Reporters laughed at LeBron's comment.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is considered an MVP candidate this season, and last week he said he would vote for himself for MVP.
On Wednesday, LeBron was asked again who he would choose for MVP, and he responded in jest by selecting one of his teammates: Kevin Love.
LeBron joked when asked when asked who was his MVP "Kevin Love" - entire group of reporters burst out laughing— Daryl Ruiter (@RuiterWrongFAN) April 15, 2015
Love is having his worst statistical season since 2009-10, so he probably won't be getting many more MVP votes, even as a joke.
Last month, Love said that he would back Russell Westbrook for NBA MVP if he had a vote.
This is kind of awkward.
Stop trying to find a way to FIT-OUT and just FIT-IN. Be apart of something special! Just my thoughts— LeBron James (@KingJames) February 8, 2015
