It makes it interesting until the same people talking rings ignore Bill Russell and the rest of the 60s Celtics.
Finals MVP is another fun one.
Russell came into the league playing with the league mvp winner and ROY. He also never had to win 4 series in a year. For 8 titles he only had to win 2 series. From 1984 and onward you had to win 4 series a year for a title. Russell won 25 series for 11 titles, MJ 24 series for 6 titles, so basically the same considering all things.
