Sunday, LeBron James won his fourth Most Valuable Player award in five years, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (six), Michael Jordan (five), Bill Russell (five) and Wilt Chamberlain (four) as the only players in NBA history to win the award at least four times. The nine-year veteran needs two more to tie Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most MVP awards in league history, something the NBA legend thinks he’s more than capable of doing.
According to Chris Tomasson, Fox Sports Florida:
“As long as LeBron stays healthy and keeps playing the game at a high level, he, of course, could break my record,’’ Abdul-Jabbar wrote in an email to FOX Sports Florida minutes after James had been awarded his latest trophy. “The challenges he faces are getting injured or losing interest.’’
