It didn't even exist until 1969, had it Bill Russell would have more than anyone.
Kareem was flat out robbed of the 1980 FMVP in favor of a popular, charismatic teammate and we are to act as if the award is legit? Paul Pierce, Tony Parker, Cedric Maxell, Joe Dumars, and Chauncey Billups all have FMVP's. And as I said, even John freaking Starks came within one shot of winning a FMVP.
