LeBron James endorsed Stephen Curry for MVP this season. 

"I mean, just look at what he's done this year," James said. "I don't know anything else if you're looking for an MVP. If Steph is not on Golden State's team, what are we looking at?

"We get caught up in the records sometimes. We get caught up in the, OK, who has the best record, instead of just saying who had the best season that year. And Steph has had, in my opinion, the best season all year."

Curry and the Golden State Warriors will play LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers in a play-in game on Wednesday. 

Nikola Jokic is widely expected to win MVP with Curry in contention alongside Joel Embiid.
