NBA player of the year: LeBron James or Steph Curry?

LeBron James and Steph Curry ruled the NBA in 2016. Both were voted the top players for the 2016-2017 NBA season. It makes total sense; both players led their respective teams to the 2016 NBA finals last season. LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA championship, and many argue he’s the greatest NBA player of all time. Steph was voted 2016 MVP, and many argue he’s the best NBA shooter of all-time. But who’s the NBA player of the year? Read more and vote below! [?]


LeBron and Steph dominated the court in 2016. And they are commonly the most top-ranked players. Sorry, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook fans, but it’s all about LeBron and Steph. When including the 2016 NBA Finals (for 2015-2016 season) and the current NBA season, who was the top NBA player this year?

LeBron led the Cavs to a NBA finals victory–wining his first ring in Cleveland. Fans commonly debate if he’s actually better than Michael Jordan. LeBron is nearly tied with MJ in awards and recognition. The starting forward has three title rings and has been NBA’s MVP four times. The Washington Post voted him as the top player of the 2016-2017 season. While many are on Steph’s bandwagon, LeBron is the one who really dominated 2016. His stats prove it.

But Steph Curry is not just a popular player, he’s a superstar. The NBA awarded him the MVP award in 2016. And although the Warriors lost the NBA championship, Steph was a true team leader. Plus, he’s still at the top of his game this season. Steph broke the record for 3-pointers in one game, and many now call him the best shooter in the NBA. Steph’s greatness might have made him the most talked about NBA player in 2016. Hence, he won the year. Here are his stats.
