Everybody is talking about Russel Westbrook and his performances this year. But we think that there is one player that can compete with his achievements this season, and who is even better in some areas.
Currently, America is divided between these two guys, and on one side you have Westbrook's supporters who are saying that OKC guard, has made history and that he did things this year that nobody before accomplished.
James Harden's fans are on other side, and they have their own point of view too. For them, Harden is not having much weaker statistical performances, and that he totally put aside his numbers because of his team. His game is subordinate to the whole group and in the end, he still manages to put down unreal performances.
Some of you are more likely to support this thesis.
And some of us will support that claim.
Yes, Russel Westbrook did break many records and him didi some amazing things, but Houston Rockets have much more success than Oklahoma City Thunder, and their record is much better.
Along with this,
Harden currently averages 29.2 points per game and he is second in the league and tops the league in assists with 11.4 per game and that is something fantastic. Also, he has 8.1 rebounds per night. That is not far away from Westbrook's stats.
Many people forgot that Houston Rockets guard leads the NBA in double-doubles. The Beard has 63 double-doubles this season, one more than Russell Westbrook, and that means that his performances are consistent as Westbrook's.
There is one statistical fact that proves our claim that Harden is better than Westbrook.
He is involved in 56.3 points scored by
Now, this is something that supports our claim that Harden is much more interested in his team performances than putting down numbers in his statistical columns.
We think that the most important proof
about Harden's value and the most reliable answer why should he get the MVP
Also in the last 36 years, there wasn't a situation where MVP award was given to the member of a team which had less than 50 victories. The last one was Moses Malone in 1982.
James Harden should receive the MVP award because he made his teammates better, and his team became much more serious. He didn't promote himself, but instead played more for the team than Russell Westbrook.
