Naudingiausi žaidėjai pradėti rinkti nuo 1955-1956 m. Sezono. Nugalėtojui įteikiamas pirmojo NBA prezidento Maurice Podoloff garbei įsteigtas trofėjus. Tai pats prestižiškiausias asmeninis apdovanojimas, kurį gali iškovoti žaidėjas. Pirmuoju laureatu tapo legendinis Bobas Pettitas iš Saint Louis Hawks. Daugiausiai kartų aplamai šį trofėjų laimėjęs yra Kareem Abdul Jabbar – 6 kartai. Po 5 apdovanojimus pelnė Michael Jordan ir Bill Russell. Wiltas Chamberlainas ir Lebronas James turi po 4 apdovanojimus. Tiesa Lebronas vis dar tęsia savo sportinę karjerą ir yra tikimybė, kad gali dar iškovoti bent vieną trofėjų. Larry Bird, Moses Malone, Julius Erving ir Magic Johnson turi 3 apdovanojimus. Toliau septyni žaidėjai yra iškovoję po 2 trofėjus, tarp kurių vis dar žaidžiantys Stephen Curry ir Giannis Antetokounpo. Na ir dar 25 žaidėjai yra apdovanoti po 1 kartą, tarp kurių ir legendinis Kobe Bryantas. Kaip tokiam žaidėjui keistai mažokai. Tai gi lentelė su visais laureatais.
