    Sports Perspective: Kevin Durant outshining LeBron in MVP race

    For four of the last five seasons, the highly coveted NBA MVP award has been deservedly bestowed upon LeBron James.

The only player to even come close to resembling a threat to James’ growing MVP trophy collection has been Kevin Durant, a somewhat one-dimensional scorer who has been the runner up in MVP voting during three of James’ four tenures. This season, however, Durant has had enough of being second best.
