Stephen Curry claims second NBA MVP award

Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry is set to be named NBA Most Valuable Player for a second consecutive season.

The 28-year-old could become the first player to be unanimously chosen in NBA history, with Shaquille O’Neal in 2000 and LeBron James in 2003 both falling short by one vote.

Curry is the first player to average 30 points per game in less than 35 minutes per game throughout a full season.

He also set a new three-pointer record in a single campaign when he managed 402 points.

Curry will become only the eleventh player to win back-to-back MVPs, with LeBron James the last player to do so in 2012.
