MVP Steph Curry Donates Kia Sorento to Oakland Youth Center
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen “Steph” Curry recently won the NBA MVP award, having just completed a season in which he averaged 23.8 points per game, 7.7 assists per game, and 2.0 steals per game, while leading his team to a No. 1 seed position in the Western Conference Playoffs.
As a reward for his efforts, Steph was given a free 2016 Kia Sorento LX (as well as, you know, tons and tons of cash). Being the nice guy that he is, Curry (who also won this year’s Kia Community Assist Award), donated the vehicle to the East Oakland Youth Development Council, an organization that helps young adults develop their social and leadership skills.

In total, Kia has donated a total of 38 cars to charity since it began sponsoring the NBA in 2008, which seems like a pretty good stat.
Curry’s fellow Akronite, LeBron James, has also contributed to that impressive total, which includes the custom King James Edition K900 luxury sedan that he’s auctioning off to support his charity, the LeBron James Foundation.

Chicago Bulls’ forward Jimmy Butler, who was named the National Basketball Association’s Most Improved Player for the 2014-2015 season, also received a Sorento LX, which will be sent to the charity of his choosing. Unless, of course, Butler decides to keep the vehicle for himself.
But that would be excessively hostile and villainous, which is not Butler’s style… it’s more Joakim Noah’s style.
