The 25 Best MVP Seasons in NBA History

12. Wilt Chamberlain (1966)

Team: Philadelphia 76ers
Stats: 79 G, 47.3 MPG, 33.5 PPG, 24.6 RPG, 5.2 APG
Player Efficiency Rating: 28.3

As was typical for Wilt, he led the league in both points (33.5) and rebounds (24.6) per game and continued to dominate the competition. During one game, he blocked Hall of Famer Gus Johnson's shot so hard that he actually dislocated Johnson's shoulder. Wilt was so good that the 76ers not only allowed him to live in New York during the season, but they in fact moved their practice schedule around so Wilt could sleep late in his NYC loft then report to Philadelphia for a late afternoon shoot around. He even skipped practice before Game 5 of the Finals, then promptly went out and put up 46 points and 34 rebounds in a losing effort.
