it seems like the Captain is the only one to do so with 2 different teams (71 with the bucks and 80 with the lakers).


and oh hey, just wanted to confirm there are only 2 guys in nba history to win a title, finals mvp, league mvp, all-star game mvp, and a scoring title in the same season, rite?


MJ with the Bulls in 96 & 98

Shaq with the Lakers in 2000

Cool post, but ussualy when they give out MVP, they usually have an average team, so that makes them look good
