Report: Stephen Curry becomes first unanimous MVP in NBA history
Stephen Curry has officially been announced as the 2015-16 NBA Most Valuable Player. It’s the second consecutive season that he has won the award.
On top of that, Adrian Wojnarowski notes that Curry is the first unanimous MVP winner in the history of the NBA.
Yesterday, Marc Stein reported that Curry would be revealed as the league’s MVP later this week. Considering his incredible play, it wasn’t that big of a surprise to anybody, and it only took one more day for the NBA to officially make the announcement.

Curry led the Golden State Warriors to a NBA-record 73 wins with 30.1 points, 6.7 assists, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per game, as well as a 31.2 Player Efficiency rating.
Curry’s the 11th player with a 50-40-90 shooting line (going 50.4% from the field, 45.4% from 3-point land, and 90.8% from the charity stripe), and his 402 3-pointers shattered the league record, which he set the year before with 286.
