For the most part, there aren't a lot of dark horse winners of the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award. Over the last 10 years, three players have won the honor multiple times LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, and Kevin Durant. James and Leonard, however, are only two of three players to win the award twice with two different franchises - the third is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
