    Funny to see guys like Windhorst & Simmons try to pass off their hate/dislike of Harden, write articles/do podcasts ... "Players don't like Harden!" -- No, you don't like Harden. Don't pass off your hate onto the players. Stop trying to hide behind the players. You don't like Harden.

    How Kawhi gets MVP votes, I have no idea. Obviously a great player but dude load manages and misses 15-20 games a year.

    Luka Doncic, obviously great too but 7th seed Luka Doncic? James Harden could NEVER get the 7th seed and get top 5 MVP votes.

    Obviously it's not MVP - most VALUABLE - everyone votes based on their favorite player, favorite narrative, favorite story line but how is James most valuable if Davis is 3rd "most valuable" and vice versa? How is Davis 3rd or 5th most valuable when James is 1st or 2nd?

    Pascal Siakam LOL

    LeBron called them the media out for being narrative driven, narrative voting (and we'll see what if anything changes? but they're like "You know, LeBron has a point. LeBron might be right.) LOL Harden said that **** last year "He's bitter! He's upset!" He's crying!")

    They probably thought Harden actually had help in Westbrook. Welp hopefully they all realize that he is just an anchor weighing the team down.

    Windhorst, Shams and Simmons can go suck a VD infected ****.

    Shams doesn’t know **** about actual basketball.

    Simmons is just a low quality person.

    Windhorst will die from a heart attack or stroke and it won’t be soon enough.

    Greg Anthony needs to stick to trolling for prostitutes.

    I don’t care. At this point they are making mockery of these awards. Harden is 3rd team NBA? So he is around the 5th or 6th best guard in the NBA?

    riiiiiiight

    Who you put on the ballot after the first 3 hardly matters. A player gets only 1 point (vs 10 for a 1st place vote) if they are fourth on the ballot, and I don’t think they get any if they are 5th. IOW, as a voter, the criteria you put into ranking candidates after the first couple doesn’t matter nearly as much.

    Elhassan, Windhorst and Young are 3 of the top "analysts" I hate, so I guess it makes sense.

    exactly most of these guys are cowards who hide behind fake made up sources and things that don’t exsist to try and make their point seem more believable. If they don’t like harden just come out and say it
