(Video) Every NBA Finals MVP In League History

There aren't many players that can brag about winning an NBA Championship, let alone being Finals MVP, as that means that you didn't only outplay your rivals but that you also put your team on your back and led them to the ultimate glory.

Throughout the course of history, the Bill Russell Finals MVP award has been handed out 51 times. However, since its inception, it has only been given to 31 different players, with LeBron James and Michael Jordan as the only ones to win more than 3 of them (4 and 6, respectively).

But how would it look if we put together a clip featuring every single Finals MVP in the history of basketball? That'd definitely be a must-watch for hoops fans all over the world.
