Curry received the NBA Stephen Curry 2Sportsmanship Award at the same year also. Sadly, he was injured multiple times in 2011-2012 season and some of it needs a surgery. So he just played 26 regular season games and averaged just 14.7 points per game.

He was back on track in 2012-2014 seasons and focused on improving himself again. Curry’s game came back to normal and he was also back breaking records again. Most three pointers made in a single season both him and his team, career high in points, and franchise leader in career three points are just some of the records Curry broke during the 2012-2014 seasons.

Curry became an MVP in both 2015 and 2016 season. The Golden State Warriors together with their MVP Stephen Curry broke another regular season record of most wins in a single season by a team in 2016. Two straight NBA Finals appearance also for the Golden State Warriors but they only managed to get 1 championship because the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals in 2016. Even if they did not win, we cannot point the fact that they are a team of caliber with their MVP and we will continue to observe how they will rise again.
