Steph Curry made quite a case for Finals MVP. 

He averaged 27.5 points, 6.8 assists, 6.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and combined to shoot 21-of-43 (48.8 percent) from three in Games 1, 2 and 4 of Golden State’s sweep against Cleveland. Nevertheless, the honor went to Kevin Durant, who was named Finals MVP for the second straight season.

Curry said he had no problem with Durant taking home the hardware.

Is he telling the truth?

“I know he’s telling the truth,” Dell Curry said on Tiki and Tierney. “He’s all about (the) team game. Obviously he would love to have it, but it’s nothing he is concerned about. He’s all into the team sports, into the team game, all about winning. The individual awards will take care of itself. He couldn’t be happier with KD coming over from the Thunder and winning two in a row. So yeah, he’s not worried about that. It’ll happen because I think they have several more years where they can compete for a title and Steph is still at the top of his game.”

That’s putting it mildly. Steph has had one of the greatest four-year runs in NBA history: four NBA Finals appearances, three NBA championships, two regular-season MVP awards, and a record 73 wins, among other accolades.

Yet, he has no problem deferring to Durant. In fact, he wanted Durant in Oakland.

“It takes a special person – and I’m not just saying it because it’s my son,” Curry said. “I’ve played in the league, I know the league, I’ve seen what happens on a daily basis. It takes a special person, especially a guy that’s a superstar to say, ‘Hey, I’m going to welcome another superstar here, we’re going to make it work – because it’s all about what we do as a team and an organization. The individual awards will take care of themselves. We need as much talent as we can get to be consistent and win titles in this league.’ Steph is really special in that area.”
