Steph Curry has been playing some fantastic basketball this season. He has surpassed his earlier career-high of 56 points on two occasions this season. Overall, Steph Curry is playing at an MVP level this season, after almost a year out with injury. Despite his excellent performances, the Golden State Warriors have continued to struggle this year, and are in doubt for the playoffs.

D-Wade says Steph Curry won’t win MVP

NBA legend Dwyane Wade spoke on TNT earlier tonight. He says that Steph Curry is playing at an MVP level this season. However, he has tough odds against him to win the trophy, mostly due to the Warriors’ performances. They are losing to teams they beat during his prior MVP seasons, and other players in the league are playing as well as him while getting the win.

“He’s playing at an MVP level. But when your team is not winning the games that you won in those years, winning back-to-back MVPs. It’s just going to be hard for him to win when you got LeBron over there in LA doing what he’s doing.”

He added that Curry is currently his favorite player in basketball, and loves watching him play when he gets the chance to. “And KD doing what he’s doing in Brooklyn. He’s playing at an MVP level, there’s no question about it. He’s my favorite player to watch play the game of basketball right now.”

Steph Curry has been spectacular so far this season. He is currently averaging 29 points per game, at 43% from the three-point line. Additionally, he also helps others in the team get buckets with 6 assists a game. Curry is the driving force for the Golden State Warriors this year, but he has little to no help from his teammates at the moment.

If the Golden State Warriors want to make the playoffs this year, the team must start helping Steph Curry on the offensive end with more regularity. They have talented players such as Kelly Oubre Jr. and Andrew Wiggins, but consistency is the issue for them right now. If they can start contributing with regularity, the Warriors can reach the playoffs thanks to Steph Curry.
