Stephen Curry doesn't get to vote for the NBA MVP, but if he did, he would vote for himself.
That's what he told "The Dan Patrick Show" two weeks ago.
He also told Patrick that if he couldn't vote for himself, he would, "probably vote for LeBron. He's one of the most talented guys on the face of the planet."
That means Curry wouldn't pick Anthony Davis, who along with Curry, LeBron, James Harden and Russell Westbrook, is considered one of the Top 5 MVP candidates.

But if Curry could have the future of Westbrook, Harden or Davis -- the decision would be easy.
"Anthony Davis all day long," Curry told Patrick. "He's doing special stuff before the age of 22. It's unreal ... I saw him this summer playing with Team USA together, and just watching him shoot, you could tell he was a guard at one point growing up because he just has those mechanics that you can't really teach.
"I predict he'll probably be a 40 percent 3-point shooter by the time his career is over. So if you add that to his game, I don't know what you do."
The Pelicans' power forward joined Patrick on Wednesday and was asked to pick his MVP.
He did not choose Curry.
"You know, it's tough," Davis said. "There's a lot of guys playing out of their minds. James Harden, Russ[ell Westbrook], Steph[en Curry], you know, LeBron [James]. But ... [long pause] I mean, James Harden. It'd probably have to be James.
"He's out of his mind. He's definitely playing out of his mind. We talk about this with my team every day. Like, every day ... It's tough. It's going to be great to see who gets it. All three guys — James, Steph and Russ — are playing out of their minds right now. Especially Russ."
Curry is sixth in the NBA in points (23.7) and assists (7.8), third in steals (2.1), and first in Real Plus-Minus (9.16) and 3-pointers made (251).
Harden is second in the NBA in points (27.2), tied for eighth in assists (7.0), tied for fifth in steals (1.92), second in Real Plus-Minus (8.66) and fourth in 3-pointers made (184).
Curry's team boasts the best record in the NBA (61-13), while Harden's Rockets are a half-game behind Memphis for third in the Western Conference.
The winner will be announced in May.
