Warriors Point Guard Stephen Curry Voted NBA MVP For 2014-15
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry won the NBA’s MVP award Monday, beating out Houston’s James Harden in a race that turned out to be not that close. Curry received 100 of 130 first-place votes for a total of 1,198 points from a panel of 129 writers and broadcasters, along with the fan vote on the NBA’s website. Curry averaged 23.8 points, 7.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds and two steals this season. He shot 48.7 percent from the floor and 44.3 percent from 3-point range. He already owns three of the five most prolific 3-point shooting seasons in NBA history. Curry received more All-Star votes than any player and joined James and NBA commissioner Adam Silver at the league’s biggest marketing events during All-Star Weekend in New York, where his face was plastered on posters in subway stations and televisions in taxi cabs. He also delivered by winning his first 3-point contest.
