Can a player on the losing side win the Finals MVP?  My understanding is yes, they can.  Jerry West did it.  I can't see why Curry is so short in this market when LeBron should be a clear favourite.

That was 50 years ago, times change, they don't give awards to losers anymore

Possibly the winner isn't even quoted: Andre Iguodala has, so far, been the most influential Warriors player.

I am still convinced that if the Cavs lose the series, Lebron will win MVP of the Finals.

so all that is left for you to figure out now is what happens in case of a cavs win or a 3,5:3,5 tie

May be wrong but is even the mighty LeBron beginning to run out of puff? Warriors in six!

Warriors in 7

Iguodala probably blown his MVP chance with inability with free throws last night together with Curry's step-up in the fourth quarter.

LeBron was awesome again last night and SHOULD be given the MVP regardless...he is clearly the most valuable player but playing with journeymen and "not good enoughs".

Deffo GSW in six!

Agree, win or lose LeBron should be Finals MVP. Good call JJ.

Shaq had a pretty strong series as a loser in 2004 -v.similar series to this in that the Pistons decided shut the others (including Bryant) down and let Shaq work for his numbers ...Billups got the MVP.

James' numbers are better -if there's ever a year for it this is it. V.little competition on the other side... Delly has made Curry look like a mug numerous times with his staunch defense.

James is more likely to win it if he loses Game 6. It will be in Cleveland, and Americans are sentimental Wink

Curry has been clutch for the Warriors, especially in the 4th quarters of games but I think Iguodala will no doubt be the Warrior's player's player.
No one wants to see a player get the MVP on a losing team, including LeBron.  I think it's pretty undeniable though, over the course of 6 games he's been the best player.

Iggy shot 35% from the free-throw line and still got the finals mvp.  Shows you how big he was in this series.  Nice adjustment from Kerr.

Occasionally, just occasionally, you get it right!

maybe its time for an overhaul of the voting system? Just from experience but have watched : cricket, soccer and Aussie rules to see sports awards being awarded to losing teams. Maybe it should be a vote from the fans?

fans are idiots -you only need look at the all-star selections over the years. There was no right answer this year, but to give it to James would have been a slap in the face to the Champs.

Pretty much everything GSW do revolves around Curry and the hassle he received freed up the likes of Iggy.  Iguodala only slowed down LeBron, so really Curry should get MVP.

However, watching live, it was clear that Iggy did change the "feel" of games on more than one occasion...not sure Stephen Curry quite does this yet.
