Best MVP Seasons in NBA history

Despite averaging a triple double his first 5 years, Oscar Robertson only won the MVP award once, which could probably be explained by being up against people like Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain, which in turn makes that one MVP award a lot more meaningful.

In his 1963-64 season with the Cincinnati Royals, he averaged 31.4 PPG, 11.0 APG and 9.9 RPG – earning his team a 55-25 record and the second seed in the East. Stars of the 1960s like Wilt, Bill Russell and Big O were able to put up such huge numbers because of the much higher shot frequency at the time.
