Despite being widely considered the best player in the league, and practically carrying any team he’s on to the NBA Finals each year, LeBron James hasn’t won the MVP award since 2013.
This season, King James isn’t even a finalist…. WHAT!!?
This past week, the NBA announced that Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Kawhi Leonard will compete of MVP honors, which will be revealed on June 26 at the first-ever NBA Awards. This means James isn’t even in the running, despite averaging 26.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 8.7 assists during the 2016-17 regular season and leading the Cavs to a 51-31 record.
So, what does he think?
After his Cavs destroyed the Boston Celtics on Friday (May 19) in the Eastern Conference Finals, 130-86, he spoke about the MVP finalists list with the press.
“For me, I know what I bring to the table. This league knows what I bring to the table. That’s for you guys to write about. It’s not for me to be concerned about,” LeBron said.

What do you think? Does LeBron James deserve, at the very least, to be named an MVP finalist?
