Top 10 Least Valuable Players
On Monday, the NBA named LeBron James the MVP of the 2008-09 season.
Of course LeBron was going to win it, and win it in a landslide. King James received 109 of 121 first-place votes. James, 24 years old, became the second-youngest NBA player to win the award (Wes Unseld won it at 23 in 1969).
James averaged 28.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 7.6 assists, 1.15 blocks, and 1.7 steals – all of which were team highs. You want more stats? Just go to this website. The name alone pretty much sums it up: He’s really, really, really, really, really, really good.
LeBron led his team to the best record in the NBA, and was clearly the Most Valuable Player by any measuring stick. But why should the most valuable player be the only one getting an award? What about those on the other end of the spectrum?
From Agent Zero, who played in nearly zero games, to Starbury, who starred as the primary distraction for the Knicks, to our No. 1 player, who somehow managed to hurt three franchises in just one season, it's time to look back at the 2008-2009 NBA season, and count down the Top 10 Least Valuable Players.
