According to reports, Miami Heat forward LeBron James named NBA MVP for the Fourth time in five seasons.
The announcement was made on Sunday, with the presentation before the Heat’s second round playoff opener Monday night.
James is the fifth player in NBA history to win four MVPs, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (six),
Michael Jordan (five), Bill Russell (five) and Wilt Chamberlain (four). At 28, James is a year younger than Abdul-Jabbar and Russell, three years younger than Chamberlain and five younger than Jordan were when they won their fourth MVPs.
“I absolutely have not even thought about it,” James said earlier this week of winning his
fourth award. “I have not thought about it, until you just brought it up. I know the history. It would b a unique, unbelievable class I would be a part of, so we’ll see.”
