LeBron James - Kawhi Leonard

  • Both LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard have won finals MVP for two different franchises, joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only players to have done so.
  • No one in NBA history has ever won the finals MVP for three or more different teams.
  • Sports bettors are taking action on both players’ performances in the playoffs, as well as both teams possibly winning the NBA Finals.

ORLANDO, Fla. – The battle of LA, which sees the LA Lakers and the LA Clippers going toe-to-toe to represent the West in the NBA Finals, has even more on the line than just bragging rights.

Lakers’ LeBron James and Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard are both in a position to make NBA history and become the first player to win a Finals MVP on three different teams.

Sportsbooks are already hosting lines for the play of LeBron and Kawhi.

Action is being taken on their potential points per game once the season resumes.

Prior to the season’s hiatus, James was averaging 25.7 points per game. The last time he was in the playoffs he put up 27.5 points per game.

Sports bettors at legal betting sites are split on how the 17-year vet will perform.

There are also betting lines for Kawhi Leonard’s potential play.

Leonard made history having the most 30-point playoff games since Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon.

Leonard was also averaging 26.9 points per game before the season suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

When Kawhi helped lead the 2019 Toronto Raptors to an NBA Championship and won Finals MVP, he joined LeBron James and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only three players to lead two different franchises to a title.

If either the Clippers or the Lakers take home the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, history could again be made as no one has ever hosted three NBA Finals MVP’s on three different teams.

Anyone betting on the NBA Finals could go home as historical winners if either LA team can win on the biggest stage.
