Twitter reacts to LeBron James winning 4th MVP award


LeBron James will be announced as the winner of the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award for the fourth time in his illustrious career, according to multiple media reports.

James was the runaway and overwhelming favorite to take the trophy home for the fourth time in five years, making him only the second player ever to accomplish such a feat. Bill Russell first accomplished this in the late 60s when he established Boston as the sports first true dynasty. And he joins Russell, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chaimberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only players to be handed the MVP trophy at least four times.

James averaged 27 points, 8 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1 block shot per game as he led the Heat to a franchise record 66-16 record, including record home wins and a 27-game winning streak as James hopes to get to his third-straight NBA Finals. LBJ’s dominance on the basketball court in 2012-13 was so thorough that he finished a close second to Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol for Defensive Player of the Year award. Some basketball connoisseurs such as Stephen A. Smith believe that King James should won both major awards.

Fan reactions on social media ranged widely to congratulations for the 6-foot-8 Miami Heat superstar to disappointment and disgust. Some believed that this was New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony’s year.
