As near as I can tell from eye-balling/cross referencing a couple of websites, there has never been a situation where the team with the MVP on its roster did not make the playoffs.
the conn smythe trophy is given to the MVP of the playoffs. so, in order to win the conn smythe, a player has to be on a team that is in the playoffs.
of course, If the player that is chosen did not make the playoffs, he will win the MVP award.
In Regular Season he had 2 mvp"s. he had win 4 super bowls and he had been 3 times mvp in a super bowl
Kobe Bryant will be accepting his first MVP this 2008 season.
If you play on the same team as Michael Jordan in his prime, you won't be MVP. It's possible but the odds are definitely against John Paxon.
Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics was the Finals MVP. There's no such thing as "playoff MVP".
