  • Rockets James Harden Russell Westbrook

In 2019, however, Harden was far from a clear-cut choice.

With all due respect to Paul George, it became clear that the victor of the MVP Award was going to come down to a battle between James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo as the 2018-19 season came to an end.

"I think once the media, they create a narrative about somebody from the beginning of the year, I think they just take that narrative and run with it the entire year", Harden said in an interview Wednesday with Houston radio station KBXX 97.9 The Box. But all I can do is control what I can do, and I went out there and did what I was supposed to do at a high level. Only a few seasons anybody ever did that.

The "Physical Arrangement" stipulates that the repatriation will be completed preferably within two years from the start. Many said they want to go back under direct United Nations supervision, not under the Myanmar government.

"People were tuned in to how many points I was going to score the next game".

The 29-year-old superstar and 2018 Most Valuable Player adds that he's exclusively focused on being an even more potent force next season, and finally winning that elusive National Basketball Association championship. "It was a thing". But I can't control (the MVP voting). Harden's Rockets ultimately finished the regular season tied for the third-best record in the Western Conference. However, James doesn't think Giannis had a better year than him statistically, but believes politics played a role in his winning the MVP award.

With a revamped backcourt and a flurry of core players returning, Houston hopes to build on last season's 53-win campaign and contend for a championship. I do what I do on the court for us to win.
