Stephen Curry Becomes the First Unanimous MVP in NBA History

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has broken a lot of records in his short time in the league, but he just accomplished something nobody has ever been able to do.

We all knew Curry would get the Most Valuable Player award (excuse me, the Kia NBA Most Valuable Player award) for the second year in a row, but the question was would he become the first ever unanimous MVP?

On Tuesday, Curry made history.

While this is a big accomplishment for Steph, it’s a YUGE accomplishment for the sports writers of America (and Canada), who have trouble agreeing upon anything. There are always one or two smug writers that want to make a statement, casting their first place vote for Kawhi Leonard, James Harden or someone else.

Curry received all 130 first place votes, something Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James were never able to do, as both players fell just one vote short in the past.


So does that mean Curry had the greatest single season of all time? It’s hard to argue against his 30.1 points per game and 402 three-pointers. What’s more, Curry finished fourth in the Most Improved Player voting, so he’s only getting better.

Be prepared for a few more Curry MVPs in the future.
