10 different players before Stephen Curry won back to back MVP awards in the NBA. The 20 year old just assembled the most proficient volume scoring season in the NBA history. Becoming the first player this league has ever seen to average 30 points per game in less than 35 minutes per game and sinked 400 three-pointers in a single season -- his previous record was 286 last season -- while joining Steve Nash and his coach, Steve Kerr, as the only players in league history to shoot at least 50 percent from the floor, 45 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the line in a single season.
The 28-year-old will be the 11th player to win back-to-back MVP awards in the NBA's 70-season existence. James was the last to achieve that feat with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013.
According to ESPN.com, Stephen Curry will be named NBA Most Valuable Player for a second straight season, according to league sources.
Sources told ESPN.com that the MVP award for Curry is set to be announced in the next few days, when Warriors return to Oakland, California, on Tuesday after Monday night's Game 4 in Portland.
