James Harden recently made headlines when he professed to being the best player in the league and that he deserved the MVP last year. He may not get many people to buy into that first comments, but he’s not far off with the second one.
Naturally, that means Steph Curry didn’t deserve it, according to Harden. Curry was asked about it and you have to wonder if there’s now some bad blood between these two.
“Different guys find different ways to motivate themselves,” Curry said. “I’m obviously confident in what I do, and I know he’s confident in what he does. It might come out in different ways. […] I try not to do a lot of talking, especially about things that have passed. But you’ve got to motivate yourself, and I’m sure he’s motivated for this year to do some special things. I’m the same way. That doesn’t change what happened last year.”
