Kobe Bryant on MVP Race: ‘It’s Got To Be James’

James Harden is well on pace to win the 2018 NBA MVP award. This is one of those years where nobody else is really being endorsed, especially by the peers. While promoting his new ESPN show “Detail”, Kobe Bryant was asked to weigh in on the race and he said he doesn’t understand why this is even a question. Via USA Today:

“It’s got to be James,” Bryant said. “I really don’t understand the debate about picking somebody else. I don’t get it. Like, what the hell does this guy have to do? I mean for the last three years, the guy has been absolutely lights out, and now you still want to sit here and debate who should be MVP when he leads the league in scoring (30.4 points per game), his assists numbers (8.8 per) are off the charts, they have the best record in the league (65-16).

“If he doesn’t win MVP this year, what the hell is he supposed to do to win MVP, average 40 (points), 15 (assists) and 15 (rebounds)? I mean, come on now. Enough is enough.”
