The reports were true: Kevin Durant won the 2014 MVP award, the first of his career. Durantula/Slim Reaper/The Servant pulled in 119 out of a possible 125 first place votes. LeBron “Usually This Award Is Mine” James got six first place votes and a vast majority of the second place votes. Blake Griffin did get one second place vote via Chris Sheridan– that’s called “trying to get attention,” so we’ll ignore it.

You can see how everyone voted on NBA.com, but here’s the final point breakdown:

1. Kevin Durant — 1232 (119 1st place)
2. LeBron James — 891 (6 1st place)
3. Blake Griffin — 434
4. Joakim Noah — 322
5. James Harden — 85
6. Stephen Curry — 66
7. Chris Paul — 45
8. Al Jefferson — 34
9. Paul George — 33
10. LaMarcus Aldridge — 26
11. Kevin Love — 25
12. Tim Duncan — 21
13. Tony Parker — 21
14. Dirk Nowitzki — 7
15. Carmelo Anthony — 4
16. Goran Dragic — 3
17. Mike Conley — 1

No surprise in the top four. It’s a little shocking that James “No Defense” Harden finished above guys like Curry and even Al Jefferson, whose teams would be lost without them. Melo probably should have gotten more than four points, considering he was probably worth about 30 of the Knicks’ 37 wins. I love that Mike Conley got one fifth-place vote. Cute.

Of course, you know Durant couldn’t care less about an MVP award if his team gets ousted in the first second round. So, still work to do.
