

People on this forum like to say "MVP is a two man race between LeBron and Durant", which is nonsense. LeBron will win another unanimous MVP just like 2010.

Voter fatigue is a real thang.

If voter fatigue didn't exist, LeBron would be a 5-Time MVP (No offense to D-Rose or KD) after this year. MVP of the league for half of his 10 year career. A 5-TIME (COUNT IT... 5- TIME) MVP in just 10 seasons. Just let that sink in...

Durant had a case......back in November-early December. LeBron has blown this race by 5 laps now.

LeBron's scoring has increased from 25 to 27 per game, and his rebounding still remains 8+ per game. He'll pick is REB up again by end of Feb.

LeBron makes a case for being slightly ahead of other MVP contenders

Same reason that Barkley and Malone won MVPs that could have gone to MJ. Voters get tired of giving the same player the award, and want to see someone new get it.

Having said that, if voter fatigue wasn't a real thing Jordan would have at least 7 MVPs. He somehow didn't win it in his best statistical year.

IMO MVP's MJ should have won: 1991, 1992, 1996, 1997, 1998

1997: Jordan, not Malone should have won
1988: Bird, not Jordan should have won

He also had a good case in 1990. The year Barkley won, it was Hakeem's award imo.

when are people going to realize MVP doesn't always go to the best player? Shaq & Kobe have 1 MVP, should be proof enough.

Thats not the problem though.Shaq has never been a dominant in regular season and kobe has been dominant for 2 seasons where his team sucked.Even when he won mvp back in 2008 he was no where near lebron valuable(or durant for that matter)

If lebron doesnt get it this year,only reason will be voters fatigue.He has been so dominant.

Mamba deserves 0 MVPs. Just be gracious that he was undeservingly handed the regular season MVP award .....and the 2010 finals MVP that should have went to Gasol.

As for Shaq not being dominant in the regular season...LOL Shaq should have won 4 MVPs minimum- 1999-2002 and then 2004

Back to the topic- Lebron is clearly having the best year and will capture his 4th MVP.

Kobe is the 2005 MVP?

Don't be so hateful. Kobe's best season, 2005-06 season, doesn't fit to the criteria of being the MVP. He deserved his MVP in 2008.

You're just as delusional as Kobe-stans.
1999-2000-2001-2002 and then 2004? That's 5. I'm just saying in case of you can not count.

1998-99 season is the worst season of Shaq while he was in his prime. He was not the MVP in that season, clearly.
Shaq's 2000 MVP is one of the most deserved MVPs.
Iverson's 2001 MVP was about hype. It should have gone to Shaq or Duncan.
Shaq didn't have a case for Duncan for being the MVP in 2001-02.
Garnett's 2004 MVP is one of the most deserved MVPs. Shaq had no case over him.
Although IMO, Shaq should have won the 2005 MVP.

I'd say 2 or 3 is accurate for Shaq. 'Minimum 4' is just delusional. Don't be so uncontrolled while trying to bash to Kobe.
