Every time there is voting by writers, I feel that one or two would vote against common sense for their own attention. I thought that this would be the case for Stephen Curry and the MVP award.
But instead, all the writers did what was right and Curry is the first ever unanimous MVP in league history.
Curry was the obvious choice and him winning the award just shows that we are blessed to be witnessing such greatness.
Stephen Curry is going to win the NBA MVP award again according to reports. This was a very easy choice and everyone who had watched the NBA consistently this year knew that Curry was the best player in the league.
Curry exceeded in pretty much every category in his game this season, including his own three-point mark which he shattered. He led the Warriors to the best regular season in the league and has become the biggest global icon in the game right now.
He is currently recovering from an MCL injury but once he returns, he will get a chance to continue his quest for back-to-back titles.
But for now, the league will celebrate the great player that he is. No other player in the league was this impressive and this good all season long. Congratulations, Steph!
Stephen Curry is a sponsor for Brita. I didn’t know that until I saw this tweet from a colleague of mine. That’s good for Curry as he’s getting his fame and exposure out there.
But from these screenshots, I noticed one thing that stood out to me. Look at the jersey he’s wearing. And now look at this old template design from Nike. It looks very similar.
Last night many media outlets picked up on a quote by Mark Jackson during his broadcast covering the Warriors. For the most part, the quote was a little shocking, claiming that Stephen Curry is “hurting the game” of basketball.
He claims in his tweet that the media is getting the quotes wrong. (And if you listen to him during the broadcast, he really sounded like a salty man who is still bitter over the Warriors letting him go.)
But all I have read on his quote covered the entire statement he made. The media did no misquote him. He just doesn’t realize that he is wrong.
Here is a Vine from Stephen Curry’s performance during the Warriors’ win last night, putting their record to 20-0.
Look at all the elements on display.
- Andrew Bogut doesn’t even box out but instead jogs back on to defense immediately after the pass, knowing that Curry will make the shot.
- Look at the dejection in Kemba Walker’s slumped shoulders when he sees Curry wide open.
- Stephen Curry has so much time, that he checks his footing to make sure he’s shooting a three-pointer.
- Hornets coach Steve Clifford is just disgusted with what just transpired.
- All five Hornets are in the paint hoping for a rebound. Frank Kaminsky is looking for someone to box out but his man is already going back on defense.
- Klay Thompson watches and nods, knowing the Warriors just made the Hornets pay with the extra possession.
The Warriors are dominating. They are demoralizing the opposition. They are 20-0. That’s their season in a six-second video.
The Sharks are in rebuilding mode. The excitement for this team and their run of success isn’t as high.
The Warriors on the other hand are on top of the world as champions.
So with the Bay Area love, we have the following promotion. It had to happen. The Sharks need the buzz. The Warriors right now can do no wrong. This move is no surprise. This promotion is exactly what we might be seeing more of with the Warriors and their Bay Area sports neighbors.
I want this bobblehead. It will probably cost a pretty penny on eBay.
Then who else have you seen do what Curry does?
Stephen Curry got a triple-double in his rookie year and from that day, I knew that the kid was special. I didn’t know how it would have worked out with him and Monta Ellis. But when the team moved Ellis and put faith in Curry despite his ankle issue, I was just hopeful he could stay healthy.
What we got was this young kid growing into a living legend on the court. Simply amazing! Now the dream continues and I hope to see the NBA title come back to the Bay.
After watching last night’s NBA All-Star weekend festivities, there were two thoughts that came to my mind. My first thought was the three-point contest. The star power and the hype was met in my opinion. We got to see a great first round and a great battle between teammates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Former champion Kyrie Irving also put on a great show and the three made it to the final round.
What you see above is Curry’s final round. He made an impressive 13 shots in a row to help seal his victory. We have lauded Curry as the best shooter in the NBA and it seemed for a while that it was in-game only. But now he has finally won this contest and we are so blessed to have seen such a great talent win the contest that seemingly was designed for him.
We have a lot of great shooters in the league. This contest was a great platform to show off their skills.
