Barring something unforeseen, James Harden is going to win his first MVP this year after finishing second two of the last three seasons. The question is: Will he win it unanimously?  

This should help, as James took time out of his busy schedule to wish a young boy a very happy birthday. Pretty cool of James to give the little fan a shout out. 

New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry leaves no doubt that his vote belongs to Houston Rockets superstar guard James Harden, according to an article written today by Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

“In my opinion, [James Harden] is the MVP of the league,” coach Gentry said. “It’s not even close, really, what he’s doing with his team and the numbers he’s putting up.”

I think it’s pretty clear cut, Harden is the MVP. He’s earned it, and we know he’s a huge favorite with the fans. Now he just needs a Chip and he’ll go down as one of the all time greats.
