Watch the debate below and leave a comment on your thoughts on who you think the NBA Champion will be!
According to ESPN.com, Should the Cleveland Cavaliers fail to dig themselves out of their 3-2 NBA Finals deficit to the Golden State Warriors, LeBron James would not find any consolation in the possibility that he still could be named series MVP in a losing effort.
“I wouldn’t feel good about it at all,” James said after Cavs shootaround in advance of Game 6 on Tuesday night. “Because at the end of the day, I’m here to win a team prize, and that’s to win a championship, not an individual prize.”
His individual dominance, in the face of Cleveland playing without injured All-Stars Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, has fueled the conversation that James could become the first Finals MVP on a losing team since Jerry West won it in 1969, when his Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Boston Celtics in seven games.
