NBA star Stephen Curry is reportedly going to be the 2014-15 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP).
Multiple reports claim that the Golden State Warriors star point guard will receive the prestigious honor officially on Monday, according to The Score.
To say that Stephen Curry has had an amazing season this year in the NBA would be a major understatement in the eyes of basketball fans and critics alike.

The 27-year-old point guard averaged 23.8 points, 7.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 2 steals a game throughout the season. Those statistics are emphasized further by the fact that Stephen Curry only averaged 32.7 minutes per game.
Thanks to his diligent efforts, hard work, and undeniable skills, the Golden State Warriors were able to maintain an incredible season record of 67 wins to 15 losses.
With a win percentage of 81.7 percent, that placed the Warriors at the top of the list when it came to the best team record of the season.
What makes that type of achievement such a major milestone is the simple fact that winning 67 times (or more) in a single season has only been accomplished by 11 teams in NBA history.
The competition for MVP this season was a very tight race — especially when you consider that the top two contenders for the prestigious award were James Harden and Stephen Curry.

Many people strongly believed that James Harden would become the one chosen as the Most Valuable Player in the NBA this season.
Respect to Stephen Curry but James Harden shoulda won MVP But it’s not Most Valuable Player…it’s the Best Player on Best Team ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Even NBA star and future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant believed that James Harden would be named the NBA MVP instead of Stephen Curry.
However, if the reports that have started circulating online are true, Stephen Curry will be the one chosen to walk away with the title this season.
If the Golden State Warriors continue with the strong off-season drive that they have apparently maintained heading into the West Semi-Finals, Stephen Curry might walk away with a lot more than just a NBA MVP award this year.
