But, he is far more than just a basketball player.
Curry has transformed the game on and off the court.
His three-point shooting has changed the way the game is played at all levels.
Also, he has become a fan favorite and a worldwide icon.
As the NBA continues to reach plenty of counties around the world, Curry is one player everyone recognizes.
So it should have been no surprise to see him getting MVP chants in the opposing team’s arenas.
Head coach Steve Kerr compared Curry to one of the greatest NBA players of all time based on his popularity.

On the court, Curry has all the accolades you look for in an NBA legend.
He has won four championships, along with two league MVPs, and made eight All-Star teams.
Also, similar to Michael Jordan, Curry has built a brand with Under Armour that has become one of the most popular among athletes.
Curry has already released 10 signature shoes for his brand along with various other merchandise.
Likewise, Curry has taken his brand worldwide by embarking on multiple Asia tours, across China, the Philippines, and Japan.
His historic playoff run last season brought even more fandom the way of Curry.
The 34-year-old was the most-viewed player across all NBA social media platforms this past year.
