Steph Curry was named Best NBA Player at Saturday night's ESPYs, and made sure to thank all the fans who selected him in a pre-recorded message.

"Hey I just wanna thank all the fans who voted for Best NBA Player, it was a hell of a season, a hell of a year, trying to reinvent myself out there on the court and it was a lot of fun out there trying to expand my game," Curry said. "I do it for the fans and do it for you guys and I really appreciate the love and support and am looking forward to bigger and better things in the future knowing that I still got it."

Steph beat out fellow finalists Luka Doncic, Nikola Jokic and Chris Paul to win his second Best NBA Player award at the ESPYs. Curry previously won the award in 2015, also winning Best Male Athlete in that cycle.

Curry finished third in NBA MVP voting this past season, with Jokic and Joel Embiid finishing ahead of the Warriors star.

Steph won the scoring title after averaging 32 points per game, as he helped carry the Warriors to the play-in tournament.

He did not make an in-person appearance at the event in New York, as Curry currently is competing in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.

He might not have been the official MVP, but it appears the fans and ESPY voters saw him as the class of the NBA for the 2020-21 season.
