    I'm guessing, but James was first to thank "The Rockets" which I assume he means his team/teammates.

    I know Lebron wasn't there. Was Anthony Davis? I couldn't tell. What about Westbrook or Durant?

    Kinda felt disrespectful for so many of them to be missing...especially his fellow nominees. Maybe some of these guys were there and I didn't see em, but I don't think so.

    IDK, with that suit and those shades, he's looking kinda militant. So proud of you James! Way to play, boy!

    Harden has been my favorite player since before he became a Rocket.

    I always support him, even through his past struggles.

    That’s includes winging it during his iconic moment speech.

    I. Love. It.

    Nope most of the high profile guys weren't in attendance. Media loves to hate on Harden, but he always goes to these dumb ass shows knowing he is the loser.

    Kind of bullshit that the very last thing said on the broadcast was that fat guy in the red jacket saying Harden didn't have to play defense now. I mean dude just finally won after being robbed a few times and instead of giving him his moment, the haters trying to represent on the stage. That's some **** - **** that guy.

    Yo, first I snatched the stats then I smashed shot charts
    First I caught they ear, now I have they heart
    Ballers came and went, I been here from the start
    I seen them put rigs together, watched them make it an art
    Seen the worriers rolled up wit ribbons
    Seen they titles giftwrapped n given
    But I still reload, still aimin for number one position
    When I'm hot I'm HOT
    And when ya feet cold mines is sizzlin
    It's plain to see, defenders can't fcuk wit me
    Cause Ima have this popcorn machine poppin for life
    This aint no RefAid, this is God Given
    This is hard livin mixed with poledance strippin
    Year in year out the most consistent
    Give you the most bball reasons you can fit inside a whole season
    Silver I'm home at the top, yo golden boys just visitin
    It's H-town tradition
    I'll be back to claim Pole Position, holla at ya boy
    SWAG

    Jason Terry said Russ was the MVP back when his voice might have mattered in swaying the trip-double scrot swingers. Never forget.. not buying this tweet.

    The craziest thing about all of this is that, entering next year, Harden could've possibly been trying to win his 4th MVP and a B2B championship. It's kinda crazy how complete his resume could be. Should be 2X MVP at the very least, and probably should've beat Curry out as well. And we all know how we should've/could've won the ring this year.

    He's a comedian. He had to end with something funny. I'm glad he did tho........ makes Harden keep working towards becoming better.

    MVP

    wait until they start to re-run this speech finding a sound bite to define the remarkable year. It will all coagulate into one resounding, "SWAG!"
