Let me tell you why he's always been OKC's MVP:
Because of his joy on the court
Because of his easy leadership of his team, leading them all the be appreciative of the gifts they've been given.
Because of his humble heart and resilient spirit.
Because he loves his momma.
And because he's not afraid to speak of his faith and humble beginnings.
Because he inspires everyone around him to be a better person.
As for the toppling MVP votes cast in his favor - they just cemented what we already knew.
