Another Stephen A. Smith hot take is fresh off the stove, this time regarding his pick for the 2018-19 NBA MVP. The debate among those around the league tends to be fixated on Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo and Houston Rockets guard James Harden.

It may not be the popular choice, but he does have a point. James Harden
Harden was the latest player to average more than 35 points in a season, something which hasn't been done since Michael Jordan in 1987.

Although Giannis may be the people's MVP, Harden's unbelievable production this season has definitely made it one of the closest races in years, and has given him the support of the always entertaining Stephen A Smith.
