A lot of those things you listed have almost zero effect on an MVP candidacy. You think voters are watching every game and seeing if and how he gets his FT's and knocking him for that? No, at the end of the season they see he averaged 28 PPG on whatever efficiency. He's been a true MVP caliber player the last two years, he's just had the misfortune of that coming at the same time as LeBron being at his peak.
