Should Harden win NBA MVP again

NBA News: James Harden sees himself as an MVP again

James Harden of the Houston Rockets is unstoppable right now. Against the Boston Celtics, the bearded man scored 45 points again. The incumbent MVP therefore wants to repeat its success from the previous year. The Shooting Guard also found a few words for its critics after the game.

"I should definitely be in the MVP conversation again," said Harden after defeating the Celtics, which he gave 45 points. It was the eighth time the Guard of the Rockets scored 40 or more points this season.

"I am often harshly criticized, but I don't let that stop me. I just destroy every evening and I'm a tough dog. That's how I am." The Rockets have now won eight of the last ten games, with Harden putting on an amazing 38.8 points per game and also distributing 8.2 assists.

These performances were also necessary because Chris Paul is absent with a hamstring injury. The 388 points are the most counters over 10 games since Kobe Bryant between March and April 2007 (396).

Harden: MVP racing is just about me

The Rockets are now with a balance of 19-15 and now occupy sixth place in the competitive Western Conference. Should Harden actually become MVP again, he would be the 14th player to win at least two MVP trophies, the 12th who would do this back-to-back.

If Harden has his way, he should be able to do it anyway. "You are welcome to name a few other names that might also have a chance at the MVP, but if you look at it realistically, I'll get the award again."
