Finals MVP on the losing team?

Much has been made about Danny Green's performance so far in the finals. We haven't seen the IcyHot (thank you 48moh) that was present throughout the regular season. He has been wonderful on offense and pretty good on defense as well. As long as he keeps his performance at the current level and there are no other crazy breakout performances, I absolutely see him winning the finals MVP should the Spurs win. But what if we don't win (not me being a pessimist, just aknowledging the small possibility)? With the previous caveats, I think he has been the MVP out of both teams. Have you seen anyone on the Heat who has had a standout performance throughout the finals? There has only been one player in NBA history to have won the finals MVP and be on the losing team (Jerry West, 1969 for the Lakers). Of course the series is not over yet and there is always the possibility of someone else stepping up and having that standout performance, but I wanted put that thought out there into the basketball world and see what other's thoughts and opinions are.
