Lebron for MVP? Dont Bank on it!
Some people seem to be under the impression that Lebron James deserves this without question. That’s incorrect. Lebron is certainly displaying some top tier talent that has been bottled up. He’s been putting up dazzling numbers all season long, However when it comes to crunch time he’s MIA (literally and figuratively). There are certain “tools of the trade” that can be taught no matter how bad or good a player is. Can’t hit a free throw for the life of you? There’s an app for that, Can’t throw it in the ocean? App for that too! Can’t play defense? Yep! There’s one for that as well. However, You can’t teach heart! You can’t teach a player to “win at all costs”. Certain players are just born with it or develop it in their youth (Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Kobe to name a few). But when the game is on the line? Lebron has no heart or will to just take it on his own and accept the criticism. He wants everyone to love him. He also has that other player you may have heard of named Wade who can close out games ala Mariano Rivera.
