Brian Windhorst thinks LBJ should be MVP.Â
It has been said and written many times recently that LeBron James is having the best season of his career.
The Cavaliers are barely keeping their heads above water, heading toward the midpoint of the season at just a game above .500 at 19-18. Based on that trend, it would be a hard sell for James to win the league’s Most Valuable Player award because voters usually weigh the team’s record heavily.
No player on a team with less than 50 wins has received the MVP since Moses Malone of the Houston Rockets in 1982. The Cavs would have to finish the season 31-14 to get to 50 wins and match their record of the previous two seasons.
Nevertheless, James’ performance has never been better.
