Robinson, David San Antonio Spurs/Most Valuable Players, NBA Season 1994-95.
The award is given each year after the season to the player who is judged to be the best in the league at his position. Voters may choose one player from each team, or they may use their discretion if there are two or more candidates from the same team. The MVP Award is given by the National Basketball Association (NBA). It was created in 1956 when the league introduced its All-Star Game feature. The winner of the award is announced at the end of the season during the playoffs (if any).
A player must be nominated by a member club in order to be considered for the honor. No player can receive votes himself. If a player is not chosen as a starter, then no vote is taken for the Most Valuable Player Award.
The winner is usually recognized for the entire season, but if he has poor showings in some games or seasons, they can still have a good campaign by finishing above some lesser players on the same team. This has happened many times before where a player has won the award despite having less than ideal statistics throughout the whole season.

His father, James Jordan, was an average player who worked as a shoe salesman to help support his family. His mother, Ruth "Sue" Bailey Jordan, was a high school track star who went on to play college basketball.
Michael's childhood ambition was to become a doctor, but he also loved playing basketball and wanted to be like Larry Bird when he grew up. In 1986, when Michael was just 18 years old, he joined the Chicago Bulls as a rookie free agent. He immediately made an impact by scoring 24 points in his debut game against the New York Knicks. Over the next eight seasons, he helped the Bulls win six Eastern Conference titles and reach the NBA Finals four times.
During his career, Michael Jordan became one of the most popular and successful athletes in American sports history. He was named to the NBA All-Star Game seven times and won the Slam Dunk Contest three times.

Malone and James both played for Utah. James is also expected to be named to this year's All-NBA team.
A six-year veteran out of Cleveland State, James signed a four-year, $88 million contract extension with Miami last month.

This was the 54th North American National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game, which took place during the 2004–05 NBA season. The East beat the West 125-115 for the second time in six years, with Allen Iverson of the Philadelphia 76ers voted Most Valuable Player.
Iverson had another spectacular season, leading the Sixers to their first playoff appearance since 2001 and finishing as one of the top scorers in the league. He also won his third MVP award by a wide margin over Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.
Iverson made history in other ways too, such as becoming the first player in NBA history to have three consecutive seasons with at least 30 points per game. He also set the record for most consecutive games with a triple-double, doing so from December 23, 2003 to January 26, 2005. During that period, Iverson averaged 10.7 rebounds and 11.0 assists while shooting.543 from the field and.813 from downtown.
Before the start of the season, many expected Iverson to leave Philadelphia in search of a new team after the Sixers declined their $47 million option on April 1. Instead, Iverson signed a contract extension with Philadelphia worth up to $94 million over four years.
