    Didn't Dennis Eckersley win one too at one point? I remember reading that that one was really bad.

    Dirk's win shares per 48 during his MVP year rank 16th for all NBA MVP seasons. Dave Cowens owns the record for fewest win shares per 48 for an NBA MVP.

    His 1 seed team lost an 8 seed, clearly not a great MVP. Duh doy.

    MVP awards are based on the regular season. What happens in the post season is irrelevant.

    Steve Nash. Product of the system and an absolutely horrific defender. Jason Kidd was far superior.

    Can we extend this to Coach of the Year? Because Jim Grobe won a national coach of the year award in college football.

    are you saying in general or the year they won? because Ryan Howard in 2006 might not have been the best player in the NL but he still had a great year.

    I know it's outside of the range, but Gibson in '88 was pretty awful.

    Seconded on Rose too. If you look at the past 30 years of the MVP in the NBA, Rose may be the only one who hasn't/won't make the HoF.

    Re-reading the title now I now I probably misinterpreted the question. I thought it to mean the least deserving MVP in a given year.

    Kirk Gibon's career fWAR - 35.9
    Ryan Howard's career fWAR - 19.4

    Pendleton is in between the two. Ken Caminiti was in the Gibson range, as well.

    Rose had that injury. I think he would have been pretty good. But that MVP is still trash.

    Dirk in 07 looks worse after he got booted but he had a great year
