The first year the Finals MVP was given out, it was awarded to Jerry West, who was actually on the losing team. Since then however, nobody on the losing team has ever been voted to the finals MVP. So my question is this: Would you vote for a guy on the losing team if his performance was head-and-shoulders above anybody else on the floor?

No. It's a BS award that guys like Tony Parker steal so it should at least make sense.

I don't believe so. If you lose you should not get MVP.

If the Lakers didn't have Shaq they wouldn't have even been in the finals!

If he is the underdog and takes a team that has not a good chance to win with amazing numbers then yes.

If he gets like 40 PPG and 20 RPG and makes it a close series, I don't mind.

the award is just for the finals.

He can't win it just for getting there.

Because Tim Duncan was infinitely more important to them getting to the Finals and winning the championship. I don't like that a 4-5 game stretch wins you an award and that great performances in the 3 rounds leading up to the finals are ignored.

If the winning team is somewhat "underwhelming" and the other star on the losing team goes totally ape-**** then yes.

Yeah but his performance would have to be significantly better then anyone on the opposing team and it would have to be obvious that his team lost because of the failures of his supporting cast or coach and not because he did something wrong.

If he played good enough his team should have won.
