James Harden on last season and not winning MVP.
“I think once the media creates a narrative about somebody from the beginning of the year, I think they just take that narrative and run with it the entire year.”

“I had a [season] for the books, but it’s out of my control. Once the media creates that narrative about one person for the beginning of the year, I think they just run with that narrative until the end of the year. I don’t want to get into details but all I can do is control what I can do and I did what I was supposed to do at a high level. Only a few seasons anybody ever did that. I can’t control that, all I can control is coming back next year and winning a chip.”
The MVP award is subjective, so of course the ‘media narrative’ is always a factor.
Until you can quantify what makes someone worthy of an award, this will always be the case.
