Warriors’ Stephen Curry says ‘I gotta be’ NBA MVP, yet recognizes he ‘most likely will not get it’

Stephen Curry is on probably the most blazing streak in NBA history. Over his previous 11 games, the Golden State Warriors star is averaging an amazing 40 points per game and making simply under portion of his 14.3 3-point attempts per game. Throughout the span of eight days between April 12-19, he had four games with in any event 10 made 3-pointers. In NBA history, Klay Thompson is the solitary other player with at least five 10 3-pointer games in his whole profession. Curry’s run is totally exceptional, and with Golden State presently having won five of its previous six games, the Warriors trail the No. 8-seeded Memphis Grizzlies by just a solitary game.

His streak has the NBA world inquiring as to whether Nikola Jokic’s apparently iron handle on the MVP grant may be in harm’s way. Curry as of late showed up on the Rex Chapman show with the full meeting set to be delivered Thursday, however in a see delivered Wednesday, Curry said he’s “gotta be” the MVP.

“I mean, I gotta be,” replied Curry. “I gotta be. I probably won’t get it, but whatever.

“I like to be dramatic sometimes so I’m just setting the table.”

Curry recognized that he “presumably will not get” the honor, and that is right. He has effectively missed eight games, while Jokic has played the whole season. Denver is presently scheduled to complete fourth in the Western Conference while the Warriors, best case scenario, are taking a gander at a play-in billet. Jokic drives the NBA in practically every major progressed metric. As predominant as Curry has been of late, the honor is given for execution over the whole season. Most prognosticators actually lean towards Jokic on that front.

Be that as it may, the season isn’t finished at this point. The Warriors actually have 14 games left, and if Curry can keep this degree of execution up through the finish of the period, his case will just go more grounded. A 25-game streak averaging in the neighborhood of 40 points per game would essentially be unfathomable, and regardless of where the Warriors end up in the standings, such an exhibition would surely drive citizens to at any rate rethink their positions. Curry is facing a tough conflict for the MVP grant, however in the event that he continues playing this well, the sky is the limit.
