Default Max contract Finals MVP.....

Who are max contract players that have won the Finals MVP? We are talking about selfish money hungry players that took all the cap space and won Finals MVP still.

$30 million dollar club?

Shaq
Kobe
MJ

Anyone else?


EDIT: I believe Dirk was a big time salary player who won a Finals MVP too.

Kobe won FMVP before 30 million thus he doesnt qualify

He still was a max player and 28 is real close to 30, so he fits that criteria.

As far as Kobe goes, I think he won with $20 million plus. I believe max at the time.

I just think it's amazing for a player to win on a max contract.

1.) They max players. Already impressive.

2.) Winning while taking up most of their team's cap.

By your very low standards this is actually not that bad of a thread(emphasis on low).
I mean there's an agenda, but still you put thought into it.

Not that I think this absurd shit needs discussing....but in case anyone cares..

Guys like Shaq and KG predate the post 99 lockout rules due to being grandfathered in on contracts already signed. Which is why KG could have taken 33-35 million with raises to come in 2005. And why shaq signed for more than anyone else could all the time. But its hard to say it was their max. Shaq could potentially have made more than he did.

Also...this is a matter of contract relative to the cap.

The cap was once 3.6 million and Bird made 1.8. The modern equal of 29.5 million with our cap.

Moses made about half the cap too. A number of people did.

Magic had the modern equal of a 20 year 322 million dollar deal relative to the cap when it kicked in.

A lot of people have won while making roughly the most money they could.

Thank you.

Bird and Magic to the list.

It's significant because from a business standpoint, you can clearly see if one player has an impact (taking the entire team's cap) versus a team with a bunch of good players with equal salaries.
