For Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala, it’s a fourth championship. The first three rings came in 2015, 2017 and 2018, when Golden State was dynastic and made five consecutive trips to the finals.

Coach Steve Kerr said that all the titles are unique and special. This one may have been the oddest. … We had a fantastic group. It takes team effort to accomplish anything. “

We had a great group. The Warriors came back this season with Thompson returning at the halfway point.

Also back on top. Champions, again, denying the storied Celtics what would have been their record 18th championship, one that would have meant Boston breaking a tie with the Los Angeles Lakers for the most in league history.

CBSSports.com’s Brad Bodkin sang Cury’s praises, noting that Curry’s fourth ring puts him in even rarer historical air.

“Curry has four, one more than Larry Bird or Dwyane Wade and one less than Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson,” he wrote. … Curry has always been the eye of this Warriors storm that has torn through the NBA over these last eight years. Curry has been a champion in every championship race. He’s not done yet. “

Minutes after the game, the Warriors announced that their first victory parade in San Francisco would be held Monday, CBS San Francisco said. The team held its previous three parades in Oakland, which the Warriors called home from 1971 to 2019.

The Warriors’ road back

This tale for the Warriors ended much differently than what their most recent finals appearance against Toronto did in 2019, one that saw Kevin Durant tear his Achilles tendon in Game 5 and then Thompson tear his ACL in what became the Raptors’ title-clincher in Game 6. The consequences of the loss were exacerbated when Durant decided to quit that summer as a free agent to play for the Brooklyn Nets, and Thompson injured his Achilles while rehabbing his knee injury.

Thompson stated that it all worked out. It was hard work, and there were many tears. It was possible, you just didn’t know it. But to actually see it is amazing. … It’s crazy.”

This forced a Golden State team to rebuild, which became a reload. Two years of NBA hiatus allowed the Warriors to rebuild their team, adding an ex-No. Andrew Wiggins was the 1st draft pick. He excelled in his finals and was joined by Jordan Poole, a rising star.

Curry stated that this one will be different because of the three-year history and what they were like. Curry said that injuries, changing the guard and rosters have all contributed to the injury epidemic. We now have four championships. Dray, Klay, and Andre.

Curry said, in reference to the MVP trophy. “It’s special. It was a great experience for everyone involved. “

It all worked.

Kerr has won five championships as a player, but this is his ninth overall. Along with Red Auerbach and John Kundla as well as Pat Riley, he’s now the sixth coach to win four titles.

It was the third consecutive season where things were affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic, and while things were closer to normal, pictures and video of the championship celebration will serve as a forever reminder that the virus was still an issue.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was unable to attend the game due to his continued participation in safety and health protocols for the virus. Mark Tatum, deputy commissioner of the NBA presented the Larry O’Brien Trophy (a new golden souvenir that was given to NBA champions) to the Warriors instead.
