After the mess that was last season for the Golden State Warriors, there was a lot of hope and optimism that the Warriors would get back to their championship ways this NBA season, but then Klay Thompson tore his right Achilles, keeping him out for his second-consecutive season. 

This was a major blow to the Warriors chances to find success this year, but nonetheless, they have still found a way to be relevant this year… and it definitely helps when you have one of the All-Time greats in Steph Curry!

There are not enough words to describe the type of season Curry is having this year, but he has been absolutely sensational, especially as of late.

We will dive into his stats and numbers shortly, but after looking like they may miss the playoffs entering the All-Star break, Stephen Curry has single-handedly led the Warriors back to being right in the thick of things in the Western Conference playoff picture and has them as one of the hottest teams in the league.

Curry cannot be stopped right now and as a result, he is playing himself right into the MVP conversation this year. Many believe that Nikola Jokic has the award wrapped up, but Stephen Curry has been the best player in the league over the last month or so and it is not even close! 

As a result, Steph Curry needs to be in the conversation for league MVP this season and here are three reasons why the greatest shooter to ever live is a dark-horse MVP candidate this year.
