Wait ‘Til Next Year | Cleveland Cavaliers

Once LeBron James signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the off-season I think most of us, if not all, expected a trip to the NBA Finals. Even before they traded Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love.

And even when Kevin Love suffered a dislocated shoulder in the first round against the Boston Celtics and Kyrie Irving only looked as if he was maybe 60-percent of himself, most of us still expected the Cavaliers to represent the east in late June.

From an injury standpoint, luck was on Cleveland’s side during the regular season with the exception of Anderson Varejao who only played 26 games due to a torn Achilles. But that luck clearly ran out in the playoffs Continue reading

Current v Former | MVP’s Meeting In NBA Finals

Most Valuable Player can be interpreted a few ways. Some feel the MVP should be awarded to the league’s best player (LeBron James). Others feel it should be awarded to the best player on the best team for that season should they have a player of that caliber (Stephen Curry). And then others prefer to award it to the best player on a playoff team in which he had to carry the most due to certain circumstances (James Harden).

Regardless of your interpretation, the player that wins the award is usually one of the game’s best and that was the case this year with Stephen Curry. But what isn’t always the case is the league MVP reaching the NBA Finals, and what’s even more rare is them squaring off against a former MVP in the matchup.

This season we have both. So as a result, I’ve decided to go back the last quarter-century and see how many times we’ve had the pleasure of seeing an NBA Finals match where the current MVP met a former MVP.
