(Video) NBA: Harden or Westbrook? Kobe Bryant Says ‘We Might See Our First Co-MVPs’

We’ve got another heated race for NBA MVP; this time instead of Stephen Curry, James Harden is now up against his former teammate, Russell Westbrook.  Fans are split between the two guards and there’s the age-old debate about team status vs. player stats.  The Houston Rockets currently have the No. 3 spot in the Western Conference while the Oklahoma City Thunder are sitting at No. 6, but Harden is averaging 29. 4 points, 8 rebounds, and 11.3 assists while Westbrook is averaging a triple-double of 31.3 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 10.4 assists.  Will “The Beard” lose out again?  Kobe Bryant says we could end up with co-MVPs for the first time.


NBA: 32 Front Office Execs Including 20 GMs Make Their MVP Pick

Stephen Curry was the back-to-back NBA MVP including the first unanimous vote last season.  This season is much different as there’s no clear-cut frontrunner.  Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook has been dazzling fans as he is close to joining Oscar Robertson as the only other player to average a triple-double for an entire season.  James Harden (who many people have on top) added playmaking to his repertoire after switching to point guard and has the Houston Rockets looking like title contenders.  Kawhi Leonard kills on both ends of the court, leading the San Antonio Spurs to the best record in the league currently.  Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James is having one of the best individual seasons of his storied career and would become just the fourth player to win at least five MVP honors if he was selected.  Isaiah Thomas and John Wall are dark horses as their teams have turned things around, but for the most part, it’s a four-player race.


(Video) NBA: League Gives Kawhi Leonard a Drug Test Immediately After MVP Performance Over Rockets

Of all the professional sports leagues in America, the NBA is either the most lax in the rules or has the least amount of players using performance-enhancing drugs.  The NBA tests players randomly four times during the season and twice during the offseason, and it’s extremely rare that a player gets in trouble for PEDs.  Nonetheless, San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard was given a drug test immediately after his incredible MVP performance over the Houston Rockets.


(Video) NBA: James Harden Invented A New Way To Draw A Foul Last Night Against The Bulls

image via: IFWT IG The Houston Rockets won a very exciting game against the Chicago Bulls last night, winning in overtime by a score of 121-117. After the game however, more people were talking about the foul that James Harden drew on Michael Carter-Williams, than the outcome of the game itself. Harden had 42 points, 12 rebounds and missed a triple double by just one assist but more importantly he may have figured out a way to draw even more fouls moving forward.

NBA: James Harden Says He’s the League MVP

When asked who’s the best, most athletes will almost always say themselves; it’s the attitude you’re supposed to have.  So it was no shock when James Harden chose himself as the NBA MVP.  He no doubt still carries a chip on his shoulder after losing out on the award to Stephen Curry during a season in which they were neck and neck.  But Harden didn’t name himself just cause, he gave reasons why.

NBA: James Harden Says He’s the Best Point Guard & Player in the League

I remember back when James Harden was playing with the Oklahoma City Thunder and many fans were clamoring for him to be the point guard and move Russell Westbrook to shooting guard.  Alas, it never quite happened and Harden was shipped off to the Houston Rockets when the Thunder declined to give him what he was worth.  Harden remained a shooting guard on the Rockets, but this season with Mike D’Antoni at head coach, Harden has been moved to the 1 and it’s worked out.


NBA: James Harden Shoots Down Any “Beef” Between Himself & Dwight Howard

James Harden and Dwight Howard can deny it all they want but they weren’t big fans of each other in Houston. It started off promising when Howard came to the Rockets from the Lakers but it didn’t take long to see it wasn’t a match made in heaven. All they got out of their time together was some mediocre basketball and a few playoff runs that really never had a chance from the start. As they prepare to face off as opponents this week with Howard in Atlanta with the Hawks now, Harden is still shooting down any talk that there was ever a beef.
