VIDEO: LeBron James is making the race for the KIA MVP trophy more interesting by the day
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — His fingerprints are all over the trophies from the past two years, just the way LeBron James planned it all those years ago in Akron, Ohio when he was dreaming of being the global superstar he has become.
His connection to Northeast Ohio, damaged after “The Decision,” is stronger than ever (hence the “Come Home LeBron” campaign). For the folks who have watched LeBron’s evolution from the start, it makes perfect sense even if it doesn’t for the rest of us.
They are the same people who can’t make sense of his placement anywhere other than the very top of the KIA Race to the MVP Ladder, never mind that we’re just a month into the marathon.
Chris Paul still owns the No. 1 spot this week but there isn’t much separation between the Los Angeles Clippers’ point guard and the pack of Kevin Durant, James, Paul George, and Tony Parker in the top five.
