LeBron James to Be Named MVP

Who thought it would be anything different?  LeBron James, from game 1 has been the MVP of the NBA this year even with tremendous showings from Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and Brandon Roy.  He dominated in ways we haven't seen from a player since Michael Jordan?  (Not going into comparisons there, just saying.)
James, who will become the first Cavaliers player to win the award, finished second in voting for defensive player of the year.

At 24 years, 106 days, he will be the youngest player to win the award since Moses Malone (24 years, 16 days) in 1978-79. Wes Unseld was 23 when he won it in 1968-69.

Focused from the start of the 2008-09 season, the 6-foot-8, 250-pound James sharpened his magnificent skills this season.

He started a career-high 81 games and set personal bests in field-goal (49) and free-throw (79) percentages. James became just the second player to post five straight seasons of at least 27 points, six rebounds and six assists. The other is Oscar Robertson, whose well-rounded game is the one James' is most often compared.

Congrats big boy, you definitely deserve it.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
