Gary Washburn Explains MVP Vote for Carmelo Anthony, Robbing LeBron James of Unanimous Selection (Video)


LeBron James won his fourth NBA MVP award in five years, collecting 120 of the 121 first-place votes. The only first-place vote that didn’t go James’ way was cast by Boston Globe writer Gary Washburn. He placed his vote for Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks.

The Internet exploded with outrage when the announcement was made that James’ award hadn’t been a unanimous decision. Fans had no clue until Monday morning who has placed the lone for Anthony.

Check out the video above to hear Washburn’s reason for voting for Anthony over James.
