Doug Gottlieb in for Colin:
James Harden’s MVP shows the irrelevance of the regular season
The NBA Awards show was last night, and James Harden walked away with the NBA MVP trophy in recognition of his incredible regular season, but Doug thinks waiting until after the playoffs to hand out regular season awards is a dumb concept.
It’s not Harden’s fault that he won the award, but after watching LeBron’s legendary postseason and Harden’s flame out performance in the Western Conference Finals, it’s hard to make serious argument he’s the best player in the league. The NBA regular season is meaningless and Harden;s MVP proves it.
