Stephen Curry wins three awards during NBPA Players' Awards night

Published Add your comment

Stephen Curry's season may have ended in disappointment as the Golden State Warriors gave up a 3-1 lead against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the personal accolades keep on coming for the point guard.

After becoming the first unanimous MVP in league history, his performances in the finals were hard to watch. But that does not take away from the incredible regular season he had as the Dubs amassed a stunning 73-9 record to beat the previous best of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls.

In the second edition of the NBPA Players' Awards, that took place on Twitter last night, Curry was the recipient of three titles.

The votes are cast before the end of the regular season, so his struggles against Kyrie Irving and the incredible performance of LeBron James were not a factor as he was named the MVP. He was also voted the Toughest to Guard and was the winner of the Clutch Performer award.

His performances in the regular season were nothing short of extraordinary as he produced some of the most amazing examples of clutch shooting you are ever likely to see. At times, it seemed like he was more than human, and his three-point shooting was off the charts as he broke his own personal best for threes in a single campaign.

The personal accolades continue to stack up for the point guard, but the disappointment of the finals will only prove as motivation to come back even better next season. It's going to be a fun watch.
