I’ll admit it. I fell asleep on Steph Curry doing Steph Curry things.

I fell asleep on Steph Curry inputting his own personal “God Mode” code in the 4th quarter. And when scored 17 in overtime to beat the Portland Trail Blazers and lead his Golden State Warriors on the precipice of their second straight Western Conference Final. Then again, I wasn’t shocked. Not in the slightest. Steph Curry came off the bench with a sort of hobbled MCL and lit up the Blazers for 40. He missed his first ten shots from three, something he’s never done. But the rhythm eventually came, the shots started falling and Portland understood one thing – the baddest motherf*cker with a Malcolm Goes To Mecca Beard had come to take their hopes and dreams.

I fell asleep because I knew the inevitable had arrived once I saw Shaun Livingston curse out Scott Foster on his way to getting ejected. Steph had to play, the Warriors weren’t about to trot Leandro Barbosa, a playoff dandy for the Phoenix Suns a full decade ago and have him deal with Damian Lillard & CJ McCollum. Curry had to do it. Otherwise the Warriors would have lost 3 games to one team and back-to-back for the first time all season.

Steph Curry is the Undertaker, he is a 6’3″ Brock Lesnar with a jumper that immediately deflates your home crowd with a flick of the wrist. He’s literally Thanos with all of the Infinity Stones. And he just became the NBA’s first ever unanimous MVP.

I argued that Russell Westbrook would be the one to disturb the House of Curry for his prized trophy. Well, league voters decided that Kawhi Leonard was the second best player in the league this season, followed by LeBron James, Westbrook & Kevin Durant.

We’ve already discussed the statistics from this season, the best individual season from an MVP since Michael Jordan’s 32-8-8. 50/45/90 shooting splits, 73-9, 402 three pointers, the highest jump scoring wise between MVP seasons, I could keep going.

Steph Curry is a cheat code.

That’s all I got on it.
