Just two NBA Finals MVPs who are eligible for the Basketball Hall of Fame haven’t been selected for induction:
- Cedric Maxwell (1981 Celtics)
- Chauncey Billups (2004 Pistons)
Maxwell, on the other hand, wasn’t on that level. He never even made an All-Star team. He was just a good player who had an excellent six games against the Rockets in the 1981 NBA Finals.
Really, it’s a neat distinction to be the lone NBA Finals MVP who was never a star. Maxwell can cherish that.
And this watch, which he reveals in this entertaining video.
