LBJ at MVP level
I’ve seen more of LeBron James’ NBA games in person than all but two or three other media members on this earth. I’ve got to tell you, he’s playing out of his mind.
He might be playing the best basketball of his career, and that’s saying something. Even though Boston’s Kevin Garnett might be the sentimental favorite among the national media right now for the MVP award, James might be playing better.
James is leading the league in scoring. His 45-point effort against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday was a dazzling display.
When he’s making his 3-point shots like he did against the Wolves – he was 6 of 10 from behind the arc – he is almost impossible to defend.
Believe me, he’s been fun to watch. I could have worse jobs than to chronicle the exploits of the 22-year-old megastar. I’m not impressed easily, but he’s definitely on top of his game.
The rest of the Cavs are going along for the ride.
