For the first time in NBA history a player has been unanimously voted MVP. Every one of the 131 voters placed Charlotte native Stephen Curry first on their five-player ballots.
This was also Stephen’s second consecutive year achieving the NBA’s highest honor as the leagues most valuable player.
He is a true inspiration on and off the court, excelling in his sport, maintaining a strong family life, and living out his faith in a consistent manner. He also makes time to return to his alma maters Davidson and Charlotte Christian to impart wisdom and share hope with the students;
Only two other athletes in any sport have achieved this – Tom Brady in football and Wayne Gretzky in hockey – received unanimous support for their sports’ highest individual award.
At 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds, Curry will never be as physically imposing as Michael Jordan or LeBron James, but he may just become the most consistent and accurate shooter of all time.
