This year has been quite the eventful year in terms of the most valuable player in the NBA. Stephen Curry, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, Chris Paul and Anthony Davis have had the MVP word thrown at them a bunch of time this season, but the race is looking to be down to two players: Stephen Curry and James Harden. It’s your turn to decide who’s the MVP.
Stephen Curry has been un-real this season. Curry finished the regular season averaging 23.8 points, 7.7 assists, and 4.3 rebounds in 80 games, and Curry gave us a treat in those 80 games. From breaking his own three-point record for most threes in a single season, to making one of the NBA’s best in Chris Paul look like he is playing a game of Twister. Golden State also finished 67-15, 5 wins shy of tying the legendary 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls, who went 72-10.
Fear the bread. James Harden lead the Houston Rockets to the 2nd best team in the Western Conference without Dwight Howard by his side for 41 games, exactly half the season. Without Howard, James Harden has shown his true colors. Harden finished the regular season averaging 27.4 points, which only trailed Russell Westbrook’s 28.1, 7.0 assists, an 5.7 rebounds per game in 81 games. Harden lead the NBA in the most 30 point games this season, and the Rockets 56-26 record speaks for itself.
