James Harden, love him or hate him, is one of basketball’s best scorers right now. His sneaky game including dribble moves that can beat you off the dribble or create separation for a stepback three is nothing to mess with.
That sneaky game gave him an MVP award in 2017 and officially put The Beard on the map as one of the best players in the NBA. However, as Harden continued to put in record performances on the court, his recognition as an MVP candidate wasn’t as strong in 2018.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scooped the 2018 MVP award due to his size and length dominating on the court. I personally thought Giannis deserved the MVP award, and apparently so did people who’s opinion matters more than mine.
But that didn’t seem to sit well with Harden, who thought he deserved the MVP over Giannis.
