Heading into the second half of the season, Harden is leading the NBA in scoring while putting Houston on his back as they are becoming an huge team to look out for come playoff time. In addition, James has been gaining new fans game after game as he brings a new age of style points on the court, giving defenders hell with his unpredictable dribble penetration skills and unstoppable euro step finishes at the basket.
