The Case for Stephen Curry to be MVP

curryIn his fifth season in the NBA, Stephen Curry of the Golden St. Warriors has become one of the most well-rounded players in the league. Everyone has always known he was a great shooter dating back to his Davidson College days. Curry’s ball handling has improved immensely and he is routinely setting up teammates for easy baskets.

The Warriors sit atop the Pacific Division with a 51-13 record and are currently the number one seed in the Western Conference with a five-game lead over the second-seeded Memphis Grizzlies. Curry is a big reason why the Warriors are tied with the Atlanta Hawks for the best record in the league.

Curry is averaging 23.6 points per game while dishing out 7.8 assists. He is virtually a lock at the foul line shooting over 90%. The baby-faced assassin has improved defensively this season averaging a career-high 2.1 steals per game while helping the Warriors lead the league in defensive efficiency.

What I like about Curry’s game this season is he is making his teammates better because of the attention he draws defensively every time down the court. Teams need to pick their poison. If teams play tight on Curry, he can dish the ball to teammates such as fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, or Draymond Green. Give Curry an inch and he will take a mile by shooting off the dribble or crossing over an opponent en route to driving to the hole.

I am  a firm believer that the best team in the league has a player worthy of earning the MVP Award. Curry is the best player on the best team in the league. Besides, no other player has a commercial where they are compared to the great William Shakespeare. He is the league’s most unguardable player and watching his game is like poetry in motion.

And that’s…as I see it!
