BREAKING NEWS: LeBron James Wins 2nd MVP Award

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)

    I thought Derrick Rose was the MVP, based on the cheers in Chicago?

    “Oh, Eddie… If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.

  • Chris

    congrats Lebron. How hard would it be to accept the MVP award at the quicken Arena in the city you play in? I don’t remember another NBA MVP accepting their award in a different city. Ultimately, I don’t care but its just an observation.

  • Charlie

    Tarence Kinsey where art thou? Oh yeah, playing for Fenerbahçe Ülker (The Yellow Canaries) in Turkey. I forgot.

  • stin4u

  • Oppie

    @Denny. I was just asking myself that same thing.

    Hopefully this won’t be the last of the hardware that Lebron receives this season.

  • Billy Thomas

    I just hope Stan Van Gundy doesn’t pull a Kanye West.

  • cavsloverrrr

    they were cheering for rose because thats their opinion.. like LA calls Kobe the mvp… but hey we know the truth now lol & he might want to go to akron because its his HOMEtown doesnt matter that he plays in cleveland

  • Matt#2

    I say accepting the award in Akron is wise.

  • http://waitingfornextyear.com Denny

  • Vare-A-Jay

    Does that mean Lebron’s elbow will win Comeback Player of the Year?

  • Scotty

  • Harv 21

    And in other news, Spurs eliminate Mavs. Making me giddy, imagining look on Cuban’s face.

    Just had to share, sorry for hijack.

  • Jack

    @216in614 – Nice one.

    @Billy Thomas – Also nice. “Sorry LeBron, i’mma let ya finish…but Dwight Howard had one of the best defensive seasons of all time…OF ALL TIME!” [fat man shrug]

  • The Other Tim

    If LeBron James signed an extension that stated that the Cavs had to play their home games in Akron, I’d be okay with that.

    Probably because I live in Los Angeles.

  • historycat

    So, when do we find out which orlando, boston, and Chicago homers had their ballot filled out before the season even started?

    /Congrats Lebron, We’re all pulling for you.

  • omnikaush

    BIG SURPRISE

    But seriously, I’m happy for LeBron. Hopefully he can get that other MVP award too :)

  • Chuck

    Maybe he’s saving the acceptance in Cleveland for his 3rd MVP.
