Tallest: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 7′2″ (1970-71, 1971-72, 1973-74, 1975-76, 1976-77, 1979-80)

Fourteen of the 53 MVPs (26.4 percent) have been 7′0″ or taller.

Shortest: Allen Iverson, 6′0″ (2000-01)

Only three players shorter than 6′4″ have won the MVP award: Allen Iverson, Bob Cousy, and Steve Nash (who won two MVP awards).

Median Height: 6′9″

Heaviest: Shaquille O’Neal, 300 lbs. (1999-00)

They might want to recalibrate the scale they used to weigh Shaq.

Lightest: Allen Iverson, 165 lbs. (2000-01)

Forty-four of the 53 MVPs (83 percent) have weighed 200 pounds or more.

Median Weight: 215 lbs.

Most Points: Michael Jordan, 2868 (1987-88)

Jordan’s point total in 1987-88 ranks sixth all time. Oddly enough, Wilt Chamberlain has four of the top five single season point totals, but won his four MVP awards in other seasons.

Fewest Points: Bill Walton, 1097 (1977-78)

Bill Russell has 5 of the 10 lowest point totals for an MVP.

Most Rebounds: Wilt Chamberlain, 1957 (1966-67)

Chamberlain grabs the top four spots here.

Fewest Rebounds: Steve Nash, 249 (2004-05)

In what shouldn’t be a surprise, the four shortest MVPs have the four lowest rebound totals.

Most Assists: Magic Johnson, 988 (1988-89)

Magic has the three highest assist totals for an MVP…

Fewest Assists: Moses Malone, 101 (1982-83)

…while Moses has the three lowest.

Best Team Winning Percentage: Michael Jordan, .878 (1995-96 Chicago Bulls)

The Bulls went 72-10 in 1995-96, the best record in NBA history.

Worst Team Winning Percentage: Bob Pettit, .458 (1955-56 St. Louis Hawks)

The Hawks made the playoffs that season, losing to the Fort Wayne Pistons in the Western Division Finals.
