Via the Chronicle‘s Jonathan Feigen:
“In my opinion, [Harden] is the MVP of the league,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. “It’s not even close, really, what he’s doing with his team and the numbers he’s putting up.” […]
“He’s been fantastic. He’s been unbelievable,” Gentry said of [Anthony] Davis. “I think the only difference in him not being heavily, heavily in the conversation is obvious we haven’t had the type of season that a Houston has had or a Toronto has had, you know with [DeMar] DeRozan and those guys.”
