Steph Curry misses out on unique NBA ‘Grand Slam’ honor

Steph Curry misses out on unique NBA ‘Grand Slam’ honor

Hyped by on June 18, 2015 Website: www.statsontapp.com

When Golden State's Andre Iguodala was selected as the NBA Finals MVP on Tuesday night, it prevented Warriors star and teammate Steph Curry from becoming the ninth NBA player to win a unique version of the league's Grand Slam.

Curry led the Warriors to the league's best regular-season record and a title while being named the 2014-15 season MVP. Iguodala, however, was named the Finals MVP. Eight players previously won the league MVP, Finals MVP, and saw his team win the most games in the regular season and win the title.

Here's a look at those players who won the league MVP and Finals MVP in the same year their team won the most regular-season games and the NBA title.

1970: Willis Reed, New York Knicks
1971: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Milwaukee Bucks
1983: Moses Malone, Philadelphia 76ers
1984, 1986: Larry Bird, Boston Celtics
1987: Magic Johnson, Los Angeles Lakers
1992, 1996: Michael Jordan, Chicago Bulls
2000: Shaquille O'Neal, Los Angeles Lakers
2013: LeBron James, Miami Heat
