SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — James Harden of the Houston Rockets is the NBA’s Most Valuable Player.

He joined Michael Jordan as the only players to average at least 20 points, eight assists, five rebounds and 1.7 steals in a season.

Harden led the league in scoring, 3-pointers and 50-point games with four while helping the Rockets to an NBA-leading 65 wins.

Harden beat out four-time winner LeBron James of Cleveland and Anthony Davis of the Pelicans.

He received the trophy at the NBA Awards on Monday night. Harden, who is from Los Angeles, led his mother on stage and credited her for being his backbone.

Not everyone agreed with the choice of Harden as MVP.

 

Who do you think the NBA MVP should have been?

  1. They (Harden and LaBron) are both VERY good players. With this vote, it could have gone either way. And, how can you argue with either one? So, while I like LaBron and wish he would have won…it’s hard to argue against Harden. Congratulations Harden…I am just glad they didn’t give it to anyone on the Warrior’s team! 🙂
