LeBron James should be named the MVP of the NBA at the end of the season, per Rachel Nichols of ESPN.

According to Nichols, the strength of the argument that James deserves the MVP award is due to his “leadership.”

“We have leaned on stats more and more every year… I do think value comes into play with leadership… the fact that he went out and recruited Anthony Davis, that he has made Anthony Davis so comfortable and into the monster he is,” Nichols said.

The “King”, who is averaging 25.7 points and a career-high 10.6 assists per game this season, and Giannis Antetokounmpo are the favorites to win the MVP Award.

The “Greek Freak” is the reigning MVP of the league.
