Kevin Durant & Steph Curry

KD explains what makes Curry so likeable among fans

Kevin Durant says nobody attracts more crowds in the NBA than Steph Curry, which often feels like he is playing in front of the home crowd regardless of which arena he plays in.

Two leading MVP candidates

The leading MVP candidate this season is Steph Curry, with Kevin Durant being right in the same conversation. The two superstars are putting on an absolute display of dominance, competing for the title for the best scorer in the NBA. It seems that ever since the season started, Curry has been on a mission to get back in the NBA Finals, putting his team on his back and being one of the most consistent superstars so far this season. On top of that, he solidified his name as the all-time leader in three-pointers made, which is a testament to his greatness.

Currently, Curry is the most likable player in the NBA, and he is the main reason the Warriors are one of the most followed teams in the league, having fans all over the country and the world. It's even gotten so far that Kevin Durant noticed it because the last time the Warriors played the Nets in Barclays Arena, it almost seemed like they were playing in the Oracle Arena. There were so many fans in Curry's jersey it was surprising considering the fact Nets have Durant, Harden, and Irving on their team.

Like it's just not the Barclays arena where he gets MVP chants and cheers after he has five threes in a row, its always going to be like that, that's so who he is, that is what he attracts."
