Steph Curry is the First Ever Unanimous NBA MVP
On Tuesday, Steph Curry won his second consecutive NBA MVP award, and this time he did it in unanimous fashion, becoming the first player in league history to earn all 131 first-place votes.
Of those 131 votes, 130 belong to various sportswriters and broadcasters, while the other vote belongs to the Kia MVP Fan Vote.
The Golden State Warriors’ point guard averaged 30.1 points, 6.7 assists, and 5.4 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per game while leading his team to an NBA-record 73 wins during the 2015-16 regular season.
Finishing in second in the MVP race was the Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard, followed by LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, and Chris Paul. Curry is just the 11th player in NBA history to win back-to-back MVP awards. Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain and Larry Bird are the only players to have won the award in three consecutive season. Can Curry be the fourth? He’ll have to wait another 365 days to find out.
