Report: Stephen Curry to win second consecutive MVP

Stephen Curry Is Doubtful He Will Return For Game 4

Stephen Curry's record-breaking season was good enough to see him win the NBA's Most Valuable Player award for the second year in a row. While the official announcement will be made later this week, ESPN's Marc Stein was the first to make it public:

This makes Curry the first back-to-back MVP winner since LeBron James won it in both of his championship seasons with the Miami Heat. Curry averaged 30 points per game, the same number he wears on the back of his jersey, and carried his team to a record-breaking 73 wins in the regular season.

Really, there was nobody else you could've chosen for the award. According to Basketball Reference, Curry led the league in multiple categories this season including 3-pointers, points per game, player efficiency rating, and win shares. His 402 3-pointers made in a season broke his previous record of 286 that he set last season. Having now occupied three of the top four slots for most 3-pointers in a season, it wouldn't be crazy to already proclaim him the best shooter of all-time.

Having only played in two playoff games for his team so far, the Warriors are showing how deep they are by picking up the pace without Curry, but without him, they aren't going to beat the San Antonio Spurs or win the Championship. They lost a lot of games this season when Curry didn't play or when he had a bad shooting performance, and despite their offensive depth, he still dictates their game most of the time.

It's hard to imagine he won't pick up where he left off when he comes back in the playoffs, so expect the path to the title to run through Golden State.
