Stephen Curry has been spectacular in these NBA Finals, and there's no doubt that he has been the best player in the series thus far.
In the 2022 NBA Finals, Stephen Curry has averaged 34.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG, and 3.8 APG.
Magic Johnson is widely considered to be the greatest point guard of all time, and there's no doubt that he is someone who often provides insightful opinions on the happenings in the NBA.
Recently, Magic Johnson claimed that Stephen Curry should be the Finals MVP no matter who wins the series
"I think no matter who wins the Golden State vs. Boston series, Steph Curry should be the MVP because he’s been dominant in the first four games!"
We haven't seen a player from the losing team win the Finals MVP for a long time, not since Jerry West managed to win the Finals MVP award in 1969.
With that being said, Stephen Curry obviously would prefer to win the award while also helping his team win the series.
The Golden State Warriors did regain home-court advantage after Game 4, and perhaps they can use that to their advantage.
Stephen Curry has been absolutely dominant for the Golden State Warriors, but he'll need some help offensively if they are to win the NBA Finals.
No player has won without help, and as Klay Thompson aptly said, it seems ridiculous to ask Stephen Curry to score 43 points every game as he did in Game 4.
