On the cusp of a new NBA season, it is time to make predictions about who will take home the league’s biggest awards this season. Due to this summer’s free agency, there has been a lot of chatter around the question of who will take home the MVP.

A number of pundits have decreed that because of Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant’s newfound partnership, the reigning Finals MVP is the clear choice for the award. LeBron James is in agreement and thinks he could challenge for it again.

He was asked Saturday about his concerns regarding rest and whether that would affect his MVP case. The superstar offered: “No. Because Steph played 31 minutes a game and won the MVP.”

Now, the 31-year-old’s stats are a bit off. Curry averaged 32 and 34 minutes respectively in each of his MVP seasons. But, the sentiment is largely unchanged. The 14-year-veteran is still capable of eye-popping stats in such limited time.

The King knows that availability is the best ability and being on the floor is key to bringing home the hardware.

The four-time MVP continued: “So the simple fact that I’ve been able to win four has been an honor, and it’s been a tribute to what I’ve been able to accomplish in my career, but more importantly being able to be on the floor with my teammates.”

James has a ton of trophies already and to claim the one that matters he and his teammates will have to be available most nights. That may not be good for his MVP chances but it’s great for the Cavs title chances.
