Monday it became official: Stephen Curry is the NBA’s Most Valuable Player.
He accepted the award at a ceremony at the Warriors’ facility Monday. Above are the highlights; I’m not sure we have the bandwidth to show everyone he thanked. It was a genuine, touching speech talking about his father, former NBA sharpshooter Dell Curry, as well as his family. He also talked about the obstacles he had to overcome to get to that podium.
Curry’s story is one of player development, of determination, of putting in the effort, and then coming into an NBA and a team that bet on him (remember the early ankle injuries?) and knew how to best take advantage of those skills.
