LeBron humbled to win back-to-back MVPs

CLEVELAND, (Reuters) – Winning the NBA’s Most  Valuable Player trophy for the second year in a row had been a  humbling experience, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James said yesterday.

The NBA has not officially announced James as the recipient  but he confirmed at a pre-game session with reporters that he  would receive the award in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, today.

“It’s another humbling experience for myself,” James said  before the Cavaliers played the Boston Celtics in an Eastern  Conference semi-final game.

“It’s really hard to kind of grasp, honestly. You put in a  lot of hard work as an individual, you get an opportunity to  showcase your talent on the floor every night and to do it with  team mates that you love in a city that you love, it’s great.”
