The Bernucca List – Edition 43

No, I didn’t answer my own question.

What fun would there be in that? That would be like throwing a surprise party for yourself.

The previous edition of The Bernucca List was correctly answered by a reader named Chris, who offered, “NBA players who have been named MVP without winning a championship.”

Among the five, Karl Malone had two cracks at a title, Charles Barkley and Allen Iverson each had one, and Steve Nash and Derrick Rose have yet to play in the NBA Finals. And it doesn’t look like either one will get there this season, either.

So congrats to Chris, who joins this season’s leaderboard. Readers Brian C. and Brian Rivel are on top with three wins apiece.

This week’s list is perhaps our longest ever and is after the jump.

    This is tough. I’m not sure if this is in-depth enough to be the correct answer. But I think what all these guys have in common are that they are all black coaches who have been fired during the season.

    I’d say NBA players turned coaches who won at least a ring. But there should be Larry Bird in the list, and Mike Brown shouldn’t. I’m at loss.
