Kobe Bryant: James Harden deserves to be named MVP

Kobe Bryant: James Harden deserves to be named MVP”

On the other hand, James is looking to tie Michael Jordan by earning his fifth NBA MVP after playing all 82 games with the Cavaliers this season for the first time. Harden's numbers dipped somewhat from his outstanding near-triple-double average a year ago, but he led the Rockets to 65 wins and the top seed in the Western Conference.

The 28-year-old has led the National Basketball Association in scoring all season including three games where he scored 50-plus points.

His performances are particularly noteworthy due to the circumstances the 2016 National Basketball Association champions have experienced this season with various injuries and the recent absence of head coach Tyronn Lue due to illness as they finished third in the Eastern Conference.

Both men make compelling MVP cases, but according to Kobe Bryant, the award should go to James Harden.

Jalen Rose had a tough time picking between Harden and LeBron James, and while The King has had an unreal 15th season, Harden's collective efforts have simply translated into wins more effectively than James, delivering plenty of wonderful performances throughout the season. "I just don't know what there is left for him to do to be MVP". Pictured: James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets and Kobe Bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers wait on the court during their game at Toyota Center on December 12, 2015, in Houston, Texas.

In an appearance on ESPN's "Get Up" Tuesday morning, Bryant said he feels Harden deserves the nod over LeBron this year.

"I really don't understand the debate about picking somebody else". "Like, what the hell does this guy have to do?" James averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists but posted a plus.minus rating of 1.2, the worst since his rookie year. I mean, come on now.
