The Rockets overachieved our recency bias.

Harden’s stats are consistent to or better this year than they were that ’15 season. Plus he was in competition for the mvp with a red hot Curry on a 65+ wins Warriors squad. I don’t see a way an argument can be made that his stats don’t backup an MVP award, and I don’t see enough voters feeling comfortable enough to assign the award to someone on a sub 50 win team that won’t have home court advantage at any stage of the playoffs.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
