Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry has become the first unanimous MVP in the NBA's history.

The 28-year-old is the Association's Most Valuable Player for a second consecutive season after guiding the defending champions to a best-ever regular season record (73-9).

Curry, who joined Golden State in 2009, is also the first point guard since Steve Nash in 2004-05 and 2005-06 to be named MVP two years in a row.

The NBA star received 1,310 points from 130 voters within the media in the United States and Canada, beating Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.
