The fans walk away with this messed up idea that MJ single-handedly won 6 titles, or that LBJ is the reason for Miami's success.
It's a team sport, and there shouldn't be an MVP award. Teams should get awards for best defense, or even best offense. There's no room for individual achievement.
I agree, but I think it's in the basis of human want for a Greatest, or ONE leader, or something. Think about it, Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, MJ, maybe ESPN wants LeBron to be the next greatest? The point is, there never will be the "greatest" human being, and that's probably partly why things like sports or other things aren't doing great, is because of the focus on "one" person. I agree, it's a team thing. In case of religion, it shouldn't be about one person or one group of people, it should be about the human race as a whole. In case of sports, it shouldn't be about MVP, it should only be about the championship.
