We now know who didn’t vote for LeBron James. It was Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. LeBron got all the votes for the 2013 NBA MVP Award except one. If he would have been a unanimous selection, it would have been the first unanimous MVP vote in the history of the NBA. Alas, it didn’t happen.
Gary Washburn instead voted for Carmelo Anthony. While the New York Knicks superstar had a very good season, it’s clear that LeBron James was better and more valuable. Honestly, you can’t even compare to the two players; their not even on the same level. The Miami Heat’s legend is simply far superior in every aspect of the game.
For the record, Gary Washburn is trying to say Carmelo Anthony was more valuable even if LeBron James is the better player. I don’t buy it. It’s not a coincidence that a writer from the Heat’s biggest rival is the one who ruined a unanimous vote.
Well played, Gary Washburn. But let’s not pretend you didn’t know exactly what you were doing.
