NBA: Fourth title win for Golden State Warriors since 2015


Steph Curry scored 34 points and his Golden State Warriors recorded their 4th NBA title in 8 seasons Thursday night, defeating the Boston Celtics, 103-90, on the famous parquet flooring.The best-of-seven NBA Final series ended in 6 games, with the Warriors winning the final three after falling back, 2-1.

The San Francisco-based club has now won 7 NBA championships in franchise history, with the Larry O'Brien Trophy most just recently making its way to Northern California in 2015, 2017 and 2018 in this recent run.

Curry took home the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP Award, one of the few trophies that had been absent from his mantle.

" You understand how long the road is to return here because of how hard it is to win on this level," Curry stated on the post-game platform.

" Boston is a great team, every (playoff) team we played in the West is a great team," he stated. "But we found a way to just get it done."

The Warriors won the very first of these four titles seven years ago Thursday, on June 16, 2015, as fresh-faced stars Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, in addition to first-year coach Steve Kerr, broke a 40-year title drought for Golden State.Veteran backup Andre Iguodala was with the club for the 3 previous titles, prior to investing 2 years with the Miami Heat and after that returning to Golden State this season.

Kerr, a former colleague of all-time NBA great Michael Jordan, now has 9 championship rings, 5 as a player and 4 as a coach.

" This might be the most not likely of all," Kerr stated. "But I've simply been blessed. I hang around super stars. You hang around super stars advantages happen."

The franchise, which began as the Philadelphia Warriors, won the first Basketball Association of America-- a leader to the NBA-- title in 1947 before recording the crown again in 1956.

After the club moved to California-- however long before the "Splash Brothers," Curry and Thompson, arrived on the scene-- Golden State's just other title came in 1975.

Before Thursday night, the Warriors were tied with Jordan's Chicago Bulls as the team with the third most titles in NBA history. The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers (formerly from Minneapolis) each have 17 titles.

This most current Golden State title follows a string of disappointing, injury-marred seasons for the proud franchise.

Curry missed essentially all of the 2019-20 campaign with a broken hand, while Thompson was sidelined for the totality of 2019-20 and 2020-21 with career-threatening knee and Achilles injuries.

Golden State's latest crown is likewise the franchise's first since moving across the Bay Bridge from Oakland's Oracle Arena to the gleaming new Chase Center, 16 miles away in San Francisco.
