As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Stephen Curry is the first ever NBA MVP to winner unanimously.

Curry received a possible 131 out of 131 first-place votes.

The award is based on a media vote from the United States and Canada and a single vote decided upon by fans.

San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard finished in second-place with 54 second-place votes, and LeBron James finished in third with 40 second-place votes.

Michael Jordan won five times. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar won six times. LeBron James has won the award four times. Yet none of these have ever been unanimously selected in the award’s 61-year history.

Curry is also the 11th all-time back-to-back MVP winner, having won in 2014-15.
