    Max, you said LeBron is MVP this season. Did last night prove it's Harden?

    No, not at all. The entire time I've made the argument about LeBron is the 2nd season (playoffs) is so long, 16 of 30 teams make it, and the MVP never comes from a non-playoff team, why are we handing it out for the regular season? I get push back all the time. Well Max, this is a regular season award. OK, so we're talking regular season. Where LeBron missed 0 games, Harden missed 8. Per game stats were close, they had fewer wins than the Rockets Max! Yes, his teammates weren't worth as many wins. Harden has better teammates & is rewarded in the standings. Even if you want to say, what about now?! Doesn't it mean he's over the choking hump? Let's check back at the end of the playoffs. LeBron will put up monster numbers. If it's not good enough, it's because his teammates aren't.

    ...Would I give it to AD over Harden? Probably yes. That makes me seem like a hater. Harden is filthy. He's nasty on offense, even when he can make it boring with a lot of trips to the line. Even when he gets to travel when he steps back. If refs want to give him the step back, fine. I'm not hating on Harden. I just don't think he's better or more valuable than LeBron or AD this year.

    Quality of teammates affects team wins. He's getting credit for the quality of his teammates. He is helping them but he has better teammates than LeBron and therefore better wins.

    SAS: Why does he have better teammates?

    Daryl Morey is a better GM.

    This also works with Westbrook in LeBron's place. How handy!

    LeBron didn't want to extend his contract. Kyrie left. He hurt his team by not extending. His actions made them worse, directly. You cant hurt your team that much and be most valuable. Why are we still talking about this.

    Not sure it matters. Someone like Fatt who can't fit into a Rockets jersey shouldn't be talking about MVP

    Truth is Harden has been the MVP of Houston Sports for 5 years running

    All this talk is talk. If harden gets an asterisk for not being Jordan, I'll take it and shove it in every haters face.

    If he step back travel plus an and 1 his way to a ship, eat it.

    Eat it good because the media will flip, haters.
