Stephen Curry shockingly gets early MVP vote after hot start with Warriors

Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry’s hot start with the Golden State Warriors has already got his name being thrown in MVP discussions.

In the Warriors‘ first four games this season, Stephen Curry enchanted the fans with a series of spectacular performances. This has got ESPN’s Tim Legler raving and already starting MVP debates with Curry solely on his current list.

“Steph Curry’s gonna be MVP,” Legler said on the “Keyshaw, JWill & Max” show via NBC Sports. “Just write it down right now, Steph Curry’s gonna be MVP of the league.”

“He’s gonna average around 30, they’re gonna be in the top four in the Western Conference — that spells MVP to me with this roster,” he added.

As wild as it may sound, but Legler may have a point. After Curry’s stunning performance in the Warriors’ chilling 106-98 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, he officially became the only Dubs player to total at least 100 points, 25 rebounds and 25 assists through the team’s first four games of a season. Interestingly, the three-time NBA champ copped the same exact feat in the 2014-15 season where he went on to win his first MVP award.

Last season, Curry averaged a whopping 32 points, 5.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game and finished third in MVP voting. This year, he’s looking set for making another MVP run, having averaging  29 points, 8.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game to date.

Though this has been going on for years, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr admitted that he’s “still blown away” by Curry’s impeccable form.

“Even though we’ve all been here watching it, I’m still blown away,” Kerr said after Warriors’ win over the Clippers earlier in the season via Sporting News. “Not just the shooting range, but the competitiveness and the guts and just an amazing, amazing player.”

“Steph Curry was just Steph Curry,” he concluded. “There’s never been anyone like him. Those last two threes were ridiculous.”
