We big time now.

Quote:


LAST WEEK: 29.3 ppg | 3.0 rpg | 5.0 apg
It's a shame that one of the first names people think of when the Houston Rockets come up is Royce White, the rookie forward who can't seem to get on the same page as the coaching staff and front office. Because Harden is putting together a spectacular season for a team that is poised to crash the playoff party. The Rockets have won seven of their past 10 games on the strength of Harden's energy, leadership and production (29.3 points, 5.1 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.8 steals during that stretch).

Those are some MVP-ass numbers tho. A lot will hinge on what record the Rockets have at the end of the regular season.

He's been on the list a few times now this year. Think the first week he was in the top 5(when he had those crazy games) but he has not been back there yet.

He's been playing like an MVP candidate in the month of December. I'm glad he's on this team

Great to see Harden in the conversation and getting recognition for his contribution to our team's success. Rockets are definitely trending up. On the strength of the last 10 games, we might be moving up even higher on Hollinger's power rankings (we're currently 5). I noticed that every team above the Rockets all had losses so with some luck we'll move up a spot or two. I know it's only a statistical ranking, but if it gets people talking about the Rockets, it can only help our chances of landing the next superstar player.

it can help our chances as long as he doesn't mess around and win the damn thing.

I hope Harden doesn't win MVP this season. If he does we'll have to pay him more during the upcoming seasons (a stipulation in his contract).

Van Gundy just showed some Rox love during the LAC-LAL broadcast, talking about how Harden needs to be in the MVP discussion.

JVG spreading his love for our glorious houston during the flop city broadcast, saying harden should be in serious mvp consideration. That what he and to a lesser extent lin have brought to the rockets has been impressive, an offensive juggernaut.

Also said he's nervous for the Texans game.
