There are little things we could say about LeBron James that haven't been said already. It goes without saying that he's one of the greatest athletes of all time, a born-winner, and a unique talent like we may never see again in the NBA.
Then again, it feels like somehow, we're just taking LeBron for granted. Sometimes it's just incredible that he's not the MVP, and not because of the winners are undeserving but because of how impactful he's for his teams.
In fact, Chris Palmer recently noted that The King has only been outside of the Top 5 in MVP voting twice on his career: during his rookie season, and last year when he was injured. That's a testament of how durable he's been over 17 years:
LeBron James each year in MVP voting:
2004: 9th (Rookie)
2019: 11th (Injured)
Don't get me wrong, I do believe Giannis Antetokounmpo is deserving of his MVP. Then again, the fact that James has been able to stay dominant and relevant for almost two decades speaks volumes. Give credit where credit's due: LeBron James has been the NBA's true MVP for a very, very, long time.
