View Full Version : Does Dirk Deserve Finals MVP If Dallas Loses?

It seems to me that Dirk has been clutch most the series, hitting big shots, not giving up, rebounding well, passing well, and taking a lot on his shoulders. If the stars continue to play the way they have, I think that regardless of who win the finals, Dirk is deserving of the MVP. It has happened before, and if there was an occasion for it to happen again, I'd say it would be this season.

Thoughts?

no. Wade would get it before Nowitzki touches it.

Is this a joke? Wade has been better than him. Why would they give it to a losing player if he hasn't even been the best in the series. He's been great, but Zero% chance. Zero.

If Dallas wins the Finals he definately does deserve the Finals MVP. But Wade (going into Game 5) is averaging 30 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 1.5 blocks, and 2 steals per game. If Miami wins, that SCREAMS Finals MVP.

I think Wade has been far too good for Miami to say Dirk deserves it if Miami wins.

Aren't the middle 2 options on the poll essentially the same thing?

it happened in the NHL. All you Maple Leafs fans know Gigure. He won the Conn Smyth(NHL Playoff MVP) even though he was on the losing team

No, Wade by far. He has played even better than the 06 finals in my opinion

:speechless: ...did you watch 06 finals?

but as far as actual topic. You would have to waaaaaaayyyyyyy outplay anyone on the winning team. Wade actually looks better than Dirk in the box score (although anyone actually watching the games would know who is playing the best). Anyway, Dirk isnt outplaying Wade nearly enough to get the nod over him.

No, Wade gets it without question if Miami wins.

It's happened a few times in the NHL, but nowadays I can't see it happening at all. Giguere in '03 was a major exception, and as amazing as Dirk has been, it's not on Giguere's level. That's arguably the greatest playoff performance by a player in any sport. Plus, the Conn Smythe is for the playoff MVP, whereas I believe the NBA just awards it to the MVP of the final series.
