Stephen Curry to be Named the 2014-2015 NBA MVP

It’s all over folks

Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry, aka Chef Curry, aka DID YOU JUST SEE THAT?, will be named the NBA’s 2014-2015 Most Valuable Player tomorrow, according to Bay Area CSN and reputable sources at Yahoo! Sports.

Curry, the Davidson University sharpshooter drafted by the Golden State Warriors with the 7th pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, has had a sensational season that’s as impressive by the numbers as it is by the ridiculous YouTube and Vine highlights. Curry averaged 24 points, 8 assists and 4 rebounds a game while shooting 44% from behind the arc and stealing the ball a career-best 2 times per contest. If the numbers on paper aren’t enough, consider the fact that he led his Warriors to a league-best record of 67-15, just 5 games shy of Michael Jordan‘s ’95/’96, 72-10 Chicago Bulls, who finished the season in 1996 with the best regular season record in NBA history.

Under Curry’s watchful and dominant eye, the Warriors–along with new head coach Steve Kerr–went from a flashy team with a high ceiling to arguably the best 2-way team in basketball. Curry made his teammates better, helping along the offensive games of Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson, who experienced such success at the shooting guard position he was named an All-Star for the first time in his career.

That being said, this was undoubtedly one of the tougher MVP races to judge in recent years. James Harden has enjoyed one of the best seasons in NBA history by a 2-guard, and he launched his Rockets to the #2 seed in the West despite significant starters missing extended time due to injury. On the back end of the ballot sat a constantly record-breaking Russell Westbrook (whose case was not helped by the Thunder missing the playoffs), another stellar year from LeBron James and the first of many oh-my-gosh years from Anthony Davis.
