Houston Rockets Rumors
James Harden — a year removed from a career-altering season where he was selected as the players’ choice MVP, finished second in NBA MVP voting and led the Houston Rockets to the Western Conference finals as one of the deadliest offensive weapons in the league — is on the outside looking in. From the voting results of a panel of 129 sportswriters and broadcasters across North America, Harden wasn’t on a single First Team ballot and received just 106 of a potential 645 points. Last year, his second career All-NBA First Team selection, he earned 125 First Team votes and 637 total points.
