Traded MVP’s Win Titles

Posted by r1zzo23 on August 3, 2007

I found this stat on CelticsBlog.com which was found somewhere else.

Seven of the 11 former MVPs when switching away from the team they won the MVP award with go on to win the NBA championship. Those mvp’s are:

  1. Bob McAdoo
  2. Kareem Abdul Jabbar
  3. Wilt Chamberlain
  4. Oscar Robertson
  5. Moses Malone
  6. Shaquille O’Neal
  7. Bill Walton

The other four MVPs that didn’t win titles after being traded were Cowens, Olajuwon, Iverson and Barkley. Cowen and Olajuwon maybe shouldn’t even be on the list because Cowens effectively retired and Hakeem was much past his prime.

Does this mean Kevin Garnett is destined to bring title #17 to Boston in his tenure? Only time will tell

New Blog!

Posted by r1zzo23 on August 3, 2007

I am starting up a new blog that I will update regularly (hopefully) that will be a much more broad than this blog. It is called “The Sports Lounge” and will be about baseball, basketball and football throughout the country in both the professional and college ranks. It is in it’s infancy stages now, but within the next week I hope to have it running at full speed especially with the Donaghy, Vick and Bonds’ controversies swirling as well as preseason football starting this weekend. So be sure to be on the lookout for this new blog and don’t be afraid to debate what I think on any of these topics.
