Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry puffing a cigar inside Oracle Arena after winning his second NBA championship.
What better way to celebrate your victory as NBA champions than to light up a stogie and that’s just what Steph Curry did when his Golden State Warriors won their second title in three years.
The two time NBA champ was seen puffing on a cigar as he made his way from the locker room to the post-game interview and according to Curry this stogie has a special significance.
“The backstory is after Game 7 last year, I told one of my close friends to save this for a year from now to be able to enjoy the process and journey,” Curry told NBA TV after the Warriors’ Game 5 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. “I’ve been waiting a whole year to smoke this. So I’m going to enjoy every last bit of this butt.”
Last year left a bitter taste, as Golden State had a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals yet ended up losing a game 7 to Cleveland on their home floor.
The Warriors and Cav’s have played each other in the finals three years in a row. One major difference this year compared to last year has been the addition of Kevin Durant, who was named Finals MVP. There is no surprise to Golden State’s 16-1 run in this year’s playoffs and scoring at least 100 points in each game ( both an NBA record).
As Curry sat down to address the panel of media broadcasters, shooting guard Klay Thompson made a comment on his cigar. “That looks delicious by the way, Steph,” he said.
