Steph Curry is 2015 NBA MVP

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was named the NBA's most valuable player Monday, according to a person familiar with the outcome of the media vote. Curry earned 100 of 130 first-place votes for 1,198 points to run away with the MVP trophy. He beat out the Houston Rockets’ James Harden (936 points, 25 first-place votes), the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James (552 points, five first-place votes), the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook (352 points) and the New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis (203 points) in the race.

Curry led the Warriors to a franchise-record 67 wins while averaging 23.8 points (sixth in the NBA), 7.7 assists (sixth), a career-high 2.04 steals (fourth) and 4.3 rebounds. The 27-year-old Curry also made 286 three-pointers, a new single-season record. While the specifics of the vote are not yet known, Curry was widely expected to be in a close race with the Houston Rockets' James Harden. Curry becomes just the second Warriors player to be named MVP, joining Wilt Chamberlain (1959-60).
