Last week runner up for the 2014-15 MVP trophy James Harden stated that he should have been the one that lifted the trophy, not Steph Curry.

There is no doubt that these two will once again be contenders for the MVP trophy as they try to steer their respective teams towards an NBA title.
But Curry it seems prefers to do his talking on the court: "I try not to do a lot of talking, especially (regarding) things that have passed. Obviously, you’ve got to motivate yourself and I’m sure he’s motivated this year to do some special things. I’m the same way.”
The MVP race seems to have started before the season has even begun with both Steph Curry and James Harden, as well as Sacramento Kings centre DeMarcus Cousins, stating a claim for the title. As well as this there is the long list of players that are always sniffing around the biggest individual award in the NBA.
Whatever happens it will be interesting to see the drama unfold this season.
