Who the hell are you to question someones basketball knowledge then make that statement?

How many MVP considerations has ANYBODY ever got playing 25\5\5 ball on a average team?

Yup. Harden won't win it, but his profile will definitely be elevated if Houston keeps on winning.

Rocket is not an average team rocket as of now is a top 10 team in all power rankings. Its better than any of those 08 09 Heat team Wade stat pads on.

Rocket is not an elite team so Harden will not get top3 mvp votes so no real chance, however will be consider 5-8 somewhere.

Wade fans are so insecure

As a Heat fan if I had an mvp vote right now I'd give it to Harden. Clutch, young team, great court vision, makes his teammates better, doing it big on a team expected to do nothing. Lebron plays with Wade and Bosh, Durant plays with Westbrook, CP has the best bench and Griffin. Harden doing it big with Jeremy Lin And you ****** act like he deserves no mention in the MVP race

Insecure about what? Wade had 8 seasons better then Harden this year.

He's putting up 25\5\5 on a 21-14 team, this is nothing MVP worthy.

25/5/5 is very impressive considering he is sharing the team with Lin who has the ball in his hands a large portion of the game. With the ball in his hands more he could easily increase those averages.

When you watch him play you see that most teams don't have an answer for him and he fits perfectly in an uptempo offense since he is often unstoppable in transition (leads NBA in fastbreak PPG). His IQ is high and has a very well rounded offensive game in the halfcourt creating his own shot and shots for others. He is also 5th in steals last time I checked.

He is the biggest reason the Rockets are winning games. I think that makes him a legit MVP candidate if they continue being successful.
