The Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry made history today, accomplishing something that's eluded Michael, Larry, Magic, LeBron, Shaq and Kobe. Curry was named the MVP with 131 first-place votes, making him the first unanimous MVP winner in the award's 61-year history. The distinction comes after an incredible performance in last night's overtime win against the Portland Trail Blazers, Curry's first game back after a knee injury had him sidelined for two weeks. After a slow start, he would end up scoring 40 points on the evening, with 17 coming in the overtime period, a new NBA record. As for the pertinent seasonal stats, Curry led the league in scoring, averaging 30.1 points. He sank a total of 402 3-pointers, besting his own previous NBA record, while shooting 45.4 percent from beyond the arc. He would amass these astounding figures while leading his Warriors team to 73 regular-season wins, the most in league history. He's also the 11th player to win back-to-back MVP awards. If you had any doubt that Steph Curry is the best basketball player alive at the moment, this should help settle the debate.
Another first for the Warriors guard
