Because everybody knows he is the MVP. It doesn't need to be said. Everybody knows the deal.

Other teams who feel the need to scream MVP for their player are just pretending.

Cavs crowd is more passionate. Miami is full of uninspired fans (the ones who got the dough to buy the tickets).

A lot of spin in here

I guess the real answer is: No need to ask the obvious.

It's more fun to cheer MVP for someone who was close to it but just missed out...at that point it's like you are making a statement. Cheering for the real MVP would be kinda boring.

I'm sure Lebron got more intense MVP chants right after Derrick Rose won it than at any point in his career.

First of all, Miami fans are not the most passionate.

But he does get a lot of MVPchants regardless. Its not like Kobe who gets chants at the line after a simple loose ball foul, but close.

I always felt they only did it when he did something amazing or something special. and i always felt like they wouldnt do it out of respect for Wade. they can be conflicted at times.

Heat fans are spoiled. They really can't appreciate the greatness of LeBron like say Cleveland did back when he was there. Wish this wasn't the case but it is what it is. I guess maybe it's because they don't want to alienate D-Whistle..

Nobody in Miami really thinks Lebron deserves it?

I doubt it, basically everyone in the country thinks he deserves it except the one media member who voted for Carmelo.

because the refs don't go up and shoot free throws. there's no chance to chant mvp for them.
