Lebron to be named the MVP

Lebron James will be named the MVP player this afternoon, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.

James has chosen to have the announcement at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron. All his Cavs teammates are expected to be there as well as representatives from Kia, which will give him a new car as part of the honor. The Cavaliers called a news conference for 4 p.m. ET but didn’t specify the nature of the event.

Lebron will be the first Cavaliers to win this honor. Lebron averaged 28.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.2 assists during the regular season and the Cavaliers won a team-record 66 games and earned the top overall seed in the playoffs. Two weeks ago, Mike Brown was named the NBA coach of the year.

“Having the honor given to him in the gym at SVSM was James’ personal choice. It is a special place for him. His retired No. 23 jersey is on the wall and three state championship banners he won with the Fighting Irish hang in the rafters. When he made the annoucement he was turning pro it was in the gym and he’s had many photo shoots and filmed many commercials there as well. His first Sports Illustrated cover was shot there and he recently filmed a “60 Minutes” interview there. Still a resident of Akron, it is another sign of how loyal James is to his Akron roots.” Brian Windhorst said.
