Gobert averaged 13.5 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game - the latter of which was good enough for third in the league. Harden is the third player in Rockets history to win the award, and he is the first since Hakeem Olajuwon won in 1994. He was the NBA's scoring champion (30.4 points a game) to go along with 8.8 assists a game. "You know, I felt like last year I should have won as well, so I didn't see a difference between last year and this year." he said.
