Encyclopedia > National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player Award

The National Basketball Association (NBA) Most Valuable Player (MVP) is an annual award given since the 1955–56 NBA season. The winner receives the Maurice Podoloff Trophy, which is named in honor of the first commissioner of the NBA who served from 1946 until his retirement in 1963. MVP voting takes place immediately following the regular season. Until the 1979–80 NBA season, the MVP was originally selected by a vote of NBA players. However, since the 1980–81 NBA season, the award is decided by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada. Voting is done by 125 members of the media; three from each of the 30 NBA cities and the rest a mix of national writers and broadcasters. Since the 1982–83 season, every player who has won the award has played for a team with at least 50 regular-season wins (except for Karl Malone in the lockout-shortened 1998–99 season, in which the regular season was only 50 games long).[1] NBA redirects here. ...
