Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry, who is almost single-handidly changing the NBA, has been named the Associated Press’ Male Athlete of The Year.
Curry guided the Warriors to their first championship in 40 years and was named MVP of the Finals. He is also putting up astronomical numbers; averaging 30 points per game, while shooting 51 percent from the field and 44 percent from three.
What separates Curry from the rest of the NBA is that he’s doing all of this while looking like a high school math teacher.
“The way that I play has a lot of skill but is stuff that if you go to the YMCA or rec leagues or church leagues around the country, everybody wants to shoot, everybody wants to handle the ball, make creative passes and stuff like that,” Curry told the AP. “You can work on that stuff. Not everybody has the vertical, or the physical gifts to be able to go out and do a windmill dunk and stuff like that. I can’t even do it.”
