“I’m so proud of our team,” said an emotional Curry after winning the NBA again.
“At the start of the season, no one thought we would be here except for everyone on this pitch.”
This victory is an incredible turnaround for the Warriors
having missed the playoffs for the last two seasons due to multiple injuries.
They beat the Boston Celtics after first ending the journey of the Denver Nuggets, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks, in their bid to reclaim the Larry O’Brien trophy.
“We were a long way from that,” Curry said.
“We’ve hit rock bottom due to injuries and a long road ahead of us and we’re trying to fill in the right parts and the right people. You can never take this for granted because you never know when you’ll be back here,” he explained.
This is the seventh NBA title total the Warriors were founded in Philadelphia in 1946 as one of the early members of the United States Basketball Association.
The Warriors won their first NBA title in the 1946-1947 season. (Ant/OL-1)
