Let’s be honest, Steph Curry was never NOT going to be the MVP. You can make a case for every single player in the Top 6, but, only one person can take home the hardware.
(Quick side note: Can we talk about the guy who voted Steph Curry FIFTH for a second? His name is Mike Crispino, and he is the radio play-by-play announcer for the New York Knicks — which actually explains everything, because he wouldn’t hasn’t seen good basketball since the 1970’s and wouldn’t know what it looks like even if it hit him in the face. #KNICKSTAPE)Anyways, before we get to the video celebration — we must recognize Steph’s unfathomable statistical achievements this season. He led the best regular-season team, the Golden State Warriors, to a franchise-record 67 wins. He averaged…
- 23.8 Points Per Game (6th in NBA)
- 7.7 Assists Per Game (6th in NBA)
- 2.04 Steals Per Game (4th in NBA, Career-High)
- 4.3 Rebounds Per Game.
- 44.3 Three-Point Percentage (4th in NBA)
- 91.4 Free Throw Percentage (1st in NBA)
Until yesterday, I had honestly forgotten about Steph. With the Warriors making such quick work of the New Orleans Pelicans (albeit difficult work), and the Spurs/Clippers series stealing the spotlight — it had been like a week since Curry had set our televisions on fire, and I really missed it.
Well, boy, did he show up for Game 1.

You again? Are you lost, Zach Randolph? DEUCES.
And finally, of Steph’s 15,000 Vine-able plays this season … NBA.com ranked the Top 10, and they’re spot on…
I’m not kidding when I say I could watch this YouTube video on repeat for the rest of my days, and be genuinely happy with the way my life turned out.
