Washington Wizards coach Scott Brooks believes that LeBron James should have won nine NBA MVP awards by now. The Wizards last lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 125-103 on Friday night at the Staples Center. James finished the game with 23 points, 3 rebounds, and 11 assists. After the game, Brooks praised both, the Lakers and James, in a post-match interview. He called the Lakers the current best team in NBA. He added that if the league was not tired by giving James the MVP award, he should have nine of them by now. James has won the NBA MVP four times in his career – 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013.
