LeBron on MVP voting: 'It pissed me off'

After the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, LeBron James was asked about receiving only 16 first-place votes for MVP. The King let loose.

"It pissed me off. That's my true answer," James said. "It pissed me off because out of 101 votes, I got 16 first-place votes. That's what pissed me off more than anything. Not saying that the winner (Giannis Antetokounmpo) wasn't deserving of the MVP, but that pissed me off.

"I've finished second a lot in my career, either from a championship, now four times as an MVP (candidate). I never came into this league saying let me be MVP or be a champion. I've always just said I want to get better and better every single day, and those things will take care of itself. But some things are just out of my hands, some things you can't control. But it pissed me off."

ANALYSIS: LeBron has a gripe with past MVP snubs, and he's been the greatest player in the NBA consistently for the past decade. No matter what your opinion is on the ruling this year, 16 votes is pretty light for a transcendent player like him.
