    Didn't have Harden in his top five.

    Chris, I'm embarrassed for you.

    Ranking Harden 3rd is silly but at least borderline plausible.

    Ranking him 6th (or lower) after Chris Paul means you don't take voting seriously or you simply can't operate within the wide bounds of a subjective award.

    Edit: I guess it's the former, LOL he already apologized:

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Was an oversight on my part. I [thought] I voted Harden No. 3 for MVP. My list I posted soon after submitting ballot <a href="http://t.co/OQ8lFMciN7">http://t.co/OQ8lFMciN7</a></p>&mdash; Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) <a href="https://twitter.com/ChrisBHaynes/status/595246863302823937">May 4, 2015</a></blockquote>

    "Rocket Hater" Hubie Brown had Harden as his MVP, will that shut people up, now?

    Like the 4th Place votes that ensures that Harden wouldn't have enough points to take the crown...who cares.

    There is no argument for Harden below 2. None. That's just as stupid as leaving him off.

    That's what happens to fans when your franchise doesn't accomplish anything significant for two decades, it's a bit embarrassing.

    This is why I don't take the MVP award very seriously.

    I don't understand why fans on the one hand constantly complain that the sports media are a joke yet on the other hand invest so much self-worth in the results of their voting.
