AKRON, Ohio (AP) – LeBron James has won his second straight NBA
MVP award, dominating the voting just as he dominated on court all
The Cleveland Cavaliers star received 116 of a possible 123
first-place votes to win in a landslide Sunday over Oklahoma City
forward Kevin Durant. Durant was picked first on four ballots.
James led the Cavaliers to 61 regular-season wins. He averaged
29.7 points, 8.6 assists and 7.3 rebounds. He is the 10th player to
win consecutive MVP awards.
James had nearly double the point total of Durant in the voting
and was way ahead of Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers. Voting
was done by a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters.
This year one ballot was cast by fans in an online vote.
