Let it henceforth be known, the NBA Finals have been renamed the Warriors Invitational.
At least that’s what the Dubs are saying.
Golden State captured its fourth title in eight years on Thursday night in Boston. The Warriors have made it to the Finals six straight seasons, so long as Klay Thompson is playing. Upon landing with his two new trophies, including the Finals MVP, Steph Curry was in a great mood with reporters.
“Fantastic,” Curry said. “We’re champs again. It’s nice to bring Ol’ Larry back home where he belongs. Like Draymond said, it’s the Warriors Invitational. We back. This is pretty special for sure.”
Curry, of course, was making reference to Draymond’s statement at midcourt of the TD Garden during the trophy ceremony:
Other teams around the Western Conference probably didn’t like it, but that’s fine with Green. The Warriors own the West until further notice.
Like his coach Steve Kerr, who told reporters he was hungover, Curry sounded ready to get some much-needed rest over the weekend.
“To get the job done, it’s an emotional roller coaster,” Curry said. “All the work that goes into it. The whole team’s excited. Everybody’s exhausted, though. We’re ready to get some rest and ready for the parade on Monday.”
