What is an MVP share? Average voting finish?

Surprised how "bad" of a rebound number West has, but I guess his average only looks good because of era, so it makes sense in retrospect.

Not the average finish, but your total finishes combined

Award Share
The formula is (award points) / (maximum number of award points). For example, in the 2002-03 MVP voting Tim Duncan had 962 points out of a possible 1190. His MVP award share is 962 / 1190 = 0.81.

Oscar only played in 11 career Finals games, and 7 of them came in 1974, the last year of his career at 35 years old. His numbers were good in the '71 series win while he was still young.
