    The thing is, now that Westbrook has already set the precedent that "record and team wins don't matter" the Bucks could finish with a mediocre 6th seed in the East and he could still win MVP because of media #narrative.

    Jimmy's about to go off. He's been playing possum the first few weeks b/c of an ankle tweak, a couple re-tweaks, and playing bad teams...but aggressive and explosive James is loading.

    MVP run numero tres.

    @ me.

    Anyone voting for a player in the Leastern Conference should have their ballot taken away.

    4-5 in the East Bucks. MVP MVP MVP.

    The narrative is about to join the ranks of the MLB. Wins don't matter.

    I have more faith that Michelle Beadle will show up at my house with 1 million dollars than that those swine voters will ever let Harden win it

    LOL at having a team that's 4-5 in the EAST FFS as leading the MVP ladder.

    This **** is hilarious.

    Hopefully someone on a non playoff team will win it to show just how pointless it has become

    I sincerely hope Harden just focuses on winning, as he and MDA admitted they both let it distract them! If he didn't get it last year, there's very little chance he will get it at all so couldn't care less anyway.

    so for the 2nd year in a row, basketball refrence has James Harden as their leader for MVP with a 36% chance to win out of 10 contestants. If you remmeber last year this same poll had Harden as the mvp winner in 2017, but westbrook still took home the award.

    Harden also had 44% of the vote out of 5 contestants in 2015


    WILL HARDEN GET ROBBED AGAIN

    Good lmao. Screw this media voted crap. Im done with caring and I hope harden is done caring also.

    Seriously, screw the media lmao. Guys like chris broussard really dont know nearly as much as they think they do about this game.

    Some media members are guys who tried to get coaching or gm gigs but werent smart enough. We denied kenny smith and chuck is on record as trying to get a gm job at points.

    If harden keeps up this level of play and remains top 4 seed. He's a lock for mvp.

    Who am I kidding, the media narrative won't ever allow this to happen

    Doesn't matter what Harden does. He's not winning.

    Congrats to Giannis or Lebron or whoever.
