The Lost Finals MVPs
From 1950 to 1968, the NBA did not hand out Finals MVP awards, so here I am to make my own judgments as to who should won year-by-year.
The big winners are Bill Russell (9 awards) and George Mikan (3 awards), who motherbleepin’ cleaned up.
Read and be happy or upset with my decision making process.
