Lebron James is one of the most decorated players in NBA history. He has won four MVP awards, tying him with Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for second all time behind only Michael Jordan’s six.
Lebron James also holds the record for most consecutive finals appearances at 6, which includes 4 victories. He became just the third player in NBA history to lead both teams in points, rebounds and assists per game in a single postseason alongside Rick Barry (1975) and Jerry West (1969).
He is the youngest player in league history to win four MVPs
Lebron James is the youngest player in league history to win four MVPs. At 33 years and 11 months old, he eclipsed Magic Johnson’s record, who was 34 years and 10 months old when he earned his fourth MVP award. What makes this even more impressive is the fact that he accomplished this feat in just 14 seasons, while Magic Johnson played 19 seasons.
His first award was for his performance during the 2004-2005 season
Earned his first MVP award in 2004-2005 season for triple-double average of 30.0 points, 11.3 assists and 10.6 rebounds per game, which marked the only time anyone has averaged at least 30 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds while shooting 50% from the field over a full season.
The next two were for consecutive seasons, leading up to the 2007-2008 season
The next two were for consecutive seasons, leading up to the 2007-2008 season. In that season, he led the Cavaliers to their first championship and was named Finals MVP. The following season, he repeated as MVP and led the Cavaliers to their second consecutive championship.
Lebron’s last three awards have been consecutive as well
Lebron’s last three awards have also been consecutive, meaning he’s won four in the past seven seasons. His most recent award was for his stellar play during the 2016-2017 season when he averaged 26.4 points, 8.3 assists, and 8.0 rebounds per game while shooting 54% from the field, becoming just the third player in NBA history (alongside Oscar Robertson and Larry Bird) to lead his team in all three categories for an entire season. That year he led Cleveland to their second championship in franchise history and became the first player in league history to lead both teams in points, rebounds and assists per game during a single postseason.
In 2012 he became one of only six players with at least 3 consecutive MVPs
In 2012, Lebron James became one of only six players with at least 3 consecutive MVP awards. The other five players are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, and Steve Nash.
How many rings Lebron have
LeBron James has four rings from his four MVP awards. It is an impressive feat to win four MVPs and win a ring every time. He is only behind Michael Jordan in how many he has, with six.
It’s impossible to deny how much Lebron James has changed the game of basketball. He is one of the most decorated players in NBA history, and he’s defied expectations with each new season by raising his game even higher than before. With four MVP Awards already under his belt, it will be interesting to see how many more rings he wins for himself over the next few years.
Not many people had heard of Lebron James when he first entered the league, yet he’s quickly climbed up the ladder in terms of how good players in the NBA can be. He certainly isn’t one of the most decorated players in NBA history, but at only 29 years old, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he became one. Winning four MVP Awards in the past seven seasons is an impressive accomplishment, and it’s clear that Lebron James is still among the best players in the league.
