With four NBA seasons under his belt Curry is looking to make major waves in 2013. After getting snubbed from the All-Star team last Winter, it’s time for Curry to show exactly why he’s the most valuable player in all of basketball. While Curry’s dominance from three-point land is likely to help his MVP campaign; the Golden State guard must thrive in the paint as well.
No one is asking the 6-foot-3 and 183 pound Curry to become the next Derrick Rose when it comes to driving to the bucket, but MVP voters must see Curry make some improvement in that category. Moreover, if Curry can lead the NBA in three-point field goals made like he did in 2012, then there is no reason why he can’t make the leap to a possible MVP candidate.
Keep in mind that the Warriors are likely to be atop the Western Conference this year, which is only going to help Curry’s cause. Everyone loves an underdog story, so don’t be surprised if Curry improves his game and reaps the benefits of Golden State becoming the next best thing in the NBA.
