Can he follow it up with a championship ring? LeBron James won his second straight MVP award on Sunday night. The Cleveland Cavaliers star received 116 of 123 first-place votes, with Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant finishing a distant second. "Since I was a kid, I always said I'd find a way to put Akron on the map," James said in comments that are likely to fuel speculation that he’ll leave Cleveland after this season. "It will always be my home and it will always be my life." James became the 10th player to win consecutive MVP awards.
