Taylor Rene: James Harden is the MVP whether you like it or not
James Harden won the MVP award last night over LeBron James and Anthony Davis by lifting the Rockets to the best record in the NBA, and leading the league in scoring. Harden made it through the brutal Western Conference, while LeBron was able to cruise to another NBA Finals appearance against the weak competition in the Eastern Conference. Harden's performance in the playoffs wasn't strong, but he was fantastic in the regular season. Besides, at least Harden was able to help to force a Game 7 against the Warriors, and LeBron didn't even win a game.
