Best Player in the NBA Thinks He Should Be MVP

I know this is going to shock some people, but a top-2 basketball player of all time who has been to the NBA Finals like every year says he would vote for himself as MVP this season.
Yes. The timing on this is poor considering the Cavaliers tanked Tuesday night against the Heat and somehow only scored 79 points, but that shouldn’t matter? LeBron‘s the GOAT and he knows it so he kept it real when speaking with The Associated Press:

“I would vote for me,” James told The Associated Press. “The body of work, how I’m doing it, what’s been happening with our team all year long, how we’ve got so many injuries and things of that nature, guys in and out, to be able to still keep this thing afloat, I definitely would vote me.”

LeBron already has four MVP awards (and three NBA Finals MVPs) in his trophy case, but his last one came in 2013. It sure seems like he wants to win one as an old man:

“At this point in my career, I’m just trying to break the mold, break the narrative of guys in their 15th year … I’m trying to do things that have never been done before,” James said. “It’s crazy because I’m not setting out to do it. It’s just kind of happening organically. I’m just training my body and training my mind and going out and playing and seeing what happens.”

That sound you hear? It’s James Harden’s fanboys complaining this is his year after losing out on the award to Russell Westbrook last season. Their stats are pretty comparable (30-8-5 on 45 percent shooting vs 27-9-8 on 55 percent shooting) — the only question here is how much you weigh team wins into an individual award.
