MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James is the overwhelming choice as the NBA's Most Valuable Player.
The Miami Heat star took 120 of 121 first-place votes in this year's balloting, giving him the award for the fourth time. Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant finished second and the New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony was third.
James' selection was not unanimous, despite plenty of suggestions from people around the league in recent weeks that he was worthy of that honor. Anthony received the only other first-place vote from a panel of broadcasters and sports writers who cover the league.
The NBA released the results Sunday, when James was presented with the award.
