The NBA Finals MVP Award has gone to a member of the losing team just once in league history (Jerry West – Lakers – 1969).
Lebron James deserved a spot in that exclusive club.
His stats are splashed all over the airwaves and there are already a ton of articles breaking down his otherworldly production in the series.
In honor of Lebron’s heroic effort as an outgunned, overworked underdog, I’m posting a series of pictures of other figures who had to carry the load in the face of overwhelming odds—with little-to-no help around them.
It’s a fitting tribute.
Raphael vs. The Foot Clan – (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – 1990)
In lieu of a single picture, I’m linking to the whole scene.
George Bailey – (It’s A Wonderful Life – 1946)
