Stephen Curry isn’t just racking up the hardware from the Golden State of Mind community. He’s also taking home awards from the NBA.

After a ridiculous January, the Golden State Warriors point guard was selected as the Western Conference Player of the Month.

Curry’s January was truly elite. He averaged 29.5 points, 6.7 assists, and 5.1 rebounds per game, while shooting 46.3% on threes, and scoring with an absurdly efficient 71.0% true-shooting percentage.

Just as importantly, he led Golden State to an 11-3 record in January, including 10-2 in the games that he played in.

Curry is the first Warrior to win the award this year, as the Houston RocketsJames Harden and the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook won the first two months, respectively.

It is, however, the seventh time in his career that Curry has been named Player of the Month, and marks the sixth consecutive year that he’s won the award.

In addition to the Player of the Month, on Monday Curry was named the West’s Player of the Week for the second time this year, and the 12th time in his career.

At this point, it is now safe to say that he is very good at basketball. But in case you forgot, here’s some video evidence:
