Surprised by two things on here. 1. LeBron has only won once. 2. Chamberlain's dominance. I know he was dominant, but every time I see the numbers, I am just in awe of just how incredible he must have been to watch (except during free throws).

Excluding Kobe and Jordan, it seems like for the most part, being the scoring champion doesn't correlate to success in the Finals.

There's a mistake. 1968 isn't Bing. He was 2nd that year. Oscar Robertson was 1st.

I added a caveat. Prior to 1970, scoring titles were awarded based on total points scored, not on a per-game average.

James Harden may be the current scoring champ, but he is also the worst (read: laziest) defender in league history. Here's just a smattering: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eKEhKfsIjo
