Steve Kerr perfectly sums up Steph Curry's immense self-confidence at his MVP ceremony

BY Nunzio Ingrassia • May 10, 2016

There's no doubt Stephen Curry has ridiculous confidence in himself.

It's that confidence that allows him to take -- and make -- shots from the logo consistently. It's that confidence that helped him guide the Golden State Warriors to a record regular-season 73 wins. And it's that confidence that led him to being named the first unanimous MVP in NBA history Tuesday.

But if you need another example of Curry's confidence in his abilities, Warriors coach Steve Kerr provided a perfect one.

Before Curry accepted his second consecutive MVP trophy, Kerr relayed a moment from Curry's phenomenal 40-point outburst Monday night in his first game back from suffering a knee injury.

"He was 0 for 10 from the 3-point line last night," Kerr said Tuesday. "He made his 11th and he shimmied down the sidelines. I turned to (assistant coach) Luke (Walton), I said, 'Luke is he shimmying? He's 1 for 11 from 3.

"So you better believe in yourself when you're shimmying at 1 for 11."

It's hard to argue with the results. Curry scored an NBA-record 17 points in overtime to give the Warriors a 3-1 series lead over the Blazers.
