The Most NBA MVP Award Winners of All Times is an article about NBA `s Most Valuable Player award. The National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player (MVP) is an annual award given since the 1955–56 NBA season to the best performing player of the season. Since the 1980–81 season, the award is decided by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada, each of whom casts a vote for first to fifth place selections. Each first-place vote is worth 10 points; each second-place vote is worth seven; each third-place vote is worth five, fourth-place is worth three and fifth-place is worth one. Before that the MVP was selected by a vote of NBA players. From 2010 one ballot was cast by fans through online voting. The player with most points wins the MVP award.
Born on April 16, 1947 in New York, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar started his pro career in 1969 as Center and won the NBA MVP award record six times.
