    Harden is far and away the best player in the world and if he’s snubbed from mvp it’ll be the biggest snub in all of sports history

    Can grab other players and have them get called for the foul. Can knock others over and have them get called for the foul. Can step back twice and not get called for it. Harden is good in the sense that he can get away with a lot!! But Giannis is just plain ole good.

    Giannis has elevated his teammates (along with Budenholzer), won more, is a DPOY candidate, plays 5 or 6 less minutes, takes 7 less shots. The stats and advanced stats are a give and take, it’s your flavour.

    Harden has torn the league up individually this season. Brought Houston back and scored at an all time rate.

    Both deserve it. I would choose the one who won more because it’s so tight and because of all around play.

    Remove Giannis from the bucks and you have a lottery pick team with little offence and little defence remove harden from the rockets and you get a lot less offensive but possibly better defence also lots not act like Chris Paul couldn’t carry that rockets team

    Stephen A Smith doesn’t like to look at facts or stats. He just likes to have a shouting match.

    I believe Giannis could end up in the next 3 or 4 years to be the best player in the league but Harden deserves the MvP

    More FG% less minutes can make u a better scorer even with less points i d say. Dont forget the DPOY Giannis might also get. I exclude team winning and i stick to rating. Visit player’s rating at nba.com and see the results.

    Harden will be robbed this year. People hate greatness, hate seeing the same winner every year, and it is about the best player not the best team dum dum!
