As if 2015 hasn’t already been a breakout year for Stephen Curry, the NBA superstar was just named The Associated Press 2015 Male Athlete of the Year.

Curry helped the Golden State Warriors end their 40-year-long playoff drought by winning the 2015 NBA championship and helped the team get off to a record start this season.

His ability to sink three-pointers and jump shots with ease solidified him as not only the best player in the league, but the world. Aside from the superstar’s performance on the court, the world has become captivated by his charisma and charming family. With wife Ayesha finding her own spotlight in the culinary world and daughter Riley’s adorable antics during press conferences, the entire Curry family has had quite the year.

Curry joins LeBron James, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird as the only basketball players to win the honor in the 85 years of the award.
