Why LeBron James deserves this year's NBA MVP

NBA Rumors: Knicks To Pursue LeBron James This Summer After Jeff Hornacek's Likely Exit, Per 'Bleacher Report'

Overview: Pelicans forward Anthony Davis has been unbelievable in the way he's carried his team since the devastating season-ending Achilles injury to center DeMarcus Cousins, but he didn't do quite enough to catch Houston's James Harden. Rose got hurt, quit the team.

There was a team meeting that destroyed the team. It's not just about me, it's for the next crew.

This will be an exciting first round matchup, as both teams come in looking different but still as successful as last season to find themselves in the playoffs another year.

He averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game. For all of the philosophical changes to the way the game is played from a tactical perspective, no scheme is good enough on its own to counteract the impact James has just for suiting up for the opposing team.

Love and the Cavs, who used 30 starting lineups in the regular season, should also benefit from being fully healthy for one of the few times in 2017-18. And I just feel like his body of work makes me feel very confident and comfortable saying that. No superstar has gone through more this year - the loss of his No. 2 star, the Isaiah Thomas saga, Kevin Love's injury, the revamped roster, the coaching saga - and because of this, no superstar has been forced to shoulder more of the load for his team. The Pacers have a fast-paced offense that can exploit the Cavs in a hurry. Toronto is going to face the Washington Wizards in the opening round of the playoffs. Led by Victor Oladipo, they shocked everybody with their prolific offense and high energy.

You've heard the players themselves say it: This year has been like two seasons: One before the Trade Deadline and one after.

"In my opinion, he is the best player to have ever played our sport". Two rotation players - Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. - have never played a playoff game. This team doesn't know each other.

And Lue kept his word.

We will have to wait it see if LeBron James and company can make some magic one more time. Cleveland won 4-0 by an average of four points per game. After hearing all of this how can you not crown LeBron as the MVP? Now, with Irving in Boston, it's clear Love and James need each other for the franchise to reach its fourth straight NBA Finals.

When the Cavs wrapped up their four-game sweep of the Pacers previous year, it marked the 21st straight First Round victory for LeBron James, who's last loss came against JR Smith and the Knicks back in 2012.

"We've got a chance", James said. "It's well-documented we only have four guys left from that (2016) championship team (James, Love, Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith), but we have a lot of veteran, savvy guys with a ton of experience. That's all you can ask for".
