The Most Valuable Players in the NBA Right Now

Team: Houston Rockets
Stats: 26.1 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 5.7 APG, 1.9 SPG
Salary: $5,820,417

The beard has gone to Houston and has made the Rockets a playoff team. He's no longer the gunner off the bench, instead he's the leader of a young Rockets squad with a chance at a bright future given the Houston front office's track record. Once he was traded, OKC was no longer the favorites to come out of the West. The current Thunder roster might've changed that way of thinking, but one thing is for sure; they traded away a star. Harden plays like an old vet. He seldom makes dumb plays, can handle the rock, plays defense, and gets into the lane at will. Just look at that stat line and try not to say: Damn!
