    As much as Harden deserves MVP, Lebron can have one triple double and all you'll see is "Wow. Lebron James is my vote for MVP". Harden doesn't get NEARLY the love he deserves for the incredible regular season he's having. IMO, this season is more impressive than Westbrook's season last year

    Everywhere is saying he's the undisputed MVP frontrunner right now. Basketball reference gives him a 72% chance to win. ESPN has him as the clear cut #1.

    What more could he get to get the love he deserves?

    Kellerman's vote, plus a big long loud Kellerman rant to go with it

    Probably not going to happen anytime soon



    (Thought about starting a new thread because we haven't had a Kellerman thread in awhile. But basically, OKC is "built for the playoffs" and Houston isn't. Houston's players have had playoff letdowns.... not considering that Westbrook made it to the Finals with Harden, the WCF with Durant (Harden made it to WCF with Howard) and that Harden and the Rockets easily beat Westbrook and OKC last year. I'm sick of that argument)

    This is very exciting but recent history has me very concerned because they/everyone is just hiding in the weeds, waiting to burst out proclaiming I told you so. It's so unfair that I hope James wins it and doesn't show up to the NBA Awards. One big giant FU to all the haters for undeservedly treating him and their vote that way.

    I posted this awhile back. These stats are pretty basic, I didn't factor PER or anything. But this was essentially one year ago. Not saying anyone is right or wrong, but this was related so wanted to share again.

    Nice to see the Thunder's big victory over a terrible team, thanks to a last-second shot, is causing such excitement.

    Go Thunder! No need to actually PROVE anything first, just go ahead and book that trip to the finals NOW.

    Need to rest him some games down the stretch as the MVP is in the bag.

    He has a big lead. I don't see who else will be able to come close at this point. He has the best stats and record.

    Harden’s season last year was more impressive than Westbrook’s. : )
