Sorry, Durant, but your time has not come yet.
Simply put, LeBron is still the best overall player in the league, and even after three MVP awards, he continues to take his game to new heights.
Right now, LeBron is shooting 55 percent from the field and 39 percent from behind the arc, which are both career highs. He has also developed a great post game, one which is still much better than Durant's, and he continues to be one of the strongest and fastest players in the game.
Kevin Durant scores more, he is a much better free-throw shooter, and there's no doubt that he is a fantastic player who may very well win an MVP of his own one day. But the fact of the matter is, LeBron rebounds better, he takes care of the ball, and he is much better as both a perimeter and post defender than Durant is.
In addition to that, you can probably say at this point that Durant actually has the better supporting cast. Westbrook is now much better than Wade, Ibaka and Bosh are debatable, and Kevin Martin is having a much better season than Ray Allen. LeBron means more to his team than Durant does, and considering this is the most valuable player award, that needs to be accounted for.
In the end, there is no denying that LeBron is still the best that the NBA has to offer. Maybe people will get tired of his dominance and hand over the award to Durant, but that's really Durant's only hope at this point. As long as LeBron continues to produce and the Heat continue to win, nobody can steal the MVP award from this point forward.
