The NBA announced the three finalists for MVP today. Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard, and James Harden were the top three vote getters for MVP. One name that was missing is LeBron James. Based off what we seen during these playoffs, King James might be the real MVP. However, the MVP award is based on the regular season, so it’s kind of hard to argue with the three finalists.
LeBron addressed the snub after the Cavs 130-86 victory over the Celtics in game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals:
