By winning the 2015 NBA MVP, Steph Curry became the third NBA player under 6’4″ to win the MVP. Allen Iverson (2001) and Steve Nash (2005, 2006) are the only others. In many ways, Nash is the only precedent to Curry, in terms of an MVP. Nash’s court-vision was unparalleled. Curry’s off-the-dribble shooting is unparalleled. Both continued to improve as defenders as they progressed. Here’s hoping Curry’s Warriors are able to accomplish what Nash’s Suns never did: win a title.
Here is the full list of NBA MVPs.
