Default Re: Harden should have been MVP

Harden was absolutely great this year, but the voter fatigue from last year factored in. He should have 3 MVPs.

That's what people dont understand, or do understand but excuse...

When CP3 and Capela went out, Harden came alive and absolutely dominated the league for months.

IIRC, even Eric Gordon was out for a few games during that stretch.

Giannis isnt dragging a team with PJ Tucker as their #2 to a winning record. Only Harden and Durant could. No player in the league will say Giannis is the hardest player to guard... that's Harden or Steph or Durant or LBJ.

Fact is, Harden should have already had multiple MVPs. There was some 30+ voters who voted for RWB two years ago based on "stats" then turned around and voted for Giannis this year based on "record".

Giannis has the narrative going for him. That's all.

The rockets with a capela, giannis, tucker, gordon, paul lineup are a top 10 defense pretty clearly however. Yea he's not in the upper echelon of offensive players but he's still pretty great and the defensive tradeoff makes the comparison worth talking about. I dont remember games where none of the rockets next 3 guys played but there were quite a few with only 1.
