Saturday night, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry was being Stephen Curry when he hit a last three-point shot to send his team past the Oklahoma City Thunder in overtime. It was one of the best back-and-forth games of the season and really had a playoff-like feel to it.
The shot came with less than a second on the clock and Curry knew it was going to splash down. After the shot, as expected, Twitter went crazy as many, including top NBA stars, lost their minds.
@StephenCurry30 needs to stop it man!! He's ridiculous man! Never before seen someone like him in the history of ball!

.@StephenCurry30 has a chance to be the greatest player we've ever seen, if he plays at this level for the next 4-5yrs!

Curry ended the game with 12 three-point shots, tying Kobe Bryant for the most in a game. He also broke his own record for most three pointers in a season, a record he set last season.
If there is any way you can say this man doesn’t deserve the MVP award again this year, please, I would love to hear it.
