LeBron James NBA MVP Odds

Note: This snippet is from Matt Moore’s larger MVP piece. See his analysis for all major candidate here. Odds as of Thursday, October 17.

It’s weird to put the player universally regarded as the best player on the planet over the past 10 years in the darkhorse category, but he has to be here. James has openly said he wants to take a backseat to Davis and has fallen over himself to prove his commitment to that.

At the same time, with Davis’ injury history and what appears to a renewed sense of focus and commitment from James than last season, he has to appear here.

Like with Davis, the Lakers’ narrative will be strong, augmented by a media core both with strong L.A. representation and fond memories of the great Lakers teams of old.

That, plus the strong narrative satisfaction of James potentially winning his fifth MVP in a “revenge” year, means he has to be on this list.
