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

Kobe's in 2010 was terrible though.
Pierce deserved that MVP for what he did on both ends of the floor....

So is this supposed to be about "worst Finals MVP performance" or "worst player to win Finals MVP"? Because from some of the responses, it appears that some of the people replying don't know.

Let's change the topic to "which current superstar choked in the Finals the most often and lost?"

Has to be 2006 Dwayne Wade.




Refs were totally robbed of that MVP that Finals. Crawford, Javey, Bavetta were all more deserving.

IMO, a choke is losing when you should have won. Like, Durant didn't by any means choke last season. Harden certainly did. LeBron choked in 2011, but not in 2007. Kobe didn't choke in 2008. The Celtics were the better team. He did however choke/chuck in 2004. The Lakers really should have won that series.

They had no chance as soon as Malone went down.

Why?

Because he had better stats?

How about the 3 road games. Letting Big Baby dominate in game 4. Padding his stats in game 1 (with Kobe resting in the 4th), shooting below 47% in the last 5 games of the series. Shooting 6 for 16 in the game 7.

Gimme a break!

ABSOLUTELY NOT!

2008 LALs were PICKED as FAVORITES to win the series (HINT: Season MVP was playing for Lakers in his prime. LAL had seasoned veteran NBA Finals coach in Phil J vs Doc Rivers a rookie finalist)

2008 Lakers were PICKED to win it all in 6 games. BOS were only suppose to give them a tough fight.

Worst? I can't call an MVP winner worst.
But Parker's was the least impressive. Billups was average. Kobe deserve his. He was still the best player of that series. Gasol was very good but not as good. A lot of people here don't value leadership. Kobe was the leader.
