Andre Iguodala won NBA Finals MVP with seven votes to LeBron James’ four. Here’s a breakdown of how everyone voted:

Andre Iguodala:

  • Sam Amick, USA Today
  • Ken Berger of
  • Hubie Brown, ESPN Radio
  • Jason Lloyd, Akron Beacon Journal
  • Rusty Simmons, San Francisco Chronicle
  • Marc Spears, Yahoo Sports
  • Marc Stein, ESPN

LeBron James:

  • Steve Aschburner,
  • Howard Beck, Bleacher Report
  • Zach Lowe, Grantland
  • Jeff Van Gundy, ABC

I would have voted for LeBron, but I’m not surprised a Warrior won the award. Plenty of voters just don’t like the idea of rewarding someone on the losing team.

Still, I thought LeBron would have a chance because Golden State would split votes. More than anything, I’m shocked Stephen Curry didn’t get a single vote.
