    Paging Bima. Does this earn him any additional bonuses?

    Question is why didn't Capela make the All NBA 3rd team. He is a star.

    No other Rocket even received a vote, yet four Warriors did (Curry, Klay, Green, Bogut)

    He is only 25, will be better in each another year. The rockets are just luck to able to get him after the failure of the Pau Gasol trade.

    Do we get to see who voted how for these? I would assume Ding left Harden off his 1st team ballot, if not off his ballot altogether.

    All NBA first team multiple times in a career almost locks you for the HOF. Just think about it this way. All time great guards and small forwards such as Reggie Miller and Paul Peirce have zero first team all-NBA awards. Harden is also only 25. I see hopefully another 4 1st teams in his career.

    Mcgrady is the only player I know with multiple first team awards who isn't a lock for the HOF.

    Well earned.

    Harden showed more defense and leadership this year.


    Great season, Beard

    that pretty much tells you harden is the mvp... the warriors are loaded team with or without curry, hell you could swap curry for ramon sessions and they would still win 55 games with kerr coaching them.. take harden off this team and we are in the lottery, probably up there with the knicks especially this year with all the injuries
