Not only did he win the award, he got all the votes. He's the first unanimous MVP in league history.

It's official: Steph Curry is the first unanimous #MVP in NBA history. Kawhi Leonard came in 2nd. LeBron James came in 3rd.

Curry and the Warriors posted the best record in NBA history, 73-9, this season. They surpassed the previous best-ever season by Michael Jordan's Bulls — that team who won 72 games during the 95-96 season.

Curry put up historic numbers himself a few times this year. Remember this shot to tie the all-time single-game three-point record?

Fittingly, The Chef got the MVP one day after yet another history-making game. On Monday, Curry scored 40 points in his first game back from injury to put the Warriors up 3-1 in their playoff series vs. the Blazers.

And of course he set another record — scoring 17 points in overtime, the most ever scored in overtime by a single player in ANY GAME EVER.
