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:

in my opinion lebron and the cavs will win the championship also, but we’ll see…

NBA All Star Game 2009

February 15, 2009

nba all star game

the halfway point in the nba season was celebrated with the annual all star game. the 2009 all star weekend and game was held in phoenix. on saturday night at the dunk contest nate robinson was able to take the throne from last years winner dwight howard. the three point contest was won by miami’s daequan cook and derrick rose won the skills competition. in my opinion the most exciting part of saturday nights festivities was when lebron james told cheryl miller he will be entering the 2010 slam dunk contest. we’ll see if he stays true to his word, but if he does indeed enter the slam dunk contest next year its already over.

sunday night was the actual game. though competitive throughout, the west dominated the east with its size to lead them to an easy victory. the final score was 146 – 119 and shaq and kobe were named the co-mvps of the game, playing on the same team for the first time since 2004. kobe bryant led all scorers with 27 points and lebron james had 20 points.
