ESPN – One day after Curry was voted the first unanimous winner in 61 years, James, who finished third behind Curry and San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard, said the honor can be interpreted in different ways…”I think sometimes the word ‘valuable’ or best player of the year you can have different results,” said James, a four-time MVP. “You know, that’s not taking anything from anyone that’s ever won the award.”
Another quote in a long line of them from LeBron that just come off as salty at best. Do you think LeBron was playing semantics when he won back to back MVPs? Winning the award four times (09,10,12,13) I’m pretty sure LeBron would be bullshit if people tried to say he was merely a valuable player, not actually the best player in the league.
Steph Curry is on a historic run and is just decimating teams, albeit in an unconventional way jacking 3’s from half court. Curry is the best player in the league hands down. May not be the best defender, shot creator, whatever you want to nitpick, but is the best overall player in the NBA? Hands down. Hell, even NBA2k had to apologize for not making his video game character good enough. Just more sour grapes coming out of Believeland.
