LeBron James had yet another impressive season for the 46-20 Miami Heat.

Miami Heat small forward LeBron James was named the 2011-12 Most Valuable Player, according to a source close to James. It is LeBron’s third MVP award in the last four years.

LeBron finished the year with averages of 27.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.9 steals, 0.8 blocks, 53.1 FG%, 36.2 3P% and 77.1 FT%.

Delving further, LeBron posted career highs in true shooting percentage, rebounding percentage and his league leading 30.7 PER represents the third highest figure of his illustrious career, albeit one devoid of championship rings.

James’ Miami Heat will face the Indiana Pacers at the American Airlines Arena this Sunday (time unknown).
