Who Won the NBA Most Valuable Player Award?

NBA MVP

The National Basketball Association (NBA) awards its MVP award at the end of every season. The winner receives the Maurice Podoloff Trophy, named for the first president of the NBA.

The NBA MVP award was first presented in the 1955-56 season to Bob Pettit of the St Louis Hawks.

Initially the award was voted on by the players. However, since the 1980–81 season, the award is decided by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has won the award six times.
