West averaged 30 points, 3.9 rebounds and 7.5 assists in 18 playoff games. West averaged 38 points, five rebounds and 7 assists in that 1969 Finals.

The 1969 decision to select West, from the losing team, as the Finals MVP will serve as the precedent of choosing LeBron James win or lose. James is averaging 36.6 points, 12.5 rebounds and 8.8 assists, a whopping statistical numbers in the Finals.
