    harden definitely deserves to be in the conversation but I think anthony davis is more likely to get it

    Davis won't get it because his team will likely miss the playoffs.

    MVP will be a tough reward to give out this year, a lot of players playing well right now in the west.

    Harden deserves to be in the conversation but I think Curry has him right now and Lebron and Durant are still playing in the NBA and we all know what they're capable of.

    If the Rockets can keep reeling off wins against contenders while missing half their starting lineup then Harden is the real MVP, imo. But the media will probably over look that.

    I think Harden is reaching a maturity level where he cares more for team wins than individual honors. He knows the honors will come when the team wins in the playoffs.

    So that's his target so far. I like it that with Dwight's injuries and our winning in spite of it, Harden has cemented that this is his team NOW. And every guy on the roster has followed his lead. It has united the team; everyone has bought in.

    This is the classic "whole is greater than the sum of its parts" team.

    Going by his reputation in the houston area, he may be a lot of people's daddy

    This year is his perfect opportunity if he is going to win one. Durant hurt, Lebron experiencing chemistry and defense problems on new team, and Anthony Davis's team isn't good enough.

    Davis is the JJ Watt of the NBA.

    He is the JJ Watt of the NBA, but neither of them will win MVP. Your team has to be a winning team in order to win that award. Both the Texans and Pelicans will miss the playoffs this year.

    I would like to thank those that criticised his defense last season. And that loss to Portland is a blessing in disguise.

    Did you know:

    James Harden is averaging more blocks per game than Omer Asik right now.

    Davis better not win MVP unless the Pelicans finish in the Top 6 in the West. Just eeking into the playoffs isn't enough. Right now if their respective teams can maintain their level of play, you have to put Curry, Gasol(the one not named Pau), and Harden in the top 3. And Harden should get special consideration given how he's kept the Rockets winning with the roster in the shape its in.

    Somebody retweeted it on my Twitter feed. Thought it was worth sharing, if nothing groundbreaking.
