Today’s Topic: Three-time MVPs
On May 29, 1987, the Boston Celtics’ Larry Bird won his third straight NBA Most Valuable Player award. He became just the third player to ever accomplish this feat, joining legends Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain.
To honor Bird’s incredible run, this Throwback Thursday we look back at the nine players who have won three or more MVP awards.
