Lebron James MVP 08-09
Mark my words right here right now. Lebron James will be the NBA MVP this season. Being in the NBA Finals two seasons ago and having won the Olympic Gold Medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Lebron James is soaring to new heights this season leading the Cavs to a 7-2 record and averaging 28.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 7.3 assists this season. I don't think the team has enough to overtake the Celtics in the Eastern conference, but they will be up there in the standings throughout.
He already amazed fans with his vertical and athleticism this season. During a game against the Bucks, LBJ jumped from the free throw line for a dunk. His dunk is definitely one of the highlights of the season in the NBA so far. Julius "Dr. J" Erving was the first and Michael Jordan did it during the 1988 Dunk Contest. Now you can add Lebron into the high flyers group.
