King James to be Crowned 2009 NBA MVP

LeBron James beat out Dwayne Wade & Kobe Bryant for a well-deserved first MVP award for his 2009 season.  At 24, LeBron is the youngest MVP candidate since Moses Malone did so in 1979.  James led the Cleveland Cavaliers to a team-record 66 wins this season and the best overall record in the NBA.  Lebron will accept the award this afternoon at his Alma-matter St. Mary’s High School in Akron Ohio.  Averaging 28.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game, Lebron James will be the first ever Cavalier to win this prestigious award.  After sweeping their Eastern Conference rivals the Detroit Pistons in the first round, LeBron and the Cavaliers look to do more of the same against a tougher upstart Atlanta Hawks team in the second round begining  Tuesday evening.

Allen Iverson heading to Detroit

NBA superstar Allen Iverson of the Denver Nuggets it seems will be traded to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Chauncey Billups and Antonio Mcdyess.  The Pistons already had a talented backcourt with Billups and Richard Hamilton, with the addition of A.I. the Pistons may have the most explosive backcourt in the league.  The Nuggets will gain a more “true” point guard with former NBA finals MVP Chauncey Billups and also Mcdyess can fill the void left by Marcus Camby who was picked up by the L.A. Clippers in the off-season.  This is definately a blockbuster trade pulled off by Joe Dumars only a few games into the season and expect The Pistons to challenge the defending champion Celtics in the East once again this year.
