Ethan Ennis' NBA Playoff Most Valuable Player Award

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Script error: No such module "Sidebar or footer".

Ethan Ennis' NBA Playoff Most Valuable Player Award is an annual National Basketball Association (NBA) award given by Ethan Ennis, since the 1947 BAA Playoff. The award is attributed to a single player in each NBA Postseason throughout the NBA's history. The award has only ever been given a player whose team has reached the NBA Finals, although that's not a written rule. Essentially every record for award is held by LeBron James: Wins (9), wins by a non-champion (5), only player to win the award in three decades (2000s, 10s, 20s), and is the only player to win the award for three teams (Cavaliers, Heat, Lakers). The other records are held by Bill Russell: Most consecutive wins (8), and most wins as a champion (8).
