Speaking with ESPN, Kobe Bryant argued that this year’s MVP race could come down to a tie, resulting in the first ever co-MVPs between Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Houston Rockets guard James Harden. Kobe said, “It’s hard to come up with a rational decision as to who should be MVP so you might see our first co-MVPs this year.” On his show Musecage, ‘Little Mamba’ the muppet agreed with the ex-Lakers shooting guard as they went inside the crystal ball of Canvas City to breakdown how both Russ and The Beard create shots for themselves, read the defense, create shots while dishing to teammates and play with extremely high basketball IQ.

Little Mamba and Black Mamba could both be onto something: as of today, Westbrook is still averaging a triple-double for the season at 31.3 points per game, 10.5 rebounds per game and 10.4 assists per game, while Harden is right behind him with 29.4 ppg, 8.0 rpg and 11.3 apg. The race for what could end up being MVP history will only heat up as Houston has already clinched a playoff birth and OKC should soon as well. And in case you were wondering, last year’s MVP Steph Curry and NBA execs think Harden is gonna take home the Maurice Podoloff Trophy.

Rewatch the first installment of Kobe’s video series with ESPN, where he breaks down how to guard the greats.
