There are other usual suspects like LeBron James (Cleveland), Stephen Curry (Golden State) and Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City) of course, but after yesterday’s night performance against the Trail Blazers (42 points, six rebounds, and seven assists) the MVP race has been decided. It’s over, unofficially at least, unless of course Harden gets injured and misses the rest of the season. Continue Reading →
