Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry is one of the hottest and most talented basketball players in the world right now. He proved just how good he was this year and won his second straight MVP award.
Not only did Curry become the first person to win consecutive awards since LeBron James in 2012 and 2013, he became the first player to win the award unanimously in NBA history.
Here is a look at how the results for the award played out this year.

Think of all the greats that have won the award from Shaquille O’Neal to Michael Jordan to Larry Bird to Wilt Chamberlain. Not one of those players has gained every single first-place vote in the 60-year history of the MVP award.
Steph Curry averaged over 30 points a game this year and became the first to make 400 three-point shots in a single season. He also helped the Warriors break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls record for most wins in a NBA regular season.
Curry’s award comes just hours after he broke the single-game record for most points in an overtime period with 17 to beat the Portland Trailblazers and move to a 3-1 series lead Monday night. There is no doubting that he is truly one of the best players in the NBA today.
