Congratulations are in order for Steph Curry after news was just leaked that he will be named the NBA MVP for the 2014-2015 season! The award should come as no surprise because the only real competitor down the stretch was the Rockets James Harden but it was already assumed Steph would win. The announcement is expected to be made before the Warriors play game two of their series against the Grizzlies.


Warriors guard Stephen Curry will be named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player, multiple league sources told CSNBayArea.com in recent days.

Official announcement will come this week, sources said, likely on Monday between Games 1 and 2 of the Western Conference semifinals series between the Warriors and the Memphis Grizzlies.

The timing of the announcement, one source said Sunday morning, remains flexible and could become between Games 2 and 3 of the Warriors-Grizzlies series.

Curry, who scored a game-high 22 points in a 101-86 Warriors victory over Memphis earlier today, will become the first Warrior in the franchise’s 53-year California history to win the league’s highest individual honor. The 27-year-old in February started the All-Star Game for the second consecutive season, this time leading all players in number of votes.

The sixth-year point guard averaged 23.8 points per game (sixth in the league), 7.7 assists (sixth) and 2.04 steals (fourth). He shot 44.3 percent from 3-point distance (fourth), 91.4 percent on free throws (first) and his 48.7 percent overall shooting percentage led all point guards.

The runner-up in the voting, according to sources, was Houston guard James Harden, who was considered the co-leader in the two-man race with Curry. My personal opinion is Harden should have won considering he had less to work with and still had his Rockets right in the thick of things, but nobody can be mad at this, except Harden!
