LeBron James, the two-time defending NBA Most Valuable Player, told ESPN's Brian Windhorst on Saturday that he doesn't expect to win the award for a third time in 2011.

"When we decided to come together our Most Valuable Player chances kind of went out the window," James said, explaining that he also doesn't think Dwyane Wade will win MVP.

"I think they classify it as an individual award," James said. "They look at it like the less help you have, the more numbers you have then the better chance for you to win that award."

Wade is averaging 24.5 points per game, the fifth most in the NBA while James is in sixth with 24.5.

The Heat superstar went on to say that he doesn't know how to "classify the MVP thing."
