The first annual Players Choice Awards kicked off last night, and Houston Rockets swingman James Harden was voted by his peers as the 2014-15 Most Valuable Player.
“I want to thank God, thank my mom, my family and friends for all the support, the continuous support,” Harden said. “I want to thank BET for this beautiful event. To the NBA Players Association, (executive director) Michele Roberts for giving players a voice to speak their minds, and then just the players, the peers, I appreciate this vote. It means a lot and I’m really thankful for it.”
Harden beat out finalist Stephen Curry, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook to win top honors.
