    To those who are saying 鈥淲hy isn鈥檛 the East Trophy named after MJ or LeBron鈥 they won so many Eastern Conference Finals鈥︹ Larry Bird and Magic Johnson SAVED the NBA. In 1979, attendance was in the toilet, most franchises were on the verge of bankrupt, NBA playoff games were being tape delayed and shown later after reruns of Gunsmoke. If Bird and Magic didn鈥檛 have their rivalry, there wouldn鈥檛 have been a 1990s MJ Bulls run or a LeBron era.

      @MyMagicIsntGivingUp! Magic thought that commercial made them friends and thought they were cool. Larry wanted no part of that and snubbed him hard.

      He cared more about getting a dig in at Magic, than he did about the trophy being named after him. My favorite Bird story: Xavier McDaniels was injured on a Christmas day game, having to sit the game out. He was the primary defender on Bird. Larry walked by the bench before the game, seeing X still in street clothes. He said "since you're not playing, I got you a Christmas present." A few plays into the game, Larry puts up a 3, turning around while the shot was still in the air to tell X "Merry fucking Christmas" as the shot swished through.

    4 - Steph Curry and Tim Duncan
    2 - Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, Richard Hamilton, Shaquille O鈥橬eal, Jason Kidd
    1 - Khris Middleton, Anthony Davis, Chris Paul, Bam Adebayo, Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, Paul Pierce, Dwight Howard, Dwayne Wade, Allen Iverson, Kevin Garnett, Reggie Miller

    The Bill Russell Trophy should be renamed the Michael Jordan Trophy. Jordan won 6 Finals MVPs. Russell never did. He could have in 1969, but West had a better series even though Boston won that yr. Plus, Jordan never lost in the Finals. Russell did.
