LeBron for MVP

by james on December 15th, 2007

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo Sports lists his early trophy winners. Also included are NBA Obsessed views.

MVP: LeBron James, Cleveland. If you had any doubts about his sheer force, all you had to see was what the Cavaliers looked like without him on the floor for 5½ games. Without LeBron, the Cavs wouldn’t win the Big Ten. Seriously, he’s been playing on a level unseen in the sport in years. One of these years, he’s going to threaten Oscar Robertson’s feat of chasing a triple-double average for the season. source

NBA Obsessed view: Triple Double? Average a Triple Double? Big O did it in a different generation, so it is hard to compare. Most players never even get 1 Triple Double.

“Every year he has promised to come back better, and he’s done it again,” Cavaliers forward Donyell Marshall said.

Clearly, the Team USA experience has broadened James’ perspective on greatness. He’s used the time with the best players in the world to become a better shooter, and more determined defender. Like the Magic Johnsons and Larry Birds before him, James takes the time to add something to his game every offseason. That used to be the norm in the sport, but James is bringing it back.

NBA Obsessed view: One great thing about LeBron is his willingness to get better. This helps separate him from others.

Rookie of the Year: Kevin Durant, Seattle. Everyone knew he was an extraordinary talent, but lately Durant has shown flashes that simply leave you breathless. The next Jordan? Only LeBron was so good, so fast.

NBA Obsessed view: When they compare you to the incomparable LeBron, what more needs to be said.

Coach of the Year: Jim O’Brien, Indiana. After taking over one of the most dysfunctional teams in the league, O’Brien has delivered structure and purpose to the Pacers.

NBA Obsessed view: Jim O’Brien is doing a good job, but what about Sam Mitchell at Toronto. Who is even on that team besides Bosh?

Executive of the Year: Danny Ainge, Celtics. He has taken his share of hits in this space, but this is an easy one. Beyond the obvious of Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, Ainge did a terrific job of constructing a useful bench after trading so many players and picks to get his two new stars.

NBA Obsessed view: Hands down, Danny has pulled it off. This team has the potential to win it all.
