Harden seems to have brushed off the elbow from World Peace (maybe his beard took the brunt of the blow) and has helped the Thunder get out to a 2-0 lead against the defending national champion Mavericks. He scored 19 in the opening game and 15 the other night. He’s a young, versatile player that should probably be this year’s sixth man of the year. He could also be hoisting the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. Yeah, that’s what it’s called.
