    How you leave out the very best player in the bubble?

    Don't care. I just hope Harden can finally lead us to the promised land, even if he is short handed, would make it that much more epic.

    Clutch nailed it. Harden’s numbers are so unbelievable that people just ignore it now.

    Luka is a statpadder in the same way westbrook was, but the media overlooks this, if he wasnt playing for stats so much. the mavs would have a better record.

    "harden always produces gawdy stats in the bubble season. but we need to see it against the warriors. don't get me wrong, he's a great offensive player, but i'd like to see him expend some energy on D as well. you know defense is half the game. he need to work his way up to top 5 luka first, then we can talk about adding him to the conversation errrnie"

    What does 1st team bubble really get someone? You must know by now, if one isn’t mentioned than one doesn’t really exist. Harden doesn’t play right and his stats are cheap. He is just a system player.

    (It’s crazy how much he is just disrespected over and over)

    said it before and i'll say it again. these awards should be done by computer, take the bias human element out

    watch next year luka is gonna be on first team all nba over harden. they wanted to do it this year, and a lot of media members did put luka over harden. to fix this ****, you gotta take the human element out. Harden is gonna lose that battle every time. If Rockets somehow one the title. the media members would vote another player on the team finals mvp just because stephen curry doesnt have one yet

    Harden has only had like 2-3 very good games in the bubble, hasn't he? but maybe they're just 2-3 good games by the lofty standards I've set for him now... Haven't been paying enough attention, and have been paying even less attention to other teams. Bring on the playoffs. I'm sure injuries and the refs are going to bend us over again, but I'd rather bitch about that than a silly NBA.com tweet.

    harden put the 24th best game in nba history on luka doncic and outplayed him head 2 head. i dont see the fascination with luka, he is statpadding but it gets overlooked.

    I agree that Luka seems to be overrated at the moment (though he's probably going to be running the NBA alongside Giannis within a couple years), but again, who cares.

    After we were basically robbed at gunpoint in front of millions of witnesses in the 2018 WCF, and no charges were ever pressed, I don't care about anything but winning a title. I want proof that the basketball gods don't hate us. I already know the rest of the world does, and they can suck it.

    I'm assuming they are giving to younger players who don't usually get many awards.

    I guess Harden here is a victim of high expectations.
