Sports Illustrated's Fashionable 50: Iguodala dips, Durant gets award

The Warriors continue to get recognized.

On Monday, Sports Illustrated unveiled its second annual Fashionable 50 list and two Warriors made the cut.

Andre Iguodala -- who checked in at No. 8 in the inaugural edition -- fell one spot to No. 9 this year.

The 2015 NBA Finals MVP included the following quote:

"What are you most comfortable in? That’s what’s most important. In everything you do, you represent yourself, your family and your brand. This is the business that we’re in and everyone’s watching. It was instilled in me from a young age. You have school clothes, you have church clothes, you have play clothes. It was laid out like that the way I grew up. So whatever perception you want people to have of you, you gotta show that.”

Kevin Durant received the "No Muss, No Fuss" Award.

The following caption was included:

"He finally became an NBA champion this season, but Durant has been winning the style game since his years with OKC. His looks are comfortable, simple and efficient, and he chooses pieces that balance his 6'9" frame."

Durant is closer to 6'11" without shoes on...

The two aren't exactly on speaking terms, yet.

Speaking of players who used to wear the same jersey...

Durant also congratulated James Harden, who finished runner-up to Westbrook.

"Shoutout my boy James Harden. For 5 years now he's taken his game to the next level, he will be an MVP one day, he's an MVP now, he's made so many people proud. I know this first hand, recognize what he has done for the game! "

Westbrook received 69 of the 101 first-place votes, while Harden finished with 22.

Durant, who may have finished in the Top 5 had he not injured his knee on Feb. 28, garnered just two fifth-place votes.

A detailed look at Steph Curry's 2016-17 MVP votes

Steph Curry won the MVP in 2015.

Last year, he became the first unanimous MVP in NBA history.

This year -- he finished in sixth place.

Curry did not receive a single first-place or second-place vote.

He did wind up with three third-place votes. They came from:

1) Lisa Shen Yang of Tencent
2) Richard Walker of Gaston Gazette
3) Royce Young of ESPN

He earned one fourth-place vote, from Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report.

Curry finished in sixth because he racked up 34 fifth-place votes.

Over the course of the season, it became clear that the Top 4 MVP candidates were Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and LeBron James (they finished in that order).

In the end, Isaiah Thomas bested Curry for fifth-place by garnering four third-place votes, eight fourth-place votes and 37 fifth-place votes.

During the regular season, Curry averaged 25.3 points, 6.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game, while shooting just under 47 percent from the field and over 41 percent from deep.

In the playoffs, he registered 28.1 points, 6.7 assists, 6.2 rebounds and 2.0 steals, while shooting over 48 percent from the field and just under 42 percent from distance.

Kevin Durant -- who was named NBA Finals MVP -- ended up with just two fifth-place votes.
