Steph Curry wins NBA MVP award

Steph Curry became the first unanimous NBA Most Valuable Player winner as he claimed the award for the second year in succession.

The Golden State Warriors guard was first in by each of the 130 votes cast by the media as he earned 1,310 points.

The 28-year-old helped his franchise make NBA history with a record 73 wins in the regular season.

He also became the first player to net more than 400 three-pointers in a season, with a final tally of 402.

Curry returned from a knee injury on Monday to score 40 points, including an NBA-record 17 in overtime, in a play-offs win over Portland Trail Blazers.

San Antonio forward Kawhi Leonard was second in the MVP awards with 634 points, and LeBron James of Cleveland cavaliers was third with 631 points.
