In 1976-77 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar won the fifth NBA MVP trophy of his legendary career, placing him in a tie with the inimitable Bill Russell for the most MVP honors in NBA history. Abdul-Jabbar put together a season for ages in his second season with the Lakers in 1976-77, averaging 26.2 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 3.1 blocks per game in his eighth NBA campaign. The Lakers, led by head coach Jerry West and supported by the all-around hustle of ancillary stars Cazzie Russell and Abdul-Jabbar’s college teammate Lucius Allen, finished the regular season in 1976-77 with a 53-29 record and the Pacific Division title. The Lakers, returning to the playoffs for the first time since 1973-74, defeated the Golden State Warriors in the first round before falling to UCLA’s next great center, Bill Walton, and the Portland Trail Blazers in the Western Conference Finals.

Offered here is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 1976-77 Maurice Podoloff NBA MVP Trophy. This trophy measures approximately 49 inches tall and stands on a 13 x 13-inch base. A plaque on the base reads “National Basketball Association / Most Valuable Player / Kareem Abdul-Jabbar / Los Angeles Lakers / 1976-77” A smaller pedestal stands atop the base, and it is adorned with both a 10-inch tall statuette of a basketball player and a plaque that reads “Podoloff Trophy”. Four gold-colored columns support a plinth topped by four basketball player statuettes, each 6.25 inches tall, and a 26-inch high trophy, 11 inches of which are taken up by sixth basketball player statuette. This award is in good condition. This historically significant award derives directly from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and a personally hand-signed LOA from Kareem will accompany this item.
