Stephen Curry MVP award the top three reasons it is well deserved!
During the course of the regular season, two names were always in the running for the MVP award. One of them was Stephen Curry, the other being Houston Rockets dynamic guard James Harden. In the end, the Warriors guard won it, and here the reasons why Stephen Curry’s MVP award is well deserved.
Best player on the best team argument
The Golden State Warriorss were the best team during the regular season, winning franchise best 67 games. And it is not just the number of games they won, but how they did it. The Warriors were first in defensive rating, allowing just 98.2 points per 100 possessions and second in offensive rating at 109.7. Only the Los Angeles Clippers were the better offensive team during the course of the regular season, but the Warriors scored a net differential of 11.4. The Warriors were the only team with a double digit net differential in the regular season. Stephen Curry is arguably the best player on the team, as he makes everything happen. His 3-pt shooting draws the defense, but he can also drive, and he always finds the open man. His numbers might be down from a season ago, but his efficiency is up, and he was very close to the 40-50-90 club, shooting 44% from the 3-pt line, 48.7% overall and 91.4% from the free throw line.
A Record Year
Usually, the MVP winner breaks some kind of a record. And in the case of Stephen Curry MVP season, the record is the one he set two years ago. In the 2012-2013 season, Curry set a record for most 3-pt shots made with 272. This year, he broke the record on April 9, five days before the regular season ended. He finished the season with 286 made 3-pt shots. He attempted 646 3s, the most out of any other player in the league. And Curry was efficient, shooting 44.3% from behind the arc.
For a player to be considered an MVP, he must show his value on both ends of the floor. Stephen Curry MVP season marks a big step towards that direction for the lanky point guard. Not primary known for his defense, Curry has made huge strides on that end of the floor in the past season. His defensive win shares are the best factor that shows Curry’s value. He has contributed 4.1 wins for the Warriors this season with his defense. And according to stats, the opponents he guards shoot just 36.8% from the floor. Curry has improved his defense radically, and he is averaging career best 2 steals per game, and career low 2 fouls per game. Before the season started, Curry worked with assistant coaches on his defense, and they praise his high hands. Curry’s hands have helped him deflect shots and go for steals. He is also better at stripping opponents and his anticipation for team and help defense has also improved.
I also picked Stephen Curry as the next NBA Superstar back at the beginning of 2013 NBA season.
