Stephen Curry had 22 points and 7 assists in the 101-86 victory against the Grizzlies. Curry continues to grow and learn. He is the first MVP in the franchise since Wilt Chamberlain in 1960. Though his size continues to provoke harsh opinions and comments, Curry proves even the smallest of players can make a big difference!
While many thought Harden was going to take the MVP title this time around, it ended up going to Curry. Curry's win is very deserved and the Most Valuable Player title is a hard fought and hard won trophy for the player. There is no injustice in this award, as Curry proved to be the better player all around.
Worthy? All pros are worthy if you consider how much work, time, and effort they put in to get to the level at which they are performing. To discount whether a player is worth his or her salt on the court is mute. They are all worthy. The one who works hardest, usually wins.
Yes, I believe Stephen Curry is the most valuable player in the NBA. The fact that his Golden State Warriors defeated the James Harden-led Houston Rockets in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals is not even the main argument for his legitimacy. Curry has been the catalyst for the rise of Golden State with his amazing shooting, ball-handling, and ability to make dramatic shots.
