With the NBA regular season coming to a close it’s time for awards week at The Hoops Manifesto. We’ve teamed up with some of Bloguin’s best NBA writers to vote on who gets the (virtual) hardware. Next up: MVP
LeBron James – Miami
27.1 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 6.2 apg, 1.9 spg, 53.1% FG
Kevin Durant turned it into a fight, but LeBron James ended up prevailing as our choice for NBA MVP. And how can you argue with that statline above? James had a dominant season and both ends of the floor – perhaps his best year in the NBA yet.
Others receiving votes: Kevin Durant
