Lebron James won his first NBA MVP trophy in his 6th year in the NBA and it was not even close. 

King James finished with 109 of the possible 121 first place votes.  He had the ceremony held in his high school gymnasium.  Lebron said "This is a place where all my dreams started and where I thought they could become real, "There's really not a better place."

Lebron and the Cleveland Cavaliers will take care of play the Atlanta Hawks starting Tuesday in the 1nd round of the playoffs.

Congrats to Lebron.-Dr.FB

Ok, I know basketball season doesn't really start until after the all star break and unless it's Boston versus L.A. or Lebron versus Kobe, it's usually not worth mentioning. Unless you break a record held by Michael Jordan.

I joked at the office today that Kobe would have to drop a double nickel (55 points) against the Knicks, something Jordan has done twice.  Well, Kobe proved me semi-right as he put up a Madison Square Garden record 61 points!  Bernard King techically had the record with 60 until Kobe broke it with a little over 3 minutes to spare.

Chants of MVP and standing ovations  for Kobe as he electrified the crowd as an injured Andrew Bynum watched with crutches from the bench.  Bynum is expected to be out 12 weeks like we reported earlier, but will he be slow to recover like he did last year?  Laker fans can enjoy the night, but we will be having nights like this in June?-Dr.FB
