Default #1 options who had a dominant playoff run en route to a championship?

Let's assemble a list, post said player along with his playoff stats in his team's championship run. Player has to have been indisputably the best player on his team.

e.g.

1993-1994
Hakeem Olajuwon: 29/11/4 2 steals, 4 blocks 52% fg (23 games)

2005-2006
Dwade: 28/6/6 2 steals, 1 block 50% fg (23 games)

what? seriously? did he average this throughout the whole run or just in the finals?

thats very good indeed. its sad that many laker fans didnt appreciate and recognize what pau has given to the lakers franchise. i mean he is no kobe, but he was very very very important for that 2peat. as he was gone, no reaction at all in lakerland, just whining about his "choke" in the last season. but imo that was connected to the fact, that the franchise cared shit for pau and wanted to trade him

This is where ATG great list should start, winning a ring while dominating individually should hold much more weight than any other SINGULAR accomplishment because it is BY FAR the hardest thing to do and it's not subject to whims of politics and groupthink like MVP's, DPOY, 1st team selections

It's just strange to me in what little regards thi accomplishment is held, regular season MVP's and records are seemingly held in higher esteem.

This is THE most exclusive club for a player, would anybody argue against that?

It starts there THEN you pare down with things like NBA team selections, MVP's giving more luster.

Except it wasn't.

Playoffs: 11.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 19.6 pts per game for the 2010 playoffs.

Finals: 18.6pts, 11.6 rbs and 3.7 assists

http://www.basketball-reference.com/blog/?p=6608

I wouldn't recommend you to listen to that idiot...

EDIT: Fixed an error there. Put the 2011 stats by mistake.

Kobe did for the 2009 playoffs:

7.3 rebounds (that's insane seeing as he's a guard and plays mainly from the backcourt), 6.1 assists and 29.4 points for the 2001 season

5.3 rebounds, 5.5 assists 30.2 points per game for the 2009 season.

6.0 rebounds , 5.5 assists and 29.2 points for the 2010 season.
