Nets' James Harden: I Am The MVP

There's confident and then there's James Harden of the Brooklyn Nets who doesn't even think there needs to be a vote this season, the NBA can hand him over the MVP trophy.

The Nets superstar was recently asked about the MVP conversation and Harden was as candid as ever and we loved it:

I feel like I am the MVP. I mean, it's just that simple. I don't want to speak individually on myself ... but I just try to go out there every single night and give my teammates everything I can bring to the game.

Harden has been everything as advertised for the Nets and has been the only star staying in the lineup on a consistent basis. The team now sits with a 31-15 record on the season and has won 17 of their last 20 games led by Harden who is averaging 25.4 points, 11.5 assists and 8.7 rebounds per game. 

Men lie, women lie, numbers don't.
