lebron james has been named the 2009 nba mvp. at 24 years old, lebron is the youngest player to be awarded the mvp since moses malone took home the honors in 1979.
on the season james averaged 28.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.2 assists. he received 109 out of 121 first place votes to easily beat out kobe bryant for the mvp.
lebron had the following to say during his acceptance speech:
“i’m 24 years old. to be up here and win this mvp award, i never thought it would happen this fast.”
in my opinion lebron and the cavs will win the championship also, but we’ll see…
