I get that it's boring to give the MVP to the same guy year after year, but LeBron is - without a doubt - the best andmost valuable player to any team.
Look at the Cavs before, during, after, then during LeBron again. Lottery team to perennial playoff contender back to lottery team and back again. All because one guy wasn't there anymore.
You could put LeBron on the absolute worst team in the league every year and he would get them to the playoffs. That's what he does, that's who he is. The Most Valuable Player to any team in the NBA.
When Mozgov forgot how to play basketball this year, LeBron carried the weight. When Love forgot to show up for the Finals, LeBron carried him too. The man is an absolute freak of nature, a basketball savant, and a one-of-a-kind talent that we'll probably never see again, like Jordan or Magic or Wilt.
I'm not ready to declare him GOAT (despite my obvious bias) because Jordan was a goddamn machine out there. You wouldn't see Jordan wearing a frog-tea hat or talking shit about the "haters" on social media, Jordan would shut them up on the court then blow $50k in five minutes on the blackjack table while banging your girlfriend in front of you.That's who Jordan was - an animal, an absolutely ice-cold killing machine - and LeBron isn't that same guy. LeBron is nice, he wants to be friends with his competitors off-court, and that's fine too.
Kobe was Jordan Lite. LeBron isn't anything Lite, he's LeBron Raymone James, and he is now and always will be the best player to ever don the Cleveland Cavalier uniform.
And for that, and this title, he's my unanimous MVP.

1. First Important Lesson – “Know The Cleaning Lady”
During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: “What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?”
Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.
“Absolutely,” said the professor. “In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say “hello.”
I’ve never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.
Why don’t car manufacturers make all cars as visually appealing as Ferrari’s or Lamborghini’s?
1.) Form follows function. There’s no way to make a car that looks like an exotic sports car that can still haul 5+ passengers and carry lots of cargo.
2.) Platform sharing. many vehicles in production today share platforms, engineering, chassis designs, etc with other models. Ferrari’s and Lamborghinis have bespoke chassis (although yes the Gallardo does share it’s platform with the also exotic Audi R8). Carmakers want to design a platform that is as versatile as possible and able to used in as many different vehicles. Toyota uses the same design architecture (in various forms) to underpine the Camry, Highlander, Avalon, Venza, Lexus ES, and Lexus RX. Nissan is unique in having designed a platform that can be used on everything from a sports car (370z) to a SUV (Infiniti FX) to a large luxury sedan (Infiniti M). Then again, the 370z does not quite have the same stance as a purebred sports car like an S2000 or Boxster, and the FX is also just about the most car like SUV you’ll find. When you compare the Mustang, Challenger, and Camaro, one key reason the Mustang is several hundred pounds lighter is the Camaro and Challenger are essentially two door sedans (the Camaro sharing it’s platform with the late lamented Pontiac G8 and the Challenger with the Charger), so they are heavier, whereas the Mustang does not and is designed to be a sports coupe. Common architectures/platforms/chassis designs require compromise, and that’s not something Ferrari or Lamborghini have to really do.
3.) Not everyone likes the look. for some people, their car is no different than their washing machine – it’s an appliance. they want something bland and simple that gets the job done. making a bland looking car is also the least offensive and polarizing, and therefore more likely to have the broadest appeal. People are far more likely to buy a car who’s styling has no effect on them than one that they find ugly.
4.) A carmaker may have it’s own design language that it is trying to convey. A Mercedes or a BMW have their own distinct looks that identify the brand, and styling one of their cars to look like a Ferrari or Lamborghini wouldn’t look right. Brand identity is something very important to many carmakers, and they try hard to make their cars recognizably theres. Look at the grill Ford is now putting on all their cars, or Cadillacs vertical headlights and tailights. Same goes for muscle cars like Camaros, Challengers, and Mustangs. They just wouldn’t look right any other way.
