Who cares? He should have won.

Iggy winning was a joke.

Curry got penalized for not putting up massive numbers....but he was getting constantly doubled and trapped....which is why Iggy was able to put up good numbers.

It's dumb. The Warriors offense doesn't go anywhere without Curry, especially with how Klay played.

Curry was the FMVP.

But Iggy was close. He shat on Bran.

No it wasn't. FMVP is the most consistent and impactful player, not the best player on the team.

When Currys shot wasn't falling he was basically invisible. Although Iggy didn't have as many points he was still consistent and had his defense. If an average defender of Currys level guards Bron he averages a 40 point triple double and the Cavs win.

Dellavedova went off on him for goodness sake.

This.


The obsession with comparing stars by their accolades leads to a lot of undeserved accolades, just bc people feel theyll be wasted if given to a player with no historical significance. This is why Kobe was gifted FMVP, All-Defense, and even his one MVP. Hes supposed to be "the Jordan comparison" so the media just auto gives him the same awards Jordan got. Similarly in football, they basically just auto-give Superbowl MVP to the quarterback unless hes downright terrible, just bc the media is dumb, lazy, and idealizes quarterback as some position of heightened glory.

If youre gonna have a FMVP (and I dont even think they should, its a dumb award), then give it to the guy who had the best series. Not the guy whose reputation will benefit most from adding a particular award to his trophy case. I'm glad they didnt do that this time.

I was with you until you mentioned Kobe. Come on man even as a Bron stan you know Kobe's 2 FMVPs are deserved.

Besides Lebron will most likely pass him career wise undoubtedly next year, don't be so insecure bud.

Did you even watch the finals? Curry was not the most impactful at all. FMVP is for Finals. Not regular season.

The Cavs were doubling Curry 35 ft from the basket. They did so by LEAVING Iggy all alone. When you are the weak link the opposition pulls defenders from you CANNOT be the MVP.

Curry avg 26ppg on .585 TS% and the entire offense benefitted from his range as they essentially played 4 on 3. His inertia alone was far more valuable than any of Iggy's offensive contributions. But I guess Iggy did hold LeBron to 36/13/9 so... thats something.

This..

What EXACTLY did Iggy win the Finals MVP for?

Holding Lebron to 40% shooting?.... Bullshit... Lebron shot the same against the Bulls and Hawks, and he shot 41.7% the entire playoffs.

So what EXACTLY did Iggy win the FMVP for?... I know... The media is dumb as **** about basketball and they thought Iggy WAS having an impact on Lebron's FG%.... They didn't realize that the reason Lebron shot poorly the entire playoffs is because he's bad at the additional midrange and 1-on-1 required of high volume shooting - he's simply not capable of good efficiency at high shot volume..

27 shot attempts per game (Lebron's average in 2015 Playoffs) cannot be achieved on all 3-and-D - good midrange and 1-on-1 efficiency is needed to shoot well at this volume.. Accordingly, Lebron's career 36% midrange efficiency and poor 1-on-1 efficiency precludes him from ever shooting well at very high volumes - this is a statistical fact..

But again, the media is dumb as **** about basketball, so they didn't realize this, and thought it was all Iggy - it's nauseating how dumb the media is about basketball.. Curry's a good dude, so i'm sure he took it in stride, but it had to hurt a LITTLE bit... Curry did throw shots at Lebron in the media by referencing stats that don't mean anything.

TS is dumb, Curry shot 44% for the series, and for a guy that is completely dependent on his efficiency that's nothing special.

They doubled Curry because he's their best player, ball handler and playmaker which all makes since. But there were plenty of stretches where he got played straight up and Delly owned him. He completely disappeared in a couple games where his shot wasn't falling, both offensively and defensively. Golden States offense is so team oriented that they were able to move the ball and score without Curry being the main ball handler all the time.

And again, never said Iggy stopped Lebron, he got shat on. But if a defender or Currys level guarded Lebron he would have had the GOAT finals and led the Cavs to the win.

Iggys D>Currys O.

Those two games where he got his shit pushed in was the reason why he didn't win finals mvp. Those games are the reason why the cavs had a opportunity to win. Watch the games boys. No box score watching. It was like harden vs the Warriors.
