The race for MVP in the NBA over the last few years has been a battle between four time winner Lebron James and the defending MVP Kevin Durant. Durant’s former teammate James Harden however has been making a name for himself with the Houston Rockets over the past three seasons. From the looks of it, Harden is officially on the brink of NBA superstardom. A ton of negative attention was was thrown his way last year ranging from criticism for his lack of intensity on the defensive end, to his shortcomings in the playoffs. Seems like he channeled all the negative talk and used it as fuel to push himself through grueling off season workouts.
This video shows the reason behind Harden’s all-around improvement is nothing other than hard work. It goes to show a lot about his character, he could of easily been contempt with staying at an All-Star level. Yet made a decision to put the required work in to take his game to new heights. Without a doubt James Harden has cemented himself as a legitimate MVP candidate. Western Conference teams definitely “Fear the Beard” and for good reason!
