3. Steph Curry will be the MVP

The performance that Curry displayed on Wednesday night had me sold that he’s going to be this year’s Most Valuable Player. In just three quarters he registered 51 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists.

Curry went 15-24 from the floor and 11-16 from distance. For most of the game everyone was just observing Curry put on a show. Even the whole Wizards team got caught watching the performance.

I don’t understand why Washington didn’t attack him more on the defensive end to try and tire him out. Instead Curry was having a roast fest and everyone on the Wizards roster was taking part in it.

Even though it was an embarrassing loss, this tremendous performance was fantastic to watch. Curry is a a generational player, which makes it hard to hate him. He’s demonstrated how to overcome the odds of being a true underdog to becoming one of the most elite players in the NBA.

It seemed like Curry was playing alone in the gym, hitting dagger after dagger. As we see below his range is unbelievable.

When a Michael Jordan shrug is performed not once but twice, that means the night really did belong to Curry. Hopefully the next time the Wizards take on the Warriors they realize that Curry can shoot from anywhere. Otherwise they will be in for another long night.

Curry will get the MVP this season, mark my words.
