Warriors' Steph Curry wins 2023 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was named the winner of the 2022-23 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award, the franchise announced Thursday.

The award is given out annually by the Professional Basketball Writers Association and “honors a player, coach, or athletic trainer who shows outstanding service and dedication to the community.”

“Few athletes have as great a reach or as powerful a platform as Steph Curry, and he has used it to the fullest to benefit others,” PBWA President Howard Beck said in a statement. “The members of the Professional Basketball Writers Association salute him and the other nominees for their exemplary work.”

Los Angeles Lakers forward Wenyen Gabriel, Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George and Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams were also finalists for the award.

Curry is the first member of the Warriors to win the honor, which has been given out by the PBWA annually since 1974—aside from the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
