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)
In addition: Curry made an NBA single-season record 286 threes, breaking his own record of 272 set during the 2012-13 season. To put this into retrospect, he made ~3x the number of threes that Steve Nash made during his first MVP season…

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.

Let’s review…

Good Job Good Effort, Nick Calathes!

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.
