Stephen Curry, the standout point guard for the Golden State Warriors, has been on a tear through the first four games of the 2022 NBA Finals,

to the point where Hall of Famer Magic Johnson believes he has established himself as the series' finest player.

Regardless of whether the Warriors win or lose against the Boston Celtics, Johnson believes Curry should be crowned Finals MVP.

Curry has averaged 34.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.8 assists in four games versus Boston, shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 49.0 percent from three-point range.

He's coming off a 43-point, 10-rebound performance in Game 4 on Friday, which helped Golden State square the series at 2-2 with a 107-97 win.

Curry's sole snub is the Finals MVP honour, which he has yet to win in his illustrious career.

Curry, a three-time champion and two-time regular-season MVP, recently told ESPN's Malika Andrews that he wants to win another championship.

"It would mean everything," Curry added, "because that pretty much means you're going to win the series." "When Andre won, when KD won both of his, there was just so much excitement in that time.

There's so much delight in that moment, regardless of who wins, that you want to be able to enjoy it."

Jerry West is the only player in NBA history to be selected Finals MVP while playing for a losing team, and that was in 1969. 

In 2015, despite his Cleveland Cavaliers losing to Curry and the Warriors, LeBron James garnered a few votes for Finals MVP.

In Monday's Game 5 at Chase Center, Curry will have another chance to add to his Finals MVP resume.
