James Harden had nothing but good words to say about fellow NBA superstar and Brooklyn Nets teammate Kevin Durant.

In an interview with Malika Andrews of ESPN, Harden called Durant the NBA MVP for the 2021/22 season.

“He’s overly polished. Natural talent who knows the spots he wants to get to, and he’s going to get there. It’s not on the defender, it’s on him, whether he makes the shot or misses the shot,” Harden told Andews, via Bleacher Report.

Kevin Durant has been one of the best players in the league this season, averaging 29.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. For its part, Brooklyn is on top of the Eastern Conference, tied with the Chicago Bulls, at 23-10.
