LeBron James wins two awards during NBPA Players' Awards night

Published Add your comment

The NBPA Players' Awards took place on Twitter last night and LeBron James scooped two titles.

The MVP went to Stephen Curry as the voting had been done before the playoffs began, but 'the King' claimed the awards of The Player You Secretly Wish Was On Your Team and Best Social Media Follow.

It's no surprise James was voted the player most would wish was on their team, he is head and shoulders above the rest. While Stephen Curry is an elite pro and an incredible scorer, LeBron can do it all, his sheer athleticism puts him in a world of his own and he is reaching Michael Jordan levels of greatness following his performance in the finals.

His record on the biggest stage may be 3-4, but his performances have never been in doubt. Leading all players in assists, points and rebounds in the losing effort of 2015 had never been heard of and his showing in game six this year, where he scored 41 points, shot 16-27 from the field, provided 11 assists and pulled down eight rebounds was mesmerising.

Let's not forget his incredible blocks in game seven.

As for best social media follow, it was a crazy year for LeBron that included cryptic tweets, strange Instagram posts then a social media blackout as he entered playoff mode, before returning after game seven to poke fun at his critics.

It was a whirlwind year for James and the Cavaliers both on the court and on social media, but it was thoroughly entertaining to watch.
