Were you expecting someone else? LeBron James has continued to amaze while continuing to play under perhaps the most scrutiny any NBA player has ever faced. Last season he led the NBA in field goals made and led all non-post players in field goal percentage. He also became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1988-89 to average 25 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists per game, and cruised to a remarkable fourth MVP award. While his performance was occasionally spotty, LeBron was his usual self in the Finals, winning the MVP after averaging 25.3 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 7.0 assists over the Heat's seven game battle with the Spurs. Quite simply, there is nobody better on the planet.
