Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James opened as the betting favorite for 2018-19 NBA MVP.

However, James finished second in the MVP voting behind James Harden. Harden collected 86 of the 101 first-place votes.

Now that he’s in the more difficult Western Conference with what is a generally uninspiring Lakers roster, James should receive serious MVP consideration once again if he can help guide Los Angeles to a top-four finish.
