The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook and the Houston Rockets’ James Harden have been locked in a battle for MVP honors throughout the course of the 2016-17 NBA season.  Some people have Westbrook out in front because of his record-breaking 42 triple-doubles, while others believe the Rockets’ 55 wins (compared to the Thunder’s 47) give Harden the edge.

As for the Houston Rockets’ in-game operations crew, they seem to believe that Westbrook can’t even hold a candle to Harden.  Rather, they see Harden’s teammate, Patrick Beverley, as the better comparable to Westbrook.

Check out the graphic they posted on the jumbotron during Game 1 between the Rockets and Thunder at the Toyota Center last night:


And to make matters worse for Westbrook and company, they’d go on to lose Game 1 to the Rockets, 118-87.
