The Beard is one of the favorites to win the MVP award this season as he has led his team to third place in the Western Conference with only eight games left on their schedule. He is currently second in scoring with 29.4 and leads the league in assists with 11.3 a game.
Despite this being his first real season at the point guard position, Harden has showed everyone that he is very comfortable playing in that spot and has ran the plays designed by head coach Mike D’Antoni really well throughout the entire season.
