17. Blake Griffin – 2014
If your team loses, then you’re not going to win the MVP award. We’re sorry but life in the NBA isn’t fair. If it was, then Griffin definitely would have got it in 2014 when he put on the show of his life in front of the world. Instead, it was Kyrie Irving who could the prize.
But Griffin was magnificent in defeat. He scored 38 points, shooting an amazing 19-for-23 from the field. The East won 163-155, but Griffin definitely deserves credit for putting on the pressure. It’s performances like that that make the All-Star game exciting.
