The previous winner was Steph Curry, who won the title with the Golden State Warriors. The first NBA Finals MVP honors were awarded back in 1969, with Jerry West getting the accolades. Michael Jordan has six trophies, while LeBron James won four. 

The award is called the Bill Russell Award, in honor of an 11-time NBA champion, who was one of the greatest players in the history of the Boston Celtics and basketball in general.

The top of the list is reserved for the two-time NBA MVP, Nikola Jokic, who should have received this year’s honors for the best player in the league as well. So far, the Joker has averaged a triple-double in the playoffs, and it’s quite logical that the bookies believe in the Serb.

Jimmy Butler 4.5

Caleb Martin 26
Bam Adebayo28

Jimmy Butler averages 28.5 points per game in the playoffs, and his Heat is in the finals, making history as the first team to go through the play-in tournament and eventually win the conference. Jamal Murray averages 27.7 buckets for the Nuggets and is in the mix as well. Miami’s duo, Martin-Adebayo follows these guys, while Michael Porter Jr. sits at +8000 to win the trophy.
