Stephen Curry wins second straight MVP Award
Update, May 10th, 12:15PM: Stephen Curry has been named the first unanimous MVP in NBA history. You can find the full voting here, but massive congratulations are due for Stephen smashing another big record!
Before CoachUp could even start the week at the office, Mark Stein of ESPN has tweeted out some very awesome news: Stephen Curry has won his second straight MVP Award! To many, this was seen as a forgone conclusion after leading the Golden State Warriors to an incredible 73-9 record and improving greatly on his historic MVP season in 2014-2015. Stephen upped his points per game average from 23.8 to 30.1 and even raised his FG% despite shooting even more than last year.
While CoachUp is waiting with baited breath for his return to the playoffs, winning this award deserves some massive praise. By winning the award again, Stephen joins LeBron James, Steve Nash, Tim Duncan, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, Moses Malone, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, and Bob Pettit as the only 2x recipients of the honor -- not a bad list to be part of, huh?
If you want to train like Stephen Curry, get started and find your coach now!
This season, Stephen became the first player to ever eclipse 300 three-pointers -- but, unsatisfied with that, dominated from behind the arc and finished with an insane 402 makes, a likely unbreakable record. Alongside Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Coach of the Year Steve Kerr, the Warriors have another legitimate shot at an NBA Championship. We're sure Stephen would love to be playing in Game 4 tonight against the Portland Trailblazers but settling for his second MVP will have to suffice for now.
From everybody at CoachUp -- congratulations, Stephen! You push us all to be better each and every day!
