KG deserved it, but they gave it to Pierce as a 'you stayed on this team forever' thing.

Kobe's in 2010 was terrible though.

Garnett deserved FMVP.

That's not to say his performance was worse than Parkers or Billups' but those were two great complete teams so you can understand their awards.

Kobe 2010 didn't deserve it. Gasol shoulda gotten it. Though, Gasol wasn't super amazing either so it wasn't too bad that he didn't get it.


Pierce 2008 didn't really deserve it either. Allen and KG played just as good, if not better.

In the two close wins of the series, Rodman averaged 11 offensive rebounds/game. He was setting records, and when MJ was shooting the team out of the game with bricks (rest of the team struggled shooting wise too though), it was Rodman getting all those rebounds to give Bulls the extra possessions. The Bulls as a team shot much lower than Sonics in that series...why do you think they still won? They got 34 more possessions from offensive rebounds (Rodman alone had 41!). MJ's scoring could have been replaced in that series, but Rodman's historic offensive rebounding? Not so much.

Rodman should have been the MVP of that Finals. The Bulls shot much worse from the field than the Sonics in the Finals but still won. How did that happen? Simple. The Bulls got more shot opportunities from offensive rebounds basically negating many of their misses. Rodman, by himself, secured and additional 41 possessions for the Bulls with his offensive rebounding including 2 games where he tied an NBA Finals record. That's like playing H-O-R-S-E and someone giving you multiple "do overs" after you've missed.

In the deciding Game 6 Jordan went 5-19 (26 FG%) while Rodman set a Finals record with 11 offensive rebounds. At the very least he was the MVP of the close out Game 6.

I agree Gasol had a case for Finals MVP in 2010, but Kobe's 29.5/8.0/5.4 average while shutting down Rondo is pretty damn impressive. People will always bring up 6/24 in Game 7 but nobody shot well in that tough defensive game.

I feel like they gave it to Pierce out of respect. Since he is the captain of the team and was in shitty Celtic teams.

False.

No one is winning a damn Finals MVP for rebounding alone.

Maybe if Rodman shut Kemp down, he'd have had a shot.

But Kemp put up 23.3 ppg on superb efficiency (55% FG and a TS% of 62.5) and 10.0 rpg.

I didn't realize that sagging 10 feet off of a guy is 'shutting them down'.
