The only 2x instances of this I can think of came in recent years:

Pau Gasol stole Kobe's 2008 Fmvp by not showing up
LeBron James stole Wade's 2011 Fmvp by not showing up

Broke the NBA Finals record for threes made(at the time) with 22 while averaging 20.3/5.0/2.5 on 50/52/87 percentages.

Averaged more boards, more steals, more blocks, less turnovers than Pierce, and did a great job defending Bryant even though he wasn't the only one tasked with it, he was the most effective IMO. He even held Bryant scoreless for the entire first half of Game 4.



Your not the only one...in fact back when everything was going on I dont really remember k.g being mentioned as a finals mvp candidate as much as allen or pierce...it seemed as it was between those two pretty much all the way

Kobe from Gasol twice (09, 10). Pierce from KG in 08. Also Parker from Duncan in 07.

Gasol performed better in 2008 than Kobe did in 08 and Gasol was going up against near prime KG. Gasol also performed better in 09, 10 finals than Kobe as well.

It's becoming hard to believe that you even follow the NBA.

Really? Look when you registered here.

Pau Gasol was on a milk carton in the 2008 Finals. Part of the reason Kobe struggled so much that series, besides flaws in his approach.

Watching LeBron in the 2011 Finals, particularly in 4th quarters was like trying to play "Where's Waldo?"

Honestly, we know you don't know what you're talking about here.

Shawn Kemp's 1996 NBA Finals averages vs Rodman:

23.3 points on 55% shooting from the field, 10.0 rebounds and 2 blocks.


Dennis was very good, but don't get it twisted--MJ earned that MVP, as he did his 5 other Finals MVPs.

How does one go about stealing an award like that? It's not like he voted for himself. He had no control over the vote other than to play
