3 of the 7 seasons with greater than 500 MP and over .29 WS/48 resulted in no title:
1) 1964 - Wilt drags a terrible San Fran team to the finals, loses in 5 to the Celtics despite a playoff average of 35 points and 25 rebounds a game.
2) 1974 -- Kareem loses in 7 in the Finals to the Celtics despite a playoff average of 32 points and 16 rebounds a game.
3) 2009 -- LeBron, playing at a ridiculous level, puts up .399 WS/48 and yet his team cannot even reach the Finals, losing to Orlando despite LeBron's overall stats of 35 points and 9 rebounds a game.
of the 4 winners (Jordan twice, Connie Hawkins and Dr. J)
-- Jordan's 1991 season (at age 27) is the modern day gold standard at 31 points and 6 rebounds a game while going WS/48 of .333
-- Dr. J's 34 points and 12 rebounds a game in the ABA's 1976 season demonstrate why he was such a God.
-- Connie Hawkins at 30 points and 12 rebounds a game led the Pittsburgh Pipers to the 1968 ABA title.
-- Jordan AGAIN in 1996 put up 31-5 and over .300 WS/48. Jordan easily serves as the oldest guy on the list as we have
Hawkins and Dr. J 25
Wilt and Michael 1991 at age 27
