NBA MVP: The Five Biggest Snubs of the Past 30 Years

His team currently has the best record in the NBA and appears to be the front-runner to win the championship.

He's averaging 29.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, 8.6 assists, and shooting over 50 percent from the field.

He's the face of the NBA and the single most important athlete in America.

And yet, LeBron James is no lock to win the Most Valuable Player award.

Sad, isn't it?

Unfortunately, the sportswriters who get to vote for MVP are human beings with opinions, biases, and agendas. Some may hate James because he's too playful and appears attention-seeking.

Others may be diehard Kobe Bryant fans who'll scream, "He's scoring 27 points per game with a broken finger!"

Some may argue Oklahoma City's 20-plus win improvement and Kevin Durant's potential scoring title makes him the no-brainer choice. Others will say this is the year Carmelo Anthony is finally recognized.

Some will say Dwight Howard's defense trumps anyone's offense. Others will say Dwyane Wade does more with less than any other player around.

You get the picture.

In the end, there is only one MVP award winner named each season. This means many players have been slighted. Let's take a look at the five biggest MVP snubs of the past 30 years.
