After winning the NBA scoring title, being named first-team All-NBA and finishing third in MVP voting, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been nominated for another honor.

ESPN announced Curry is among the four finalists for its Best NBA Player ESPY Award. Steph is up against NBA MVP Nikola Jokić, Luka Dončić of the Dallas Mavericks and Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns. The winner will be announced when the awards show takes place on July 10 in New York City.

Curry led the league in scoring, averaging 32.0 points per game while also putting up 5.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds. At age 33, he became the oldest player to win the NBA scoring title since Michael Jordan did it at age 35 during the 1997-98 season.

Steph shot 42.1 percent from beyond the arc and averaged an NBA-record 5.3 made 3-pointers per game.

The four nominees were among the top-six in NBA MVP voting. Jokić took home the award, while Paul finished fifth and Dončić one spot behind him.

Fans will have their say in who takes home the ESPY for Best NBA Player. You can cast your vote through ESPN’s website up until 5 p.m. PT on Friday, July 9.
