2019-2020 NBA MVP

-Stephen Curry

- This season, Curry gets thrust back into the MVP voting due to the responsibility that he will have to shoulder. In the last few seasons, he may have had a few votes taken away due to his teammate and other MVP candidate Kevin Durant stealing some of the spotlight.

With Durant now in Brooklyn and fellow splash brother Klay Thompson out for the season, Curry stands a good shot at the MVP due to the usage rate he will be issued with this season.

If the Warriors are able to earn a top-four seed in the highly competitive Western Conference and Curry finishes near or at the top of the league in scoring as well as shooting percentages from three, then he will join the elite club of three-time MVP winners like: LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, among others.
