Steph expresses his feelings and sobs after the Warriors win the NBA title.
On the basketball field, Steph Curry is a cold-blooded murderer, but in the last seconds of the 2022 NBA Finals, he let emotions get the better of him.
Curry started to weep after the Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics 103-90 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night at TD Garden to clinch the title.
The Warriors had ascended back to the NBA summit after a two-year postseason exile, including a season in which they finished with the poorest record in the league, capturing their fourth championship in eight seasons.
Curry’s eyes welled up with tears.
Curry stood up, came to the bench, and embraced his brother-in-law, Damion Lee, as the whole team started to celebrate.
Curry has voted 2022 NBA Finals MVP moments afterward, collecting his first trophy following his fourth championship. He scored 34 points in the series-clinching game and averaged 31.2 points per game over the course of the six-game series.
Curry was not the only Warrior to cry after the game. Klay Thompson, who was out for 31 months between the middle of 2019 and January of this year, sobbed as soon as the game concluded.
Curry, Thompson, and everyone else in the Warriors organization has worked hard to get to this point. To do this, they lost blood, sweat, and tears.
Those sobs were well-deserved.
