Could this mean a Jimmy Butler contract outside the Chicago Bulls soon?
The emergence of James Harden as one of the most highly sought after in the league this season has made him a legitimate MVP candidate against LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Kawhi Leonard and Russell Westbrook.

The Miami Heat are slowly rebuilding and moving forward with Hassan Whiteside and Goran Dragic taking on the leadership roles in the team.

The Oklahoma City Thunder finally bounced back from their disastrous games against the Houston Rockets with Russell Westbrook getting outdueled twice by co-MVP candidate James Harden.
