Was Jordan's unanimous in the Bulls' 72-10 season?
Nah, but he was tied for the second-closest to a unanimous MVP with '04 KG and beyond only 2000 Shaq, iirc.

Yeah, I mean it's difficult to think of a reasonable argument for anyone over Lebron, but I doubt it'll be unanimous for several reasons.
One is that he's already been voted MVP 3 of the last 4 years and at least someone will be influenced by voter fatigue and likely vote for Durant. Then there's Melos scoring binge which is fresh in people's minds and might allow him to steal a vote or 2. And there also might be a few who will hold Lebron's supporting cast against him.
It might be one of the votes that ends up being among the closest to unanimous, but I'd be surprised because there have been seasons with less working against players for possible unanimous selections and they haven't gotten it. For example, I see less of a case for Iverson(who finished 7th overall in voting) getting a vote in 2000 over Shaq than Durant/Melo getting a vote over Lebron. Though neither have a case either.
