Stephen Curry collected his fourth NBA ring after leading the Golden State Warriors to a 103-90 Game 6 victory over the Boston Celtics.
It was an emotional night for Curry who, after scoring 34 points, was named the 2022 Finals MVP.
But a clearly emotional Curry was more focused on the team, including those in the backroom, than personal awards.
Asked about MVP afterwards he replied: “Forget that! We’re champs! Why’d you start with that question? We got four championships!”
Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green now each have four rings, but getting that fourth one was quite the journey…
Since 2019, the Warriors have been dealing with injuries and trades that saw them in a playoff drought…
But once the trio got back together, the Warriors were unstoppable yet again. So this meant a lot.
With Curry’s first Finals MVP award, he has a complete collection of accolades from All-Star MVP, two-time NBA MVP.
Curry has secured his position among the all-time NBA greats, averaging 31.2 points per game, almost 10 more than next best, Jayson Tatum (21.5).
His 31 three-pointers were comfortably the most by any player in the series and he averaged five assists per game.
“It’s special, man. It’s special,” said Curry. “Just all the work that went into it, all the faith and belief... I’m just proud of everybody.”
