Having been awarded his fourth MVP trophy in the last five years, LeBron James joins an exclusive club made up of Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell as the only players to have won the award at least four times. James' accomplishments during the past regular season were remarkable: leading his Miami Heat team to a league-best 66 - 16 record -- highlighted by a 27-game winning streak -- all while leading the league in Player Efficiency Rating for the sixth straight season. Efficiency has in fact become the hallmark of King James' game, one that's evolved dramatically since his first MVP for the 2008 - 2009 season. Relentlessly working on his post-up attack following the Heat's loss to the Mavs in the 2011 Finals has made Bron the single most versatile player in the NBA, and at 28, he's displayed smarts, drive and a fierce work ethic to go along with his innate talent. It's by now clear to everyone -- including his most begrudging detractors -- that James is a once-in-a-generation basketball great, one that's worthy of a career retrospective. His career highlights have been assembled by the NBA, starting with Draft Day and continuing to the awarding of MVP no. 4. Enjoy the video below.
