MVP

Stephen Curry MVPLast night, Stephen Curry became the first unanimous Most Valuable Player in the history of the National Basketball Association. Soon after receiving the recognition courtside, He put on an incredible display of athleticism and skill on the court. He’s one of the greatest scorers the game has ever seen—and an even better person. He seems exactly like the kind of guy a kid (or middle-aged adult) could look up to. He exhibits personal faith in Jesus, demonstrates Christ-like character, and he highly values his family.

Plus, it’s just so much fun to watch him play ball! You gotta watch the video highlights from game 5 vs. the Portland Trailblazers below.

When Curry makes one of his long-range jump shots, he points his right finger upward, a practice he began in college at his mother’s suggestion. It’s an outward sign and internal reminder to give God the glory for his success. Curry says he plays the game “to use the stage I’m on . . . for a specific purpose: to be a witness and to share my testimony.”

Stephen Curry is changing how the game is played while remaining the same person he’s always been. He’s consistent, steady, and faithful rather than loud, proud, and obnoxious. He’s one of the good guys worth following on the court… and off.
