MVP results: Curry, Harden, LeBron, Westbrook, Davis. Full disclosure: that was also my order.
-- "Hey, Steph, May the 4th be with you." -- "Sorry, but I don't do fourth." http://t.co/29scQgFJdY
LeBron on Thibodeau's voice calling out defenses: "It’s almost all automatically raspy from him just yelling all the time."
Kobe won after '07 FIBA Americas; LeBron, '08 Olympics; DRose, '10 World Championships; LeBron, '12 Olympics; now Steph Curry, '14 World Cup

Chris Paul finishes 6th and Blake Griffin finishes 9th in MVP voting. http://t.co/r49I0Se4PQ

To answer the next question to Bay Area folks, Stephen Curry press conference is not open to the public.
2014-2015 NBA MVP Votes: Curry 1.198 points Harden 936 James 552 Westbrook 352 Davis 203 Paul 124
Westbrook didn't get any first-place votes, got five second-place, 33 third-place, 41 fourth-place and 29 fifth-place.
quite honestly, the 7 who did not place LJ in top 5 should no longer be allowed to vote.
According to the results, I left James Harden entirely out of MVP Top 5. That was not my intentions.
My personal pick for MVP would have been Harden but no fault with Curry winning it. Best player on league's best team
GSW got off easy on Steph Curry's current deal (4 years, $44M) b/c of his ankles. Pretty sure that won't be the case in 2017 when he's a UFA

As someone who has never seen Star Wars, I will be glad when this day is over. Bring on Cinco De Mayo.
Reminder: Stephen Curry was a huge, huge, huge, huge injury risk earlier in career. Predicting injuries, good or bad, almost impossible.
James Harden was left off one ballot. LeBron was left off seven. Westbrook didn't make it on 22. Davis, 33.
For what it's worth, the best original D-League team name was the Charleston Lowgators
7 of 130 voters did not place LeBron in top 5. now that's bad!!!
We're no better than the guy who voted Curry 5th. Look at the crazy Noah fever that swept over us last season http://t.co/LopxZKQcpa
Crazy season when 82 GP, 56 W, 19.1 PPG, 10.2 APG, 49/40/90 & league's biggest on-off-court NetRtg differential gets you 6th in MVP voting.
Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal combined to win two MVP awards. Do you think Stephen Curry ties or exceeds their total before he retires?
Curry beat Harden by 236 votes. Recent MVPs that were closer: '12 LeBron>KD 185 '08 Kobe>CP 216 '07 Dirk>Nash 125 '05Nash>Shaq 34
What are the best Star Wars related sports nicknames/names/connections? Such as, Kenny "Sky" Walker.
Steph Curry wins MVP, gets 100 of 130 first place votes. Harden gets 25, LeBron 5. Kinda surprised Westbrook didn't get a first place vote
Brow finishing fifth for MVP is a clear indicator of how much talent the league has right now. You don't like the NBA? You're beyond help
Curry gets the MVP - and I finally get a vote on a winner. My ballot was Curry, Harden, Westbrook, Paul and James - with apologies to Davis.
expect LeBron to be highly motivated. superstars say right things, but look for mvp "disses" and respond accordingly
