The Golden State Warriors star has been named the 2014-2015 NBA’s Most Valuable Player.
The 6th year player and former Davidson star lead the Warriors to one of the best regular seasons of all time at 67-15. Arguably the best shooter in the NBA, Curry averaged 23.8 points, 7.7 assists, and 2 steals per game. He also led the league in FT% (91.4 %), total steals (163) and 3-pointers made (286).
Curry, beat out Houston Rocket’s guard James Harden who lead the Rockets to a 56-26 record despite Center Dwight Howard missing 41 games. Curry’s all around performance for the best team in the NBA gave him the nod over the Rocket’s superstar.
Cleveland forward LeBron James, Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook, and New Orleans forward Anthony Davis also received consideration for the MVP. Curry received 100 first place votes, 26 Second place votes, 3 third place votes, and 1 5th place vote.
