Although Russell Westbrook has broken all records and for the second consecutive year has averaged a triple-double, it seems very clear that the MVP of the regular season has another owner. And we say it seems very clear because the work of James Harden at Houston Rockets has been impeccable. ‘The Beard’ has guided his team to the best record of the competition (lead of the West included) unseating the current champions Golden State Warriors. It has also managed to adapt to the arrival of another star like Chris Paul and currently are the top favorites to take the NBA championship ring (with permission from Steve Kerr and his boys).
Another one that seems to have it very clear is Kobe Bryant, who recently in an interview to the program ‘Get Up’ of ESPN has indicated that Harden has shown from the party number 1 to the 82 that deserves the aforementioned award after being on the doors last year .
Harden, in his debut in the playoffs, led the offense with 44 points, 8 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 101-104. Also, their regular season numbers were 30.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 8.8 assists and 1.8 steals in 35.4 minutes on the pitch.
