All through these NBA Finals, Steph Curry has been more openly emotional than usual, getting into it with Boston fans and doing audaciously early celebrations.

Those emotions completely took over on Thursday night as his Warriors put away the Celtics late in a 103-90 win that clinched their fourth NBA title since 2015 and their first since 2018. 

After coach Steve Kerr pulled the Golden State starters with the win — and the title — assured, Curry began crying on the baseline, embracing his father Dell, who had a victory cigar at the ready. When time expired, the tears really started to flow, with Curry weeping through his ABC interview with Lisa Salters.


“At the beginning of the season, nobody thought we’d be here, except for everyone on this court,” Curry said. “It’s surreal. Very surreal. We were so far away from it… We hit rock bottom with injuries…. never take this for granted because you never know when you’ll get back here.”

After a brutal Game 5, Curry snapped back to form in Game 6, exploding for 34 points in 40 minutes, shooting 12-for-21 from the field. He was honored with his first ever Finals MVP for his efforts, hopefully putting one of the most tiresome narratives in the sport to rest.
