I would have voted for LeBron, but I’m not surprised a Warrior won the award. Plenty of voters just don’t like the idea of rewarding someone on the losing team.

Still, I thought LeBron would have a chance because Golden State would split votes. More than anything, I’m shocked Stephen Curry didn’t get a single vote.
