Kobe Bryant robbed Shaq of his 4th MVP in 2004.

By not playing well or not passing?

I think Shaq would have had to score 50 ppg for the Lakers to win that series.

Dennis Johnson stole it from Gus Williams in 78 by putting up a horrific game 7, and then undeservingly won it over Gus in 79 because the media felt good that DJ redeemed himself.

DJ was much better all around than Williams.

Kobe stans are fuming right now. But keep in mind that these are simply facts. Kobe has shot-jacked his way to completely awful Finals performances pretty much every time save for 1 or 2 Finals.

In 2010 it was very arguable if Kobe was the Finals MVP. 40 FG% Finals MVP with a 6/24 Game 7? That is incredibly weak. Compare it to Finals MVPs like LeBron 2013 who finishes a team off with a monstrous 37/12/4 and the clutch game-sealing jump shot in Game 7. Very weak.

The same Lebron who had a game where he took 21 shots for 15 points iin that finals?

How many times did Pau drop 30+ in the finals like wade? How many times did the Lakers have a player other than Kobe go for 30+ and another go for 20 in the same finals game?

Yeah, let's see... what are people really going to remember, some 15-point game in a meaningless Game 3 or the 16-point 4th quarter sparking one of the all-time great 4th quarter comebacks in Game 6 and dubbed "The Headband Game" or the beastly 37/12/4 on 12/23 shooting and a Finals-clinching jumper with 26 seconds left in the deciding Game 7 to win Finals MVP?

Kobe stans always gotta reach like crazy on these comparisons. Meanwhile, what Kobe is remembered for in the 2010 Finals is his 6/24 performance in Game 7. People are always going to remember the Lakers winning IN SPITE OF Kobe's shooting woes.

It should be Manu kept Duncan from getting another Finals MVP in '13 by turning over the ball so much.
