Can you believe the regular season is almost over?! Playoffs are right around the corner which mean the MVP talk is heating up. It’s pretty much been a battle between LeBron James & Kevin Durant all season, so what does LeBron think now?!
Hit the jump to see what he had to say….
James was asked whether he thought Durant was the MVP front-runner entering the final games of the regular season.
“I would say he’s the most consistent basketball player as far as the MVP this year, man,” James said. “He’s put up some great numbers.”
James, a four-time MVP who won the award each of the past two seasons, addressed Durant’s season before theMiami Heat’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.
“I think KD has had one heck of a season,” James said of Durant, the league’s leading scorer. “And, you know, if he’s rewarded with the MVP, it would be great. It would be awesome for him, for his family. He’s played MVP-type basketball. I don’t really get caught up into what people say. At the end of the day, they have their own votes and they go from there.”
