Warriors' Steph Curry named first unanimous MVP in NBA history
Tuesday May 10th, 2016

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry accepted his MVP award on Tuesday. 

Curry accepted the award after speeches from Warriors general manager Bob Myers and his coach Steve Kerr. The Warriors guard is the first player to be unanimously voted MVP, and has now won the award in back-to-back seasons.

During his speech, Kerr recounted meeting Curry’s parents when the guard was a sophomore at Davidson, with Curry’s mom asking Kerr in 2007 if he thought Stephen would make it in the NBA. 

“I don’t know how we’re here nine years later,” Kerr said.

After Kerr, Curry spoke about receiving the award.


“This is an unbelievable honor,” Curry said. “To be the first unanimous MVP award winner is something I don’t even know how to put into words. Guys have been thanking me all day and I don’t really know what to say.”

In his career, Curry has averaged 22.4 points, 6.9 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.
