With the NBA season currently being suspended, here are three reasons why LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers should be the MVP so far.

With the NBA season currently being suspended because of the coronavirus for the Los Angeles Lakers, we are all anxiously waiting for the season to resume so we can crown a champion.

After years of struggles, the Lakers are finally back to where they want to be, which is on top of the Western Conference. Despite being one of the best teams in the NBA, the Lakers were getting the reputation of not being able to beat the best teams in the league.

However, the Lakers were able to change that opinion with some big wins against the Los Angeles Clippers and the Milwaukee Bucks. Wins against the top teams in the league proved that the Lakers were a true contender and also that they had a true MVP candidate on their squad.

In his second season with the Lakers, LeBron James is playing at an MVP level and has thrown himself squarely in the discussion to win the award. In his career, James is no stranger to winning MVPs, and he could very well be looking to win another one.

After missing the playoffs last season and his first season in Los Angeles being a failure, James was certainly motivated to have a great season. That motivation has resulted in a great season for LeBron, as he is averaging 25.7 points, 10.6 assists, and 7.9 rebounds per game.

Even though the season is currently suspended, we will surely have awards no matter what happens in the next few months. With that being said, here are three reasons why LeBron should win the MVP.
