Ive seen some posts on past MVPs by seeding within their conference but was curious about MVP team record within the entire NBA. Heres the data. Year | Player | Record | Ranking :--:|:--:|:--:|:--: 2020 | Giannis Antetokounmpo | 56-17 | 1st 2019 | Giannis Antetokounmpo | 60-22 | 1st 2018 | James Harden | 65-17 | 1st 2017 | Russell Westbrook | 47-35 | 10th 2016 | Stephen Curry | 73-9 | 1st 2015 | Stephen Curry | 67-15 | 1st 2014 | Kevin Durant | 59-23 | 2nd 2013 | LeBron James | 66-16 | 1st 2012 | LeBron James | 46-19 | 4th 2011 | Derrick Rose | 62-20 | 1st 2010 | LeBron James | 61-21 | 1st 2009 | LeBron James| 66-16 | 1st 2008 | Kobe Bryant | 57-25 | 3rd 2007 | Dirk Nowitzki | 67-15 | 1st 2006 | Steve Nash | 54-28 | 4th 2005 | Steve Nash | 62-20 | 1st 2004 | Kevin Garnett | 58-24 | 2nd 2003 | Tim Duncan | 60-22 | T-1st 2002 | Tim Duncan | 58-24 | T-2nd 2001 | Allen Iverson | 56-26 | T-2nd 2000 | Shaquille ONeal | 67-15 | 1st 1999 | Karl Malone | 37-13 | T-1st 1998 | Michael Jordan | 62-20 | T-1st 1997 | Karl Malone | 64-18 | 2nd 1996 | Michael Jordan | 72-10 | 1st 1995 | David Robinson | 62-20 | 1st 1994 | Hakeem Olajuwon | 58-24 | 2nd 1993 | Charles Barkley | 62-20 | 1st 1992 | Michael Jordan | 67-15 | 1st 1991 | Michael Jordan | 61-21 | 2nd 1990 | Magic Johnson | 63-19 | 1st I stopped there but the 80s were a lot of bird and magic both on top teams trading MVPs so you can guess what the results would be. Anyways, do you think Embiid being on a "5th" overall team will hurt him in the MVP discussion? Or will seeding be the end-all-be-all of the winning team threshold?
