Default Re: Why didn't Bill Russell win the 1964 MVP?

I can't open that link that was referenced above from where I am, but from what I've read I definitely believe that it was a combination of Oscar having his best season in terms of stats AND wins as well as the backlash from Russell's social/ racial commentary. ThaRegul8r did a post on another forum some time ago listing several sources with people speaking of the negative effects of Russell's comments on his MVP chances that season.
