Instead, during a Monday visit to "The Dan Patrick Show," the New Orleans Pelicans big man cast his hypothetical MVP ballot for Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden. "You know, it's tough," Davis said. "There's a lot of guys playing out of their minds. James Harden, Russ[ell Westbrook], Steph[en Curry], you know, LeBron [James]. But ... [long pause] I mean, James Harden. It'd probably have to be James. He's out of his mind. He's definitely playing out of his mind. We talk about this with my team every day. Like, every day." Yahoo!

Former Warriors coach and current ESPN color commentator Mark Jackson believes Rockets guard James Harden, not Warriors guard Stephen Curry, should be the 2015 NBA MVP.

"I'm enjoying the whole process of these last (few) games, just trying to win games," he said. "That's what I've been doing since Dwight has been out. I don't really keep track of the other (MVP candidates) or what they're doing. Obviously everybody knows that Russ is going on a triple-double rally. He's playing extremely well and they're fighting for the eighth spot. But all those guys you named (Curry, Westbrook, James, Davis and Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers) are very good players, or very talented players. For me, I just focus on what I can control and going out there and doing the best I can do every single right." USA Today Sports
