LeBRON JAMES is getting his fourth Most Valuable Player award - and the only mystery left is whether the vote was unanimous.
The Miami Heat star will be introduced tomorrow as the winner, according to a person familiar with the results who spoke on condition of anonymity. James will become the fifth player with at least four MVP awards, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain.
No one has ever swept every first-place vote in the NBA's MVP balloting. After the season he had, James could be the first.
"I don't know who else you'd vote for," Heat forward Chris Bosh said. "No offense to everybody else, but that's just how good he has played this year."
If tradition holds, commissioner David Stern will present James with the trophy Monday night in front of the Miami fans.
"I absolutely have not even thought about it," James said when asked if he considered the weight of winning the award four times in 5 years. "I know the history. It would be a unique, unbelievable class I would be a part of, so we'll see."
