This past weekend, Miami Heat forward LeBron James was named the NBA MVP for the third time in four seasons, placing him in elite company. Only seven other players РKareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Moses Malone Рhave won the trophy at least three times. James, who twice won the award with the Cleveland Cavaliers before moving to Miami last season, averaged 27.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists during the 2011-12 regular season, which was shortened to 66 games because of a labor dispute.

To commemorate LeBron’s historic season, adidas has released this special MVP T-Shirt, featuring screenprinted graphics of James, the Miami Heat logo and “2012 NBA MVP” on the front.

Salute the MVP by picking up this new shirt over at Eastbay.
