Harden wins first career MVP award
    2018-06-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AFTER averaging 30.4 points, 8.8 assists and 5.4 rebounds in 2017-18 and leading the Rockets to the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and a 65-17 record, James Harden was named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) on Monday.

“Shout out to all the youngest, man, y’all got a dream, a vision out there, go chase that dream,” Harden said after winning his award. “I’ll see y’all next year.”

This is Harden’s second straight year to be in the top 3 of the voting for the MVP award. The 28-year-old finished second to Russell Westbrook last season. He finished ninth in 2015-16.

Following Harden in the voting was LeBron James in second, who averaged 27.5 points, 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds, and Anthony Davis in third who put up 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game.

Harden finished this season averaging 30.4 points per game, a career- and NBA-best. He is the first Rocket to lead the NBA in points per game in a season, and the second player in franchise history to average 30+ PPG in a season (Moses Malone – 31.1 in 1981/82).

Harden became the fifth individual player to average 30 or more points and eight or more assists per game over the course of a season, and the second player in the last two years to do so.
