Don't call it a comeback. James Harden's been here for years. Criminally overlooked the past few seasons because of Russell Westbrooks triple-doubles and LeBron James being LeBron James, Harden is finally getting the recognition he deserves. He is the leader of the best team in the NBA, leading the league in scoring and throwing in 8.7 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 shocking.

James has been in the league for 15 years, and he is still as athletically dominant as ever. The Cleveland Cavaliers have gone through roster turnover and a curiously up-and-down season, but he has guided the team through it all. The Cavs are in 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.
