Stephen Curry To Be Named MVP For Second Straight Season

Congratulations to Stephen Curry!

The Golden State Warriors baller will be named as the NBA’s Most Valuable Player for a second straight season, according to league sources.

Here’s the scoop via ESPN:

Curry is bidding to become the first unanimously chosen MVP in NBA history; Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James fell one vote shy of unanimous selection in 2000 and 2013, respectively.

Curry has given himself a chance at sweeping the balloting thanks to a season as statistically dominant as any guard has ever assembled.

He’s the first player in league history at any position to average 30 ‎points per game in less than 35 minutes per game over the course of a full season.

Curry also shattered his single-season NBA record for made 3-pointers with 402 — his ‎previous record was 286 last season — while joining Steve Nash and his coach, Steve Kerr, as the only players in league history to shoot at least 50 percent from the floor, 45 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the line in a single season.

The 28-year-old will be the 11th player to win back-to-back MVP awards in the NBA’s 70-season existence. James was the last to achieve that feat with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013.
