Why Curry is clear MVP over Harden

For months, the race for the NBA’s most valuable player award has been misreported.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been anointed the favorite to win MVP based on being the proverbial “best player on the best team.” That’s an accurate description, certainly, but also one that sells Curry short.

Best player on the best team makes it sound like the Warriors’ success is driving Curry’s MVP candidacy. In truth, it’s the other way around. Curry has been the best player in the NBA this season. That’s why Golden State has the NBA’s best record, and that — not the record — is why Curry deserves MVP.

Historic scoring for a guard
