1968 Connie Hawkins was announced as the winner by Louis Cox of the Dallas Times Herald chairman of the selection committee of the United States Basketball Writers Association.
1. "The Hawk" was named MVP on all but three ballots. On those he was second
2. Doug Moe of New Orleans Bucs was runnerup with three first places votes
3. Mel Daniels of Minneapolis was a close third
4. while Larry Jones of Denver was fourth
5. and Willie Somerset of Houston was fifth
In all, 29 players received votes

:D

Willie Somerset, of the Houston Mavericks, averaged 21.7 points per game in 1967-68. He didn't make the ABA all-star team that year, but he did the next season. In '69, with Houston and the New York Americans, he was 5th in the league in scoring (23.8 ppg) and 8th in assists.

That was his last season. At age 26, he was out of the league.
That 23.8 is the highest PPG of any player in his final season, ABA or NBA. (NBA : Bob Pettit 22.5)

He's one of only 5 players shorter than 5'9" to play as many as 5000 NBA+ABA minutes.

1974 ABA MVP RACE
Nets' Star Wins ABA Award Erving Voted MVP NEW YORK (UPI) -- Julius Erving. the fabulous "Doctor J" of the New York Nets who won the league scoring championship for the second straight season--was-voted the "Most Valuable Player", in the A m e r i c a n B a s k e t b a l l Association Monday. The 24-year-old, 6-foot, 7-inch forward won the honor for the 1973-74 season in runaway balloting by sports writers and broadcasters in the league's 10 cities, rolling up 49 votes to only nine for runner-up Artis Gilmore of the Kentucky Colonels. None of the other six players who were mentioned in the voting received more than two ballots. " Erving became the first player in history to win two straight scoring crowns by averaging 27.4 points per game as he led the Nets to a 55-29 regular season record and their first Eastern Division crown On the way to that performance, Erving* shot 39.5 per cent on three-point field goal tries, the best in the league, but he did not have enough attempts to qualify for the official title in long-range shooting.

Finally the cavalcade of the Most Valuabel Player Voting is ended with a lot of satisfaction. Thank you all for the help :D :D :D

NEW YORK (UPI) - The legend of "Dr. J." continues to grow. Erving, an exciting combination of power and finesse who "keeps people in the arena until the 48th minute," Monday received the 1976 ABA's most prized individual honor for the third year in a row when he was named Most Valuable Player by a near unanimous vote. In a balloting of 35 members of the media--five from each of the seven ABA cities--Erving received 32 first-place votes out 35 while Bobby Jones and David Thompson, the starting forwards on the Denver Nuggets, and James Silas of San Antonio Spurs each received one vote; Erving, the first player in ABA history ever to win the MVP three times, joins former National Basketball Association stars Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics and Wilt Chamberlain of the Philadelphia 76ers as the only players ever to win three consecutive MVP trophies in pro basketball. The inimitable Erving captured his third scoring title in the last four years this past season with a 29.3 points per game average. He also finished fifth in rebounding with 11.0 per game, eighth in two-point field goal percentage (.517), seventh in three-point field goal percentage (.330), seventh in assists (5.0), seventh in blocked shots (1.9) and third in steals (2.5).
