Monday was a commemoration for the NBA Champions.
In fact, since capturing their fourth NBA title in eight years, the Golden State Warriors have been celebrating nonstop Thursday night. However, Monday afternoon saw the first official ceremony for the team at Bay.
Thousands turned out to pay their respects to the newly crowned champions, and the result was an hour-long montage of champagne showers, figurative flower fans and celebrations.
Here are the top moments from Golden State’s championship save.
Dubs Nation has never been shy about sharing their feelings with the neighboring basketball landscape, and in recognition of the team’s historic run, one particular fan brought out their pet goat as a symbolic nod to the team’s greatness. The Goat’s Robe: A royal blue Stephen Curry jersey.
Stephen Curry was wide awake for the occasion, but the amount of sleep he’s accumulated over the past few hours is likely minimal.
Nonetheless, Curry’s Energy was at 10 throughout the day, and he broke out his signature “Night Night” celebration — the same one he used in every closeout game during GS’s playoff run — at the request of fans.
Klay Thompson is usually as safe a player as the NBA has to offer. But as the Surgeon General warns, a few alcoholic beverages will impair your motor skills, and that’s what appears to have happened to Thompson when he dropped one of his prized championship rings along the route.
Thompson later lost his footing and fell over an unsuspecting bystander. Fortunately, the fan smiled after the fall.
No problem: only Jordan Poole is attending a party that bears his name.
Poole wasn’t the only one to shower fans with Championship shivers. Gary Payton II had his own fun with a squirt gun as he ventured onto one of the team buses.
This moment couldn’t be more special for Juan Toscano-Anderson, who was still vying for a spot on the NBA roster a year ago and is now the first player of Mexican descent to win a title.
The more the better
Steve Kerr has won 33% of the last 27 NBA titles (that’s not a typo). And yet his championship fever is like that of a first-time winner.
Draymond is Draymond
As usual, Draymond Green had a few choice words for the public.
And the first-time Finals MVP was probably received the warmest of all.
