WASHINGTON - The players voted for James Harden as the NBA Players' Choice MVP on the first annual NBA Player's Association "Players' Awards".
"I want to thank God, thank my mom, my family and friends for all the support, the continuous support," Harden said. "I appreciate this vote. It means a lot and I'm really thankful for it."
