It’s tough to fault Rockets GM Daryl Morey for jumping at the chance to add a player like Chris Paul. But alongside Harden, it figures to be an odd fit.
Is Eric Gordon going to be the odd man out for the Rockets this offseason? If they want Paul Millsap or Gordon Hayward, it may have to be Ryan Anderson.
Game 6 of Rockets/Spurs reflected exactly what the end of Game 5 showed: Harden and company had run out of gas. That falls at the feet of Mike D’Antoni
The Cavs just ran through two mediocre opponents in 8 games. But that’s just it: they were mediocre, and Cleveland still has plenty of work to do.
It’s hard to take much away from two blowouts—one for each side, no less. But if Kawhi Leonard defends James Harden full-time, what’s the likelier outcome?
We’ve tackled all of the individual player awards, but who gets into our various All-NBA teams? Tough decisions were more common than you may have thought.
LeBron James definitely isn’t going to win the NBA MVP Award this season, but that doesn’t mean he’s still the league’s best player.
Forget about the triple-double. The player James Harden was in the regular season provided more value to his team than anyone else. That makes him MVP.
Look, averaging a triple-double is remarkable, and Russell Westbrook should be commended. But is it MVP worthy? Not quite. And we’ll tell you why.
One of these years, Kawhi Leonard’s all-around talent is going to net him an NBA MVP Award. Unfortunately for him, it’s not this year. So why is that?
LeBron James is the best player in basketball, and that’s still impossible to dispute. But for various reasons, he’s not the most valuable. Not this year.
Don’t let his 40-point performance against the Cavaliers fool you—D’Angelo Russell has been rather underwhelming thus far. Just how much, you ask? Well…
The three-point shot is absolutely a viable option in the NBA, but team’s dependence on it in recent years means it needs to be revisited for a few reasons.
We’re nearing the halfway point of the 2016-17 NBA season, and guess what? Joel Embiid is an MVP candidate. Or at the very least, he should be.
There once was a time when OKC had Westbrook, Harden and Durant. How is it that they didn’t experience more success with one another?
James Harden was a superstar waiting to happen surrounded by two players who already were. C.J. McCollum may be on a similar path in Portland.
There’s plenty of basketball left to be played this NBA season, but if we had to pick an MVP, Rookie and Coach of the Year now, who would get the nod?
