My early season MVP is LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers are far and away at this point. The best team. They have the best roster. LeBron is the best player on the best team. I just don't think any of the other candidates have a strong case simply because of a either. Statistically, they haven't been at their peak or their team is not having the kind of success that you would typically think of as an M V P type team. So LeBron.
