Stephen Curry Named NBA MVP

This year’s NBA MVP race was one of the best in recent memory, and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has won the award:

Curry was a top MVP candidate all season, leading the Warriors to a league-best record of 67-15. James Harden became Curry’s biggest challenger over the course of the season for leading an often short-handed Houston Rockets team to the second seed in the Western Conference.

Russell Westbrook, Anthony Davis, Chris Paul and LeBron James were all in the MVP mix as well thanks to their outstanding campaigns. But in the end, it’s Curry who takes home the award. It was officially announced on Monday, and here’s the full voting breakdown:

Curry averaged 23.8 points, 7.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds while shooting 48.7 percent overall and 44.3 percent from three. His numbers would have looked even better if he played more minutes, but he only played 32.7 minutes per game because Golden State often had games wrapped up by the fourth quarter.

Curry led the league in plus/minus and was at or near the top of the league in several key advanced stats. In a field of great candidates, Curry’s victory is well deserved, and now he’s well on his way toward leading the Warriors to a championship.
