PBT Extra: Stephen Curry is the MVP for a modern NBA


Stephen Curry is a different kind of MVP.

Usually, the award goes to the physical freaks — LeBron James, Kevin Durant, etc.. — but that is not Curry. Rather he is the perfect point guard for a modern NBA offense — he can space the floor with his shooting, he can play with the ball or off the ball, and he plays a high IQ game.

In the next few years the physical freaks will win more MVPs — we can throw the future ones Anthony Davis rounds up in that group — but Curry is something unique.
