Move over LeBron, the Thunder’s Kevin Durant is this year’s Most Valuable Player in the NBA.
Durant was the obvious pick, earning 119 of the 125 first-place votes. Miami’s LeBron James came in second after receiving those other six first-place votes.
The Thunder forward finished the regular season with an average of 32 points per game, 5.5 assists a game and 7.45 rebounds per game. He’s just the fourth player in the league’s history to perform at that level.
Michael Jordan was the last player to hit those numbers. That was in the 1988-89 season.
In honor of his accomplishment, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin declared May 6, 2014 as ‘Kevin Durant Day’ in Oklahoma.
