NBA Finals: Is Steph Curry still a shoo-in for series MVP after Wiggins’ big night?

SAN FRANCISCO – Andrew Wiggins’ Game 5 masterpiece later inspired a startling concept:

“After tonight’s performance, there is legitimate nonsense that Wiggins should be in contention for the NBA Finals MVP award,” a reporter told Warriors coach Steve Kerr in a final question about Wiggins’ star turn.

Blind eyes in disbelief from some of the seasoned media members present in the room.

The NBA Finals MVP award — and the Larry O’Brien Championship trophy — is the loss of Steph Curry.

It has been curious since the start of this series as Curry did not win that honor during his five straight final appearances from 2015–19, which included three title wins.

It’s the only honor to have a Hall of Fame resume for basketball’s greatest shooter of all time, or so the chatter around the hardwoods goes.

Once Curry dropped 43 at Boston’s TD Garden for a Game 4 victory that turned the series momentum (and home-court advantage) back to the Warriors, it looked like the Bill Russell Trophy would be theirs. , possibly even if the dubs lost the series.

Now, this is not to discredit Wiggins, nor to deny any Celtics return.

If any of Boston’s talents — Jason Tatum and Jaylen Brown are among the top candidates — go big enough to take out Games 6 and 7, they’ll certainly have shit on their side for MVP.

Wiggins is neither a one-game nor a one-series wonder. An All-Star Game starter, he has made his Warriors postseason debut to show off his two-way prowess, from providing clutch baskets to double-digit rebounds.

Kerr, in answering the above question about “chatter” to Wiggins’ MVP ability, acknowledged that the Warriors “didn’t know” he could contribute so much strength at this level when traded for him from Minnesota, and Said that “Wigs has been a great fit.”
