LBJ Is the King Yet Again!

Last year, exactly on the same date, I wrote about Lebron James winning his first NBA Regular Season MVP. Today, I am yet again blogging about LBJ winning the NBA MVP, his second in as many years.

I asked in last year’s post if he could bring the Cleveland Cavs to the promised land but they faltered against Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals. I am again wondering if he could go all the way this time.

Lebron joins an exclusive list of back-to-back NBA MVP’s – Bill Russel, Wilt Chamberlain and Larry Bird (who all won it 3 consecutive years during the 60’s and in Bird’s case, the 80’s), Kareem Abdul-Jabar (who did a double back-to-back with the Bucks and then the Lakers), Moses Malone (who achieved the back-to-back with 2 different teams), Magic Johnson, Tim Duncan, Steve Nash and of course, the great Michael Jordan.

All of the above-mentioned players have multiple NBA Championships to their names, besides Steve Nash. LBJ needs to prove that, like NBA greats, he has the ability to bring his team right till the end.

As I am writing this, the Cavs are playing the Celtics in the Eastern semi-finals and the series is currently tied at 1-1. To be a legend, he needs to win a ring; otherwise, he’ll just be another great player and nothing more.

Let’s see in June if LBJ can join the ranks of the NBA’s greatest players.
