ESPN published their 2014-15 NBA predictions for the Most Valuable Player award on October 27th. 28 ESPN “experts” gave their pick and most of them went with LeBron James. The King received 26 out of 28 votes and both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin each got a vote.
Stephen Curry was not even in the conversation, but after leading his team to 67 wins and averaging 23.8 points, 7.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game, Curry is now the first Warrior to bring the MVP award to the Bay Area.
It’s been an emotional 48 hours for Curry and this fan base. This type of success is new to the Warriors, but the best is yet to come. For now, let’s appreciate what Curry has been able to accomplish. He is the perfect example of hard work and perseverance. As Curry has mentioned in his acceptance speech, winning this award was a small feat and he hopes to inspire others to follow in his foot steps.
Adam Mayo brings us another excellent video where he brings it all together. From his days at Davidson to this season’s best highlights, Mayo tells the story of the journey Curry has been through and where he has arrived.
