There’s only one word to describe Stephen Curry — golden. On May 10th, the Golden State Warriors star guard was named the first NBA player ever to win the MVP award unanimously! This is his his second year in the row winning the honor.
What could be better than Stephen Curry, 27, leading his Golden State Warriors to the best NBA season in history? How about another MVP trophy to go along with it? For the first time ever, the NBA unanimously named the Dubs sharpshooter as the Most Valuable Player, beating out rival superstars like LeBron James, 31, LaMarcus Aldridge, 30, and teammate Klay Thompson, 26.
The League bestowed the honor on Steph on May 10, 2016. After Steph’s incredible season, was there any doubt that he wasn’t going to be the MVP? After all, the man made 400 3-pointers in the season, many of which were from insane distances. In fact, Steph’s so good, he makes nailing a 70-foot, half-court shot look like it was easy! No wonder the Warriors surpassed the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for the best record in NBA History.
Even when Steph’s not at 100%, nobody can touch this superstar. During the NBA playoffs, Steph injured his knee during a clash with nemesis with James Harden, 26, and the Houston Rockets. He finally made his return to the court against the Portland Trail Blazers and though he wasn’t completely healed, Steph nailed 40 points, including a record-breaking 17-points in overtime!
Steph’s season has been full of such jaw-dropping, “OMG-did-you-see-that?” moments. Remember his heart-pounding, game-winning shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder at the last minute? It was almost as sweet as LeBron’s face when Steph embarrassed him in a rematch of the 2014 NBA Finals. Amazing — and hilarious! Even LeBron thought so!
While Steph is the MVP of the NBA, even he and wife Ayesha Curry, 27, know who is the real star of the Curry household: daughter Riley! The 3-year-old stole the spotlight from her daddy during the 2015 NBA Playoffs and she still continues to win hearts while her daddy wins games. Hopefully, Riley and baby sister Ryan will make appearances during the Finals again if Steph and the Warriors make it again.
Are you glad that Steph is the NBA MVP, HollywoodLifers?
