When Stephen Curry got the news on Tuesday morning that he was the NBA’s first unanimous KIA MVP award winner in the league’s history, not to mention one of 11 players to have won the honor in back-to-back seasons, the Golden State Warriors star did what anyone faced with that kind of humbling reality would.
Picked his jaw up off the floor.
“I looked at the list of every single MVP award winner, and to know that I’m in that group, and to be part of that club …,” Curry, whose Warriors went a historic 73-9 during the regular season, told USA TODAY Sports by phone before pausing. “At the start of the year, you have goals that you want to accomplish and what not, but you don’t know how the story is going to end, standing on the stage with two MVP trophies is something I never would have imagined before. I’m definitely appreciative of the journey. …I still have a lot to accomplish, but the fact that that’s something that nobody else did before, that’s crazy.”
