AP Source: Lebron wins 4th MVP award

(Continued)

“I can see why he loves to play the game,” Wade said. “He can do anything he wants.”

Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers said near the end of the regular season James — who also finished second in voting for this season’s defensive player of the year award — might win this award many, many more times.

“There’s not a better player in the NBA than LeBron and he should win every year,” Rivers said. “He should win in a landslide. There are guys who had great years. Carmelo’s had an amazing year and so has Durant. But there’s no one that’s had the year that LeBron has when you figuring in rebounding, defense, everything, passing. And we’re going to be saying that until someone else comes along and takes the mantle. I don’t see that happening.”
