Stephen Curry Wins 2013-14 Kia Community Assist Award


It's been a slow month for Warriors news since Steve Kerr was hired, but Stephen Curry is still doing his part to keep Golden State in the headlines for the right reasons.

Curry has been named the winner of the 2013-14 Kia Community Assist Seasonlong Award, " recognition of his remarkable charitable contributions, fundraising and generosity in the Bay Area and across the globe.".

The award, decided by a panel of judges and fans, was heavily influenced by Curry's body of charitable work throughout his NBA career. Curry is the national spokesman for ThanksUSA, a foundation that provides scholarships to military families (the league will donate $25,000 to the foundation in Curry's honor).

He also hosts on a charity golf tournament each year for ThanksUSA, has traveled to Africa to donate over 38,000 mosquito nets, and puts on annual basketball camps for Bay Area kids (the full rundown of Curry's charitable efforts can be found in the NBA's official press release).

Curry averaged 24 points and 8.5 assists per game in 2013-14, both career highs. Golden State fell to the Los Angeles Clippers in seven games during the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs, and head coach Mark Jackson was fired shortly after.
