It's pathetic, nba.com's "Race for the MVP" had Durant #1 for just TWO WEEKS, every other week they had LeBron, even though OKC was clearly the better team for most of the season, and their statistical numbers weren't that far apart.
When Kobe went on a TEAR during that 05/06 season, he finished THIRD in the race, because the voters felt that it should go to "the best player in the best team". That's why the picked Rose last year.
What happens this year? The best team is San Antonio, and their best player has been Tony Parker (who statistically has been great too), but somehow they can't overlook LeBron's "incredible impact" or "historic statistical season".. JOKE.
They are all incredibly impressed that LeBron is shooting like 53% from the field, and it is impressive, but IMO Durant's FG% is more impressive. LeBron isn't really a "perimeter player", he scores HALF is points in the paint, goes to the FT line more often that everyone else, and leads the league in fast break points. THAT'S why he shoots such a high FG%. Durant, meanwhile, shoots almost 50$ from the field, but his shots are much more difficult, they demand much more skill, he shoots a lot more 3s (and shoots a higher 3pt%)... He doesn't get the same amount of calls as LeBron (though he does get a lot more calls than Kobe, that's for sure), he takes a lot of jumpshots, and has to suffer Westbrook's chucking..
