Michael Jordan
Hakeem Olajuwon
Shaquille O'Neal
Kobe Bryant

Of all of them Jordan is the only one to have won back-to-back regular season MVPs as well.

edit: the finals MVP came about in 1969 so its about the last 40 years. My bad.

No one else really has had back to back title reigns that much.

But cool for each 4 players.

Hakeem was the man. Sure miss watching the dream do the things he did on the floor and in the paint. Makes you appreciate what type of players we had 15+ years ago. Now players are just handed fame and fortune and everything that go's with it...I thank you all....sorry lost it for a second. Ya look at the players on the floor today and there are only a handful that could play the type of game in the NBA back then. They sure would know what a real foul was insted of all this lean/fall into the player to draw a foul. Nice players on that list. Not a big fan of Shaq. Never have been

Finals MVP was created and first awarded during the 1969 playoffs. So technically only four players have won it back-to-back in the past 41 years.

It's a great accomplishment.

True. The only back-to-back champions in NBA history (post 1969) whos MVP from the first championship didn't win it the following year are the 1987/1988 Lakers (Magic/Worthy) and the 1989/1990 Pistons (Dumars/Thomas).

Every other repeat champion since 1969 had the same finals MVP for both, or all three championships in a row. (Jordan, Dream, Shaq, Bryant).

Stop Hating. The award is named after Bill Russell, who would have had 8 Finals MVP in a row in the award was already invented. The award has been around since 1969, not for 60 years smartass.

That's impressive, and no doubt that Shaq, Kobe, Hakeem, and MJ are top 10 players of all time.

Bitter?

Check this out:

When somebody loves you
It's no good unless he loves you all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you all the way

Taller than the tallest tree is
That's how it's got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue sea is
That's how deep it goes if it's real

When somebody needs you
It's no good unless he needs you all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all those in between years, come what may

Who knows where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say, but if you let me love you
It's for sure I'm gonna love you all the way

Taller than the tallest tree is

And for all those in between years, come what may

Who knows where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say but if you let me love you
It's for sure I'm gonna love you all the way
All the way, I'm gonna love you all the way
