    Wes Unseld led the Bullets to the best record in the league (57 wins to 55 for the Big 3 Lakers.) West only played 61 games compared to Wes 82. Bullets were dead last in the West the previous season.

    That was also Bullets first winning season in their entire existence.

    Also, interesting note. Wes was not voted an All-Star the next season even tho the still won 50 games and his numbers were slightly better than his MVP season.
    Couldn't you only win MVP one time back then? Wes wouldn't have won it otherwise.

    MVP and Dpoy are nothing to be proud off.

    It’s subjective media driven BS.

    A big who cares.

    Unless you are apart of the millennial generation trophy culture no one gives a shit about these awards.

    People have cared about winning mvps of various kinds since sports began. Bill Russell was salty 50 years later he didn’t win the northern California college player of the year in like 1954. There’s nothing mentally weak about wanting recognition for your greatness.

    DPOY - LeBron over Marc Gasol in 2013

    If I was having to re work historical MVPs, and DPOYs to those who never got one

    1994 DPOY - Pippen
    2003 MVP - T-Mac
    2008 MVP - CP3
    2009 MVP - D-Wade
    2013 DPOY - LeBron

    Are the only ones that spring to mind.

    Kobe was unlucky in that he peaked in years (2006 and 2007) when his supporting casts were garbage. He probably doesn't average far above 30 ppg on a contender but his efficiency and creation would be much higher.

    To answer OP, I'd give the MVP to West over Unseld in 1969 and DPOY to Duncan over Camby in 2007.
