Petty LeBron is the best LeBron James. Steph Curry took home hissecond consecutive Most Valuable Player award Tuesday, becoming the first player in 61 years to unanimously win the trophy. Earlier today, James discussed the honor, congratulating Curry on his latest achievement while debating the true meaning of “Valuable” in MVP.
Per The Associated Press:
“Look at Steph’s numbers. He averaged 30, he led the league in steals, he was 90-50-40 (shooting percentages from the free-throw line, field and 3-pointers), and they won 73 (games). So, I don’t, do you have any debate over that, really, when it comes to that award? But when you talk about most ‘valuable’ then you can have a different conversation, so, take nothing away from him, he’s definitely deserving of that award, for sure.”
So, if you’re keeping track at home, LeBron isn’t taking anything away from Curry’s win but also thinks there’s a difference between being the most “valuable” player and the best player in the league. Sure, ‘Bron ‘Bron. Sure. Is this LeBron’s way of saying he believes he was the most valuable player in the league? Because the Cleveland Cavaliers star forward didn’t even come in second in MVP voting, falling to third behind Curry and Kawhi Leonard.
