The NBA named Miami Heat forward LeBron James its Most Valuable Player for the 2013 season on Sunday. It was the fourth time in five years James, 28, has won the award. A day before the Heat were to begin the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Chicago Bulls, James joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain, as the only players in league history to win the award at least four times. Abdul-Jabbar won a record six MVP awards.

 

James received 120 of a possible 121 votes. He averaged 26.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists this season. James won his other MVP trophies in 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Only James and Russell have won the award four times in five years. James’ recent streak was interrupted by Derrick Rose of the Bulls in 2011. James and the Heat will continue their quest for a second consecutive NBA title — and third straight trip to the NBA Finals — when they face the Bulls in Miami on Monday night.
