Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has become the first player in NBA history to be voted the NBA MVP unanimously, sweeping all 131 first placed votes.
This is the second straight season Curry has been named the NBA’s MVP, and it coincides with his return to the Golden State Warriors lineup after injury kept him on the sidelines since the teams round one series win over the Houston Rockets.
Curry has had a remarkable season. He led the Warriors to a record setting start to the season as they rolled their way to a 24-0 start, and also helped the team claim the all time record for wins in a series with a 73-9 record.
Curry averaged 30.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 2.1 steals per game. His state line of .504% field goal average, .454% from 3 point range, and 908% from the free throw line are absolutely ridiculous…but the amazing numbers don’t end there!
Curry became the first player in NBA history to hit 300 3 point shots in a season, and incredibly also went on to break the 400 3 point barrier as well, hitting a total of 402 this season!
The 2016 NBA season has simply been stunning by Curry. He has taken his game to an even higher level than he played at in winning his first NBA MVP award in 2015. At 28 years of age, and with a game that is well suited to longevity, it makes you wonder what type of statistics Curry will set throughout the rest of his career and how many more accolades he will receive as a result.
