Illustration for article titled This Is The Hero Treatment MVP Steph Curry Deserves

This season’s runaway MVP, Stephen Curry, first came on the scene as a college superstar with one of the sweetest shooting strokes in the country. But it’s his basketball IQ and mastery of the assist that make him worthy of superhero status in his very own comic book.


You can’t always see the brain power at work behind Curry’s flawless assists (that’s what makes them flawless) — but graphic designer and Boom Studios illustrator Chris Visions had no trouble unleashing the young guard’s studied approach onto the pages of the comic book below. Click through to see Curry’s prowess in action.


The basketball court isn’t the only place the Curry family has made their mark. Stephen’s twin brother, State Farm agent Sebastian Curry, has put his own capacity for knowledge to good use by assisting clients in need. With a master’s in Disaster and a Ph.D. in Calamity, Sebastian continues the family tradition of racking up assists in high-pressure situations.

The Curry brothers have already earned recognition for their artful assists, but, like the agents at State Farm, they understand knowledge is a never-ending journey. Contact your local State Farm agent today to learn how you can benefit from their intelligent assistance.
