Warriors celebrated the seventh ring with their public

Golden State returned to the top after two forgettable seasons in the NBA

Tens of thousands of fans took to the streets of San Francisco, USA, on Monday to greet the Golden State Warriors, who celebrated their seventh NBA title with a tour of the city in open-top buses.

A blizzard of blue and gold confetti rippled along Market Street in downtown San Francisco as buses carrying Warriors players and team personnel made their way along the route.

The Warriors achieved their fourth crown in eight seasons last Thursday, defeating the Boston Celtics at home in the sixth game of the Finals, which they won 4-2.

The victory completed a triumphant return to the top just two years after they finished the 2019-2020 NBA season with the worst record (15 wins and 50 losses).

Star Stephen Curry, wearing a gold chain with his collection of NBA championship rings, led the festivities as his teammates doused fans with champagne in bright sunshine. The player celebrated with his Most Valuable Player trophy of the final, an award that he obtains for the first time in his career.

For his part, the coach of the champions, Steve Kerr, revealed that he received congratulatory messages ranging from fellow NBA coaches such as Gregg Popovich to former US President Barack Obama.

Curry and Paris 2024

The greatest figure of the Warriors is Stephen Curry and certainly what he has won with this organization makes him very happy, although, in his opinion, he still has to win a very important prize in his career: an Olympic medal, a metal that could be hung if finally he integrates the American team for the appointment of Paris 2024 in which he would have the fortune to be directed by his current coach Steve Kerr who said: “I think he should really focus on being part of the team. Olympic gold is the last thing he misses in his career.”
