Stephen Curry Wins 2015 NBA MVP Award In Convinging Fashion



The Golden State Warriors burst on the scene in the NBA during the 2014-15 NBA regular season with Stephen Curry emerging as a legitimate superstar. The Warriors had taken the Los Angeles Clippers to seven games in the first round of the playoffs last year proving they were a team on the rise, but this season they far exceeded all expectations and as a result became arguably the best team in the league.

With the Warriors winning a league-best 67 games this season, Golden State headed into the postseason as the team to beat. Curry has been the main reason for the team’s success as Golden State came only five more wins shy of tying Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls (72-10) for the best record in league history.

According to ESPN, Curry has been named this season NBA MVP for his efforts:

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry won the NBA’s MVP award Monday, beating out Houston’s James Harden in a race that turned out to be not that close.

In 80 games for the Warriors during the regular season, Curry averaged 23.8 points, 7.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game. Curry continued to shoot the lights out from beyond the arc with a shooting percentage of 44.3 while going 48.7 percent from the floor.

Before Curry was officially named this season’s Most Valuable Player, James Harden of the Houston Rockets was getting a lot of buzz as a legitimate candidate to win the award. Curry and Harden came down to the wire, but the Warriors superstar ended up on top with a 100 first-place votes to Harden’s 25. Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James also received five first-place votes.
