    Only player to make the jump from 6th man to MVP.

    Walton did the reverse, went from MVP to 6th man later in his career

    Kyrie Irving Says LeBron Was the 2017-18 MVP

    Kyrie Irving says that James Harden was the “people’s MVP,” but LeBron James was the “NBA’s MVP” during the 2017-18 season.

    While guesting on HOT 97 on Wednesday, Kyrie said that LeBron “checks every mark” statistically for his team.

    Do you like that James Harden got the MVP?

    Kyrie: “I was happy for him.”

    Do you agree?

    Kyrie: “I didn’t vote. I didn’t vote. I think MVP is hard to gauge nowadays because now you have the people’s MVP and the NBA’s MVP.

    “I think the people’s MVP was definitely James, but the NBA MVP was definitely Bron.”

    So you think LeBron should have gotten the MVP.

    Kyrie: “I mean, if we’re talking strictly based off stats, he checks every mark.”

    It’s him every year, though, in that regard. Does anyone do more for a team than LeBron does?

    Kyrie: [Shakes head] “I don’t know. He’s incredible.”

    Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving said he's "happy" that James Harden received the league's MVP award but believes that former teammate LeBron James deserved strong consideration for the honor, too.

    "MVP, it's hard to gauge nowadays. Because now you have the people's MVP and you have, like, the NBA's MVP," Irving told radio station Hot 97 in New York on Wednesday. "I think the people's MVP was definitely James [Harden], but the NBA MVP is definitely LeBron [James]."

    When asked by an interviewer if he thinks James -- and not Harden -- should've received the MVP award, Irving said: "If we're talking strictly based off stats, like he checks every mark. ... He's incredible, he's incredible."

    Harden was revealed as the MVP winner on Monday after twice being the runner-up. He was the league's scoring champ this season, averaging 30.4 points while leading the Rockets to a franchise-record 65 victories.

    James was denied his fifth MVP trophy despite averaging 27.5 points and career highs of 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds while playing in all 82 regular-season games for the first time in his career.

    Sorry Kyrie, both the NBA Players and Media voted Harden MVP.

    Cowherd and ESPN Stats & Info voted LeBron MVP.

    Crazy that this could (and should have in my opinion) been his THIRD MVP....

    Glad he won it but a little bittersweet considering the season we had and how it ended.

    Crazy that Harden winning the MVP has created an MVP crisis for the NBA.

    Every talk show I've listened to has essentially said he either didn't deserve it or he deserved it only because the award is flawed and doesn't account for the most important part of the season (playoffs.) They've all been pushing their own new awards.

    Where was this MVP outrage when Westbrook won it and got bounced last year?

    I was just about to post how moronic Kyrie or out of the loop he is for saying this when in fact his brethren voted Harden the PLAYERS MVP

    I love arguing with people about Hardens MVP. I simply ask them what more could Harden have done? He won 65 games so I’m assuming he must win at least 72 while leading the nba in points and assists.

    Legler and his partner yesterday agreed that Harden will only get this one. That basically nobody really likes Harden and they don't think he really deserves it because of the playoffs so the media will never give him another one.

    I've given up thinking about that craziness. I'm just looking for James to up his game even more to make the simplest of people realize how far ahead of the curve he is.

    Haters should stfu. Best player on a team with most victory in the league. No amount of moving the goal post could deny him this time.

    It really is amazing. And it really does show how much Harden isn't liked. Or how his efficient game isn't appreciated.

    You could make this LeBron argument over the last 5 years. You could have made it against Curry and against Westbrook etc. But the media didn't.

    Just too bad that for 1 season the media can't just give Harden his due throughout.

    I just take solace in the fact Harden won the award, 86-15. It is his, no matter what. FU to the talking heads.

    Now that we got that out of the way (and 3 years too late), let's go get us a ring!
