For the second time this year Lebron James beat out Dwayne Wade for NBA's Best. Dwayne Wade was nominated for 2009 Best NBA player along with Cleveland's Lebron James, Orlando's Dwight Howard and Los Angeles's Kobe Bryant.
It was tough considering that all four players made a good case throughout the season. James was named regular season MVP, Dwight Howard was named Defensive Player of the Year, Dwayne Wade was the NBA's scoring champion and Kobe Bryant was the Finals MVP, but Lebron James was able to run away with it.
This was the second time that Wade was nominated for an ESPY. The first time was in 2006 when he won the NBA's best player award after leading the Miami Heat to an NBA Championship.
