OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — It's been an eventful 24 hours for Stephen (STEH'-fehn) Curry.
The Golden State Warriors guard is the first unanimous selection as the NBA's Most Valuable Player, receiving first-place nods from all 130 voters. Curry also is the 11th player in league history to win the award in consecutive years. The honor was announced hours after he set an NBA record with 17 overtime points while scoring 40 in Golden State's win at Portland.
Curry had another outstanding season while leading the Warriors to a league-record 73 wins. He led the NBA in scoring at 30.1 points a game and broke his own league mark by hitting 402 3-pointers. Curry also led the NBA in free throw percentage and steals.
San Antonio's Kawhi (kuh-WY') Leonard finished second in the balloting, followed by LeBron James of Cleveland.
