Default NBA MVP's who didn't reach the finals.

The last twenty or so years, who are the players that won the award, but never reached the finals that year or ever?

I can only think of KG and Steve Nash (TWICE HAHAHA). I think Duncan won one of his in a year he failed to reach the finals, I could be wrong, but it doesn't count cause he's played in and won finals.

Am I missing anyone else?

David Robinson.

(Didn't see the "or ever" caveat, but still this should count, as Nash is not yet four years removed from his MVP's as Robinson was by the time he reached the Finals).

What players led their team to the Finals... without another all-star on their team.. in the toughest conference... and hadn't won MVP?

Last player to not to win MVP and lead their team to Finals was Kidd. But he hadn't done it in a tough confrence...Saying "toughest" is very subjective, who was tougher in the 80s, the east (Celtics) or west (Lakers), you can't really say

I just mena the toughest conferenc ein the league at that time. I was specifically thinking of Kidd.. in the east you can cruise to the Final. Probably in the weak conferences of a lot of eras.

If Nash doesn't get at least to the finals, he will go down as one of the league's biggest chokers ever. AI got there with Eric Snow, Aaron McKie, and a still old Mutumbo and Nash can't there with his high powered team? KG is all but doomed to be labeled as choker and Nash looks like he will join him.
