LeBron on Kyrie Irving’s MVP Chances


LeBron James is always a leading candidate to win MVP, but could his teammate and all world point guard steal the trophy from him?

According to James, Irving has no weaknesses in his game, and the King believes Irving could easily win the award.

With Irving averaging 25 points through the season’s first three games, James says Why not:

Per the Akron Beacon Journal:

“Why not?” asked James, who famously predicted last season that Irving could have MVP awards in his future. “His ability to lead a team and his ability to score and get guys involved, we’re going to continue to improve as a team, we’re going to be right up there with the league leaders in wins, so why not?

“I think the sky’s the limit for the kid. He’s only [24] years old … He hasn’t even gotten to his prime yet.”

All three of the Cavs’ stars — James, Irving and Kevin Love — are averaging at least 20 points per game. Whether that is sustainable remains to be seen, but James sees great potential in Irving. […] “He doesn’t have any weaknesses, especially offensively,” James said. “He’s been great so far. If guys take away his driving lanes he’s able to create off the dribble, make pull-up jumpers. He can shoot the 3-ball, too, so he doesn’t have any weaknesses offensively so it doesn’t matter.”
