    Defense is not a factor in the MVP voting anymore, such a shame. All the fools that think Harden>Lebron are delusional. I know that Harden has more steals than LBJ, but we all know thats BS. BEARDED BLACK DUDE GO WATCH THE FULL GAMES, NOT HIGLIGHTS AND STATS.

    Leading the league in scoring and assists does not automatically make you mvp, its called most valuable player. not best scorer and passer. The cavs without Lebon james, 25 or less wins. the rockets without harden. still 40+ wins

    So the Cavs need all of these all star level players to barely make it out as the first seed in the Eastern conference, yet this fool Max is insisting LeBron as this year's MVP with his only argument that the opposing player is winning by the "function of a system"?
    I swear Max is a fucking idiot.

    Lemme get this straight Lebron is at the peak of his career but his team is in 6th place. Idk why y’all are so obsessed with this cocky cry baby but it’s annoying yeah he’s good but y’all definitely overhype him. Championships are what matters the best record in NBA history is what matters there are the things that will go down and stay in history new amazing players come every season he’s not going to be remembered like Michael Jordan or magic Johnson but y’all treat him like he’s on their level

    love how max wants to give it to lebron even though he thinks brady doesnt deserve MVP over wentz. Harden has the most points and is on one of the top 2 teams in the NBA. Wentz has the most touchdowns and is on one of the top 2 teams in the NFL. similarities between Lebron and Brady? Older players having some of their best seasons yet who have are one of the top 3 teams in the league and have managed to ascend their teams to impressive wining streaks. PROOF Max is biased as fuck and not a true analyst, literally wants to give it to Lebron who s doing the Exact same things as Brady, and wont acknowledge Harden who is doing exactly what Wentz is doing even though he said "Wentz is the clear MVP". Dude needs to stop being such a bitch and admit he doesnt know what hes talking about.

    If we can remember that MVP is short for Most Valuable Player, then are you seriously going to say that you would pick anybody other than LeBron for best and most valuable player this year. Best player out there all around. Arguably LeBron has deserved it every year for the past 6-7 years. Along with Jordan and Kobe he is one of the best to ever play.

    I can't fuck it with people saying that Lebron is MVP because he has better efficiency. James Harden is the number scorer on his team and is forced to take shots for the team, obviously his efficiency is gonna be lower. The guy is the number 1 scoring option and still he is at the top of the list for assist two years in a role. Also Harden has better defense than Lebron this year. Give this guy some credit.

    Were talking about 1 man the most valuable player obviously it's LeBron James it has been since 2004 every year since then he's the greatest player in the world so if he's the greastest player in the world then that would easily qualify as most valuable 15th season and the man is averaging 28-9-8 uhhh I'm sorry and he's not only been to the finals he's won this man is so used to being in the finals it would be an upset for him not to be there harden hasn't won a finals so he doesn't have that experience of what it takes which LeBron does ohhh yea and harden has the most turn overs in the history of the NBA this is not even a discussion

    All these people saying "Harden didn't get it last year so he should automatically win it this year". MVP should go to the best player that year not the runner up from last. James Harden is great, but he has a top 5 coach with Chris Paul and a phenomenal bench. LeBron has a shitty coach and worse supporting cast from last year. Also LeBron is like 34 and still in his prime.
    (Edit: Forgot to mention Harden's shitty defense)

    I guess it depends what MVP really means.
    Lebron james increased his totaly FG % by 8%. He is just way better then he was before.
    He is playing some insane defense and he is taking less shots.
    His efficiency is way better and he's scoring more points with less shots.
    He is shooting 25-50% LESS free throws then any of the last 14 seasons.
    JAMES HARDEN TAKES MORE THEN TWICE THE AMOUNT OF 3. that lebron takes and he shoots about 3.5 times more then lebron per game.
    If you use that same efficiency with more shots and assume lebron will get the calls he does later on in the season....LBJ would be averaging 35 points straight up.
    However, he is picking which teams to play good defense on. In just half of a game lebron james got 5 steals and shoot 78% from the field.
    Lebron is the best player in the league right now. It's that simple.
    MVP wise....The houston wouldn't do anywhere near as good without harden. Harden doesnt do well like lebron every year.
    So Harden stands out more.
    You guys have to understand that Lebron james is basically leading the league in shooting efficiency. Deandre jordan with that 63%+ fg is just shooting 2's. 60% 2's is similar to 40% 3's
    Lebron is 59%...........................................
    Harden taking mroe then double the amount of Lebrons 3s.
    So of course harden has more points. His team is used to harden being the play maker and carrier. So he will lead in assist.
    The one thing that makes Harden weak is his defense. That's really it.
    One of these 2 have to win. If anyone else wins i will ignore MVP from now on.
    The sad thing is most NBA players are not too educated and they dont critically think. LEBRON james is not only having one of the best seasons of his career but i dont think you'll ever see any other play in the history of basketball to be this efficient on shooting, making plays, AND play hard defense. You will NEVER see that again.
    Harden...you'll see plenty of players who will turn into an offensive goat.
    Think of Kobe and all the great scorers minus MJ. They are all volume shooters and this is why Hardens % is low.
    Harden however, is leading the league in most 3's made and he is shooting 40% from the field. 3% less thenlebron but he shots the ball more.
    Honestly, if you want to talk shit about lebron. Talk shit about how he passes so much and doesnt shoot the ball enough.
    At this point.....being a ball hog is actually a good thing for lebron.
    That's what we have to deal with now lol.

    Max needs to just stick to analyzing boxing. Harden was averaging 29 pts and 7.5 assts when McHale was the coach. The only stat that really increased, was his assts. Harden could produce in any system. He's not a system player.

  • HarpoSpoke
    HarpoSpoke 4 days ago

    Sounds like the 90s when people would try to think up reasons why someone other than MJ should be the MVP.
    We all know what the award means. It says it right in the title. "most valuable player". Lebron is the most valuable player every year just like MJ was in the 90s. That is the player every GM would pick first if they got the chance. Not one single team in the league would pick Harden if they had a choice between him and Lebron to add to their roster. The Rockets would trade Harden for Lebron today and everyone would laugh at the Cavs for being taken to the cleaners in the trade.
    But people get bored and that's how Charles Barkley, Westbrook, Malone, and Curry win MVPs.
