Default Re: What is the worst finals MVP performance in modern history?

How is Kobe's finals MVP any worse than Chauncey Billups

Kobe vs Gasol game by game stats in the finals.

Game 1
Kobe -30,7,6 10-22 FG 1 stl 1 blk
Gasol-23,14,3 8-14 FG 1 stl 1 blk

Game 2
Kobe-21,5,6 8-20 FG 4 stl 0 blk
Gasol-25,8,3 7-10 FG 1 stl 6 blk

Game 3
Kobe-29,7,4 10-29 FG 2 stl 3 blk
Gasol-13,10,4 5-11 FG 0 stl 2 blk

Game 4
Kobe -33,6,2 10-22 FG 2 stl 0 blk
Gasol-21,6,3 6-13 FG 0 stl 2 blk

Game 5
Kobe-38,5,4 13-27 FG 1 stl 1 blk
Gasol-12,12,0 5-12 FG 2 stl 0 blk

Game 6
Kobe -26,11,3 9-19 FG 4 stl 0 blk
Gasol-17,12,9 6-14 FG 1 stl 3 blk

Game 7
Kobe -23,15,2 6-24 FG 1 stl 0 blk
Gasol-19,18,4 6-16 FG 0 stl 2 blk

So I fail to see how Gasol deserved the MVP over Kobe considering Kobe was the more consistent player and better all around player. Not saying that Gasol didn't do his thing but if somehow Gasol was named the 2010 Finals MVP he'd be one of the weakest finals MVP performances so the haters logic doesn't even make sense
