The 25 Best MVP Seasons in NBA History

4. LeBron James (2013)

Team: Miami Heat
Stats: 76 G, 37.9 MPG, 26.8 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 7.3 APG, 1.7 SPG, 0.9 BPG
Player Efficiency Rating: 31.6

In winning his fourth MVP, LeBron would have been the first ever unanimous choice were it not for one Boston writer. Regardless, 120 out of 121 first place votes isn't bad, and it certainly is indicative of how amazing James was this past year. His ability to both facilitate for his teammates while also getting easy baskets for himself is simply remarkable to watch, and his blend of speed and size makes him easily the most unguardable player in the NBA.

His February streak of becoming the first player in history to score 30 points and shoot 60 percent in six consecutive games, as well as the Heat's remarkable 27-game winning streak, solidify this as a gold standard for seasons in which a player's individual accomplishments lift his team to incredible heights.
