So by that logic, Lebron shouldn't get MVP because he has Kyrie, right?

Nothing funny about it, man.

Harden is leading his weaker team (much weaker with Dwight missing almost half the games so far) in a much tougher conference to a better record, and he's better statistically.

If LeBron is a top 3 MVP right now, Kyrie is top 5. Meanwhile Harden has maybe 3 above average players on his team (Beverly, Jones and Ariza, and obviously Dwight who's been injured).
Jones and Beverley have also been injured. Beverley has missed nearly 10 games. Jones has been gone since early November and may not come back until January. The Rockets have Harden, Ariza, D-Mo, Terry and a bunch of D-League level players surrounding them. We may have had an easy schedule so far, but the 14-4 record isn't a joke. We've beaten some good teams along the way, especially Memphis. We were obviously without Dwight, Jones and Beverley that game. Our backup PG, Isaiah Canaan (who is averaging 10 ppg) was gone too.

With all our early injury problems, Harden has been leading the pack. He's picked his shot up and has been playing great, averaging 25/7/6 on 58% TS. His man-to-man defense has improved tremendously and he's also averaging 2 steals and 1 block a game. Once all our injured guys come back and start playing like they did before their injury, the Rockets will look scary.
