I myself congratulated LeBron James on his MVP award, it’s quite an honor as he enters the four times MVP club. I think LeBron fully deserved this award, he was on top of his game all year. He took his team on an amazing run, he makes everyone on his team better, and he’s simply been unstoppable in the regualr season. He is a true MVP.
This is a matter of opinion though; the award itself is all how you want to interpret who the MVP is. Should Derrick Rose or Kobe Bryant get the MVP because with their absence they proved how much their team needs them? Should Carmello get the MVP for his spectacular play and the streak he took the Knicks on? Who should the MVP be, well it’s your own personal opinion.
Personal opinion died yesterday when one rouge voter decided to vote for Carmello and not LeBron. LeBron I want to apologize to directly here on my blog, I hope this doesn’t offend you but control your fans LeBron. Everyone can vote for who they want to vote for. Also just so LeBron fans know, there’s a difference between a Heat fan and a James fan. Just saying.
Earlier in the weekend it leaked that superstar LeBron James would be named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player for a fourth time. Then word came out that King James may actually be a unanimous MVP, receiving all of the first-place votes. That would be a first in the NBA. Then the word finally became official on Sunday: LeBron James, 2013 NBA MVP, receiving 120 of 121 first-place votes.
On Sunday, the witch hunt for the non-LeBron voter was on. Of course, it didn’t take long for some wise guys to have fun, and others to get a healthy heaping of egg on their face. Miami sportswriter Dan Le Batard was one of these wise guys, who, after word reportedly leaked around 6 p.m. ET that he had given his first-place vote to Carmelo Anthony, launched a firestorm with three simple words.
Within seconds, the Twitter haters were bombarding Le Batard with some rather entertaining material, which he then retweeted to the world, including these gems. LeBron Twitter fans are funny and they get so mad so fast. Though they can be internet trolls as well sometimes.
It gets even better when the bigger names start commenting.
As the hate came in things started to get so crazy that Dan started getting texts.
Then Deadspin made a typical media whoopsy.
Don’t worry though, Deadspin later caught their mistake and Dan Le Batard was exposed by NBA specialists. Anyway I’m sure the suspect will expose himself by the time I post this but sorry LeBron you didn’t get 121 of 121.
