Rockets’ James Harden wins 2018 Most Valuable Player
The second-ever NBA Awards bring forward some of the best players, coaches, and plays, recognizing the best of the best throughout a long 82-game NBA season. TNT televised this awards ceremony in conjunction with the NBA, giving the players the opportunity to celebrate these accomplishments in front of their peers.
MOST VALAUABLE PLAYER:
WINNER: James Harden
A third time around proves the charm for The Beard, who lost the race first against Stephen Curry during the 2014-15 season and then to Russell Westbrook in 2016-17, having capped a historic triple-double season for the first time in 55 years.
Harden is now triumphant, having posted a league-leading 30.4 points per game, along with 5.4 rebounds, 8.8 assists, and 1.8 steals after leading his team to an NBA-best 65-win season.
