I’ve often heard it said that it’s a shame that Kobe’s only won one MVP award in his career, which is a head-scratcher first because Kobe’s won as many MVP awards as he’s deserved: one. Please inform me of all the missing seasons in which he was snubbed. [Note: I believe Kobe deserved to win in 2006, when he did not, rather than in 2008, which I viewed as more of a career achievement award.]
And second because it’s Shaq for whom a mere one MVP award is ludicrous. He’s the guy who was robbed of multiple MVP awards during his career. He won in 2000, and should have won in 2001, 2002 and 2005, in my opinion, but was taken for granted essentially because he was Goliath.
