By now you already know Steph Curry was awarded with his second consecutive NBA MVP award earlier this week. The award came as no surprise since he pretty much locked it up a couple months into the season and even players like Lebron thought it was a no-brainer that the award should go to Steph. Bron praised the numbers Curry put up but he also threw somewhat of a subtle jab in regards to there being a difference between MVP and the best player.


“Look at Steph’s numbers,” James said on Wednesday. ”He averaged 30, he led the league in steals, he was 90-50-40 (shooting percentages from the free-throw line, field, and 3-pointers), and they won 73 (games). So, I don’t, do you have any debate over that, really, when it comes to that award? But when you talk about most ‘valuable’ then you can have a different conversation, so, take nothing away from him, he’s definitely deserving of that award, for sure.”

Definitely sounds like a shot but in his defense, Lebron is one of the only players who could say something like that because there are plenty of fans who still consider him the best overall player. When Steph was asked about the King’s comment, he chose to brush it off and not play much into it.

“I’ve gotten really good at ignoring people,” Curry said. “That’s been the theme for the last two years.”

Fans are going to be chomping at the bit for a Finals rematch from last year but the Oklahoma City Thunder hope to have something to say about that.
