LeBron won his third MVP, joining some pretty stellar company. He said all the right things, noting that the Miami has a bigger goal. Did that stop people from going the "No rings" route?

Lebron is, as ever, an easy target but he really could not have handled this whole thing better. And, as ever, no one cared.

At a news conference Saturday, James called his teammates to join him on the stage and said his individual award was the result of a team effort. Despite joining an elite group of NBA players who have been named MVP three times, James said his real goal is to win a championship.

"I would give all three of them back for an NBA championship," he said.

"Yeah right," Twitter said.
