Default Harden should have been MVP

Face it, Harden has an incredible regular season and actually had a very good playoff run (35/7/6 against the Warriors).

Giannis is a great player but overrated a little bit (he is not in my top 5). Harden was more impressive (basically averaged 40ppg over the last half of the season).

Harden carried the Rockets when they had injuries to deal with in the regular season.

Bucks won 60.

Since you Bransvestites love advanced stats...

Giannis led the league in PER, had a higher TS%, averaged less turnovers, and had a far lower USG%.

Rockets underachieved.

Bucks overachieved.

OP schooled... again.

It all came down to wins. Had the Bucks not finished with the best record in the league, Harden probably would've won it.

27.7, 12.5, 5.9 with a 64TS% and 60 wins is now "just good "

Oh and elite defense.

Defense Harden could never dream to emulate.

Chris Broussard made a good point about this. Harden was on the team when his team fell to 11-14 before the injuries hit and everybody was healthy. Yet he gets credit out of bringing them out of the slump. Sure, he was great but he shouldn't get props for that.

Giannis was great the whole year.

This.

Harden was definitely amazing but I give the nod to Giannis.

Uhh so was Harden. When the Rockets were 11-14, Harden was averaging 30/8/6/2 on 61% TS. Then he started pouring those ridiculous scoring numbers for the rest of the season

When the injuries hit, that's when Harden started his 30 point streak.

They wouldnt have made the playoffs if Harden didnt take over.
