Now that we’ve recently published a list of regular season NBA MVP’s, we thought we’d compile a list of every NBA Finals MVP in chronological order.  This list begins with Jerry West who took the award in 1969, first year it was awarded. This list ends with the most recent NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard who took the award home after his Raptors won the NBA Championship in 2019. We will update this list after the 2020 NBA season if and when that happens.
