As you’ve probably heard by now, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was voted the NBA’s Most Valuable Player for the second year in a row. He’s also the first player to ever garner a unanimous selection for the award, which is understandable considering the season that he and his team have had. His 400+ threes and crazy shooting percentages prove what we’ve know about Curry all along: he rarely misses.
Except when he’s trying to shake the hand of NBA commissioner Adam Silver. Last night, at the trophy presentation for Curry’s MVP award prior to Game 5 against the Portland Trailblazers, Curry attempted to shake Silver’s hand and the commissioner left him hanging.
To be fair to Silver, it doesn’t look like he saw Curry extend his hand, but that doesn’t mean we can’t joke about it. Curry for his part was able to do a little shimmy and shake it off before going on to torch the Blazers for 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists on 10-20 shooting in a 125-121 win to advance to the Western Conference Finals.
