Stephen Curry is adding a second straight NBA MVP award to his record-setting season.
A person with knowledge of the award says Curry will be announced as the winner perhaps as soon as Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NBA has not revealed the winner.
With his unmatched long-range shooting and slick ball-handling, Curry led the Warriors to an NBA-record 73 wins in the regular season, as both he and his team somehow improved after he won the MVP and led Golden State to its first championship in 40 years the previous season.
The honour comes as no surprise as Curry has been the frontrunner since early in the season to repeat. The only drama remaining is whether he will become the first player ever to win the award unanimously.
