Who's the NBA MVP: James Harden or LeBron James?
Don't call it a comeback. James Harden's been here for years. He's finally getting the recognition he deserves after being criminally overlooked the past few seasons because of Russell Westbrook's triple-doubles and LeBron James being LeBron James. Harden is the best player on the team with the best record in the NBA, leading the league in scoring and throwing in 8.8 assists per game. He is unguardable in Mike D'Antoni's pace-and-space offense, and being recognized as anything less than an MVP would be a travesty.
James has been in the league for 15 years, and he is still as dominant as ever. The Cleveland Cavaliers went through a major roster overhaul and a curiously up-and-down season, but he has guided the team through it all. The Cavs made it deep into the playoffs, and James is carrying the team on his back with his signature passing and overall brilliance. People might be bored of James because he's so good, but that doesn't mean he isn't the best player in the league. James is the MVP, and it's not even close.
