NBA 2018 Awards Finalist Announced

The NBA has announced the finalist for the 2018 Awards.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden has never won the NBA MVP award. He finished second to Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook. Could this year finally be the year he wins the MVP race?

He leads the league in scoring (31.5 points per game) and ranks third in assists (9.1 apg). He has led the Rockets to NBA second-best record, falling short to Golden State Warriors. This year he became the first ever player to have a 60 point triple-double game. The previous NBA high for a triple-double was 57 points by both Michael Jordan in December 1992 and Russell Westbrook in March.

“James Harden right now is the clear-cut MVP,” Shaquille O’Neal said.

The Beards teammate Chris Paul had his own take on the MVP race. Paul declared, “it’s not even going to be close.”
