    They'll give it to Giannis because despite having a losing record it's because he has less help than Harden's stacked team. They'll say that with a straight face despite also saying Ryno has the worst contract in the league.

    LOL @KlutchQT! I'll keep an eye on it. But am well aware how STRONG the media #narrative is. Media has practically given Giannis the award already. He will have the stats, but likely the team record will be meh. But it won't matter because the media has already set the precedent on "wins not mattering" with the Westbrook awarding.

    Harden is efficient and 'boring' wins. Media wants Shiny, Sizzle and Storyline.

    Pretty much this

    Media has already decided Giannis or Lebron will win it this year. I imagine the new darling Porzingis could make a late push too. But yeah, Harden's not winning.

    Lol hardens not winning. We dont care anymore. Hope harden doesnt care anymore either.

    Screw it.

    On the extremely off chance he wins it, I hope his only statment on it is a passive aggressive “thanks”

    I spent so much time in this thread last year...I was so naive to think that Harden ever had a chance against the corrupt media

    this should be his year to win the award too, everything is lining up...we all know how this is gonna end tho...congratulations to your 2017-18 NBA MVP runner up, James Harden

    He should be playing for his third MVP award this year. It is sickening how the media can have the power to influence someone's legacy.

    Giannis won the MVP yesterday. He signed Nike, which controls ESPN. If Harden would switch Nike he will have 5 MVP awards cuz the best regular season player.

    All those third party non-official(ESPN) ranking means nothing.

    Nike did James no favors when he was signed

    Really hope Beard can snatch this award (or two) soon. He's a great all-time talent - and already a Top 10 SG all-time.

    Both runner-ups could've gone either way, but he wasn't screwed.

    Get FMVP (or two) too.

    I'm glad harden went to adidas.

    The gear is better and the nmd shoes are my favorite sneaker out.

    Best hope is Bucks remain around .500. OKC's win-total last year is better since West.

    LeBron won't win playing < 70 games.

    Rockets need to finish #2 or higher. If Two, settle within 7 games of the Warriors.
