The NBA announced today that Golden State Warriors stars Stephen Curry has won the 2014 NBA Community Assist Seasonlong Award, adding to a season of accolades that included his first All-Star appearance and almost certainly an All-NBA selection.

The NBA's release documented Curry's international, national, and local community service efforts.

Curry's seasonlong generosity included visiting patients at the Children's Hospital in Oakland, fulfilling the dream of a Make-A-Wish child, helping dedicate a Reading & Learning Center in China and providing meals to more than 400 underserved families in partnership with Feed The Children. Curry brought 645 youth to sit in Curry's Corner during Golden State Warriors home games and made time to sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans.

"I've been living in the Bay Area for the last five years and I call this place home," said Curry. "To be able to help support my community, particularly its youth and families in need is a very rewarding experience."

In honor of Curry's award, NBA Cares will donate $25,000 to ThanksUSA on Curry's behalf. Curry is the national spokesman for ThanksUSA and you can check out their blog documenting the achievements of those that received the scholarship to get a better sense of what they do.

NBA Cares will hold a press conference in front of the Warriors' practice facility tomorrow at 10 a.m. to formally announce the award.

There has been no word about whether Cliff Paul received any consideration for the award.
