Who else was voted MVP? Ballot breakdown here

Congratulations to LeBron James on winning his third MVP award. Now go win a title.

Seriously.

Neither of us is getting any younger.

As avid readers of this site are aware, I cast my MVP vote for Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers, for reasons stated in this column. Five other voters agreed with me from a cast of 121 voters – sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada, as well as an NBA.com MVP fan vote.

James collected 85 first-place votes. Kevin Durant was 2nd in the voting with 22 first-place votes, Paul was third, Kobe Bryant was fourth (with two first-place votes) and Tony Parker was fifth with four first-place votes.

Here are the complete voting totals:

      Seriously, what so called professional NBA journalist gave LeBron a fifth place?

      Not even close to being a Heat lover, but respect for what he did this year, and maybe i can see someone voting Paul or Durant but LeBron as not even the third best is ridiculous.

      And that just busted my cherry as the first time i have backed LeBron on line….
