Sports analyst Skip Bayless thinks that the Brooklyn Nets star James Harden deserves to be named the MVP this season for how he impacts the game. He pointed at the Nets’ record without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving with Harden taking reigns of the team.

“For perimeter offensive players, Harden is the greatest I’ve ever seen,” Bayless said on UNDISPUTED. “I am mesmerized watching this man control basketball games for the Nets. Without KD, he’s 16-5. 6 games with no Kyrie, he’s 5-2. That’s why I say MVP.”

This season, the 31-year-old guard is averaging 25.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 11.2 assists per game as Brooklyn occupies the third place in the Eastern Conference.
