I don't think he took it as much in stride as it seemed. His mom was furious about it on twitter and hinted that he was too.
 
Now if the Wizards can find some way to bring him back home, THAT will be an NBA title team.

 
Ohh, he was clearly pissed... but he had the sense to frame his answer appropriately. I respect that. He didn't immediately lash out. If he channels that irritation... good for him.


 


Totally. I've heard he's pretty mature for his age, despite being a little bit of a goofball. Handled it well.

Surprised it wasn't closer.

I'm not really surprised. Durant had separated himself down the stretch... and I think people may have been ready to vote someone other than LeBron so long as they were mildly deserving... and he was more than that, obviously.

 

Interesting that their PER is still so close though, so from that standpoint, It could have been closer. Happy for KD though, very much deserving.

Well stated!!

 

Good for KD. He has been the second best player in the league for a few years now, and I'm sure this means the world to him.

Anyone who hasn't watched his MVP speech should do so. It's very moving.

Wow, awesome. Thanks for sharing. Pretty awesome story about Caron Butler. Had no idea he was the type to do something like that.

That MVP speech was really fantastic. He seems like a great guy that has grown up a lot and understands how fortunate he is and has a good perspective on life in general. Good for him.

Pau should go to OKC...For some reason, that isn't likely.

The Thunder were estimated to be the 5th most profitable team last year making 29 million. Yeah, they couldn't afford Harden. What a joke.
