LeBron James added to his trophy case this postseason with his fourth MVP award, his second NBA Finals MVP award, and his second championship trophy.
Add those to his Rookie-of-the-Year trophy and two All-Star game MVP trophies, and he now has 11 trophies. Only six players in the NBA history have won more trophies*.
Of course, recent players have a distinct advantage when it comes to trophies as the Defensive Player of the Year award has only been around since 1982-83 and the NBA didn’t start naming Finals MVPs until 1968-69. Bill Russell won his final championship during the 1968-69 season and it is safe to say he would probably have 10-15 more trophies if both of those awards were available in his day.
Still, LeBron is only 28, and there is a good chance he will be in the top 3-4 by the end of next season…
* Min. one MVP award; Trophies include MVP, NBA Finals MVP, All-Star MVP, Coach of the Year, Championships, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, and Sixth Man of the Year
