NBA: LeBron James Named 2010 MVP

words_Nick Engvall

For the second straight season LeBron James has been named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player according to reports from within the Cleveland Cavaliers organization. LeBron becomes the 10th player in NBA history to repeat the feat for back to back seasons.

James led the often changing lineup of the Cleveland Cavaliers team to the league’s best regular season record, 61-21. James averaged 29.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 8.6 assists during the regular season, furthering himself in the annals of NBA history. The only other players to average a minimum of 29 ppg,7rpg and 8 apg, are Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson.

LeBron’s MVP quality performance hasn’t slowed in the 2010 NBA Playoffs, despite a strained and bruised elbow that had the superstar shooting free throws left handed in game five of the first round series against the Bulls. LeBron averaged 31.8 points and 8.2 assists in the series, but his defensive efforts have been equally impressive, averaging 9.2 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 1.2 steals per game against Chicago.

LeBron and the Cavaliers will take on the Boston Celtics in the second round of the playoffs beginning on Saturday evening. The competitiveness of these two veteran teams always makes for great basketball.  Their last playoff meeting was in 2007-2008, where the Celtics went on to win their 17th NBA Championship. You can bet that the always hungry Cavaliers are probably more than ready to repay the favor.
