In its latest magazine issue, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is featuring arguably the current best basketball player in the world.

He has just been named Most Valuable Player of the NBA for the second year in a row – and after leading the Golden State Warriors to the best regular season record in NBA history, Stephen Curry hopes he will be healthy enough to lead his team to a second straight NBA title.

In the meantime, the all-star is sharing his faith in the May/June issue of FCA Magazine. Editor Clay Meyer had interviewed Curry before, but got to visit with him again during the hoopla of this record-setting season.

“He still just came across as a really humble individual,” Meyer tells OneNewsNow. “In his own words, he said that his faith is his driving force and he’s doing all this not for his own glory, but for God’s glory.”

Meyer shares how excited FCA is to be featuring Curry because of the role model he serves in following the Christian faith.

“He’s the kind of person who we want to put on the cover of our magazine and be able to show kids and any sports fans – NBA fans – that the best player in the game is playing for something bigger than himself, and that is his Lord and Savior,” he says.

Curry is trying to lead the Warriors to another championship as he deals with nagging injuries.
