James Harden and Russell Westbrook are both enjoying remarkable seasons, making NBA MVP voting a popular topic for debate as the playoffs approach.
Harden has transformed the Houston Rockets from an aimless team a year ago into a legitimate threat to win the Western Conference. Westbrook, meanwhile, has been a triple-double machine that is the sole reason for the Oklahoma City Thunder being in the playoff picture.
On Friday, Fred Roggin and Rodney Peete debated each player's MVP merits.
"If you remove Russell Westbrook from Oklahoma City, they are finished. I mean they are completely finished. They have no shot." -- Fred Roggin
Rodney Peete: "If you take James Harden out of Houston, they have no shot to win a title. They're in the running, honestly. They can play with San Antonio, and they can play with Golden State [because of Harden]. Without him, they are just another ok team."
