We have received confirmation that LeBron James has officially won the 2009-10 NBA Most Valuable Player Award. This will be the 2nd MVP of LeBron’s career. Last year there was much pomp and circumstance surrounding his accepting the award at his Alma mater St Vincent-St Mary High School in Akron. Once again this year, he will be holding his press conference in his hometown, but a slightly different venue.
According to our sources, LeBron will be accepting the MVP trophy this Sunday at the University of Akron, although this has not been confirmed by anyone officially. This will fall between Games 1 and 2 of the Celtics series. While LeBron winning the MVP award is hardly a surprise to anyone, it will be fun once again to see LeBron pay homage to his roots as he accepts this award. We’ll have more details as the official announcements are made, but once again we say congrats to LeBron on a much deserved award in recognition of his importance to this franchise.
(Update 10:40: The press conference regarding the award will be held at the University of Akron, as reported first by WFNY. The trophy presentation will be prior to Game 2 on Monday night)
