With the Rockets struggling to make the playoffs, James Harden has never been mentioned in the MVP conversation this season. Statistically, though, his performance is as good if not better than last year, where he finished second behind Stephen Curry in the MVP vote. Believe it or not, Harden is averaging career highs in points (28.8), rebounds (6.2) and assists (7.5) in 2015-16.

Not all is good, though. The Rockets All-Star guard is also averaging a career-high 4.6 turnovers per game, which is good for an all-time NBA record 370, beating Artis Gilmore‘s mark of 366 back in 1977-78, the first season the NBA recorded turnovers.

Pete Maravich remains the leader in turnovers per game with 5.0, also in the 1977-78 season.
