LeBron’s MVP hopes officially shattered, comes in second

As has been rumored for the last couple weeks, Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash was voted the MVP for the second straight season. LeBron James finished in second place in front of Dirk Nowitzski, Kobe Bryant, and Chauncey Billups. James tallied 16 first place votes and 688 overall behind Nash’s 57 and 924. Despite failing to win it this season, the 21-year-old star knows there will be plenty of chances in the future.

“It would have been nice of course to put another trophy in my house, in my showcase,” he said from Auburn Hills, Mich., before the Cavaliers played the Detroit Pistons. “But it’s something I’m going to keep working hard for. I can’t dwell on not being named MVP.”

Obviously I, as well as every other Cavalier fan, have campaigned all along for LeBron to win the award this season but it isn’t the end of the world. His reign and dominance in the league is only beginning and he will have plenty of time to rack up MVP trophies. I guess this just wasn’t his year.
