Why Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is the NBA's MVP ...
"..."Based on several totally subjective blog posts, my Twitter mentions, Las Vegas odds, the opinions of a former teammate and someone he currently shares a locker room with, it's widely felt that LeBron won't lift a fifth Maurice Podoloff trophy over his head once this season ends. (Doing so would forge a three-way tie with Michael Jordan and Bill Russell for the second-most MVP's in NBA history, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.) Here's why all that noise is wrong, why the league's best player should also be recognized as its most valuable."..." see full article

LeBron's MVP case - ESPN

"..."There are a lot of worthy candidates," said Jones, who was with James in Miami for two of his MVP campaigns and believes that the award should go to him again this season. "But I look at total body of work, impact on the team and the growth and for as good of a season that some of the other guys have had, you look at team continuity and you look at the team we had before and the team that we have post-trade and just how fast we've grown and just how much of an impact (James) has had. I think like every year he is definitely a leading candidate."..." see full article

Why LeBron James should not be overlooked in the MVP race
"..."When Cleveland's MVP candidate heads to the bench, the roster's offensive rating plummets to just 103.2. The team's effective field goal percentage with LeBron (53.1 percent) is also far better than without him (47.5). The Cavs suffer when James isn't gliding up and down the hardwood.
