Philippine Basketball Association Most Valuable Player award

The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) awards the Most Valuable Player award (MVP) at the end of the season. The winner is selected via votes from the press, players, coaches and top PBA officials.

Note that from 1975 to 2003, PBA seasons have three tournaments (or conferences), so the regular NBA application of having a regular season MVP and a Finals MVP and the meaning of "conference" doesn't apply here. The season MVP is for the whole season, including the regular season, the playoffs and the Finals of each Conference, although there is a Best Player of the Conference award for each conference, and a Best Import award for conferences where imports are allowed play.

Starting at 2004, instead of having a year long season (February to December, with a month's break in-between conferences), the season was reformatted so that there would be two conferences (tournaments) from October to June.

The winner was selected by the following format:

  • 30% cumulative statistical points (points, rebounds, assists, blocks, turnovers etc.)
  • 30% press and media votes
  • 30% players' votes
  • 10% four-man committee (representatives from the PBA Photographer's Group, SCOOP, the TV coveror and the Philippine Sportswriters Association)

With controversies with the selections, a new format was created starting at the 2006-07 PBA season:

  • 30% average statistical points
  • 30% press and media votes
  • 25% players' votes
  • 10% TV coveror (ABC Sports)
  • 5% Commissioner's Office [1]

MVP voting begins at the start of the Finals series of the last conference. All statisitical points gathered from all levels of competition (elimination/classification round and playoffs) are included.
