LeBron James would vote for himself for Most Valuable Player.
“I would vote for me,” James told The Associated Press. “The body of work, how I’m doing it, what’s been happening with our team all year long, how we’ve got so many injuries and things of that nature, guys in and out, to be able to still keep this thing afloat, I definitely would vote me.”
James is averaging 27.4 points, 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds on 55 percent shooting, which compares favorably to years in which he won MVP.
James Harden is widely considered the favorite to win MVP.
“At this point in my career, I’m just trying to break the mold, break the narrative of guys in their 15th year. ... I’m trying to do things that have never been done before,” James said. “It’s crazy because I’m not setting out to do it. It’s just kind of happening organically. I’m just training my body and training my mind and going out and playing and seeing what happens.”
