- Advertisment -

Boston – Steph Curry Choose the moment.

The 28-foot 3-pointer from the digitally imposed NBA Finals logo gave the Warriors a 22-point lead in the third quarter.

The layup and Celtics run by him by Al Horford saw the audience for a long time.

A long embrace with his father and former NBA player Del Curry in the final seconds of Game 6 between Boston and Golden State.

Unofficially, it was Steph Curry Appreciation Night, and each basket that gave him two points for his last two free throws gave him 34 points – and the six 3-pointers in the middle – crowned.

The Warriors’ fourth championship in eight seasons after beating Boston 103-90 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

Curry averaged 31.2 points in the first finals MVP, six rebounds, five assists and two steals and shot 48.2% off the field and 43.7% on 3-pointers.

“Steph, I think he’s not today – even today – he’s settled down to be the best point guard in his career,” said longtime Warriors teammate Andrew Igudala.

Curry holds his NBA Finals MVP trophy.

When Igudala won the controversial ballot in 2015 and won the Kevin Durant Award in 2017 and 2018, Curry won the 2022 Finals MVP Handdown.

This time there is no doubt. The player who revolutionized basketball with his shot wiped out the best defense in the league with an outrageous offense

Curry has 34 points, seven assists and seven rebounds in Game 6.

“It’s been a year and six days since I started the process of preparing for this season,” Curry said. “It simply came to our notice then. Not sure how that happens. Do not know what the weather will be like. Imagine how emotions are going to be, but it will be different.

He was unanimously elected from the Finals MVP voters. And this is not a pity vote or the Finals MVP Lifetime Achievement Award. He achieved this feat in this series.

“So I’m happy for everyone, but I’m thrilled for Steff. For me, it’s his crown that has already been an amazing career, ”said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

Curry likes to talk about the team rather than his personal award. “It’s special,” he said. “The confidence and confidence in the locker room that sprays champagne around the locker room and the work that everyone does, everyone is important in that process. So I’m proud of everyone.

Kerr compared Curry to Hall of Famer and former San Antonio Spurs great Tim Duncan.

“Completely different players,” Kerr said. “But the humanitarian perspective, the talent perspective, the humility, the confidence, this amazing combination makes everyone want to win for him. And I’m clearly thrilled with everyone in that room, and I think a lot of people have a big hand in this, but the thing with Steff is that he Without it, I think nothing would have happened.

And whether or not it is necessary to have the Finals MVP on his resume for Curry’s legacy, he has it now and that storyline is obsolete. Curry buried it with his shooting and scoring.

“When you see a guy like Steph Curry, it’s amazing to have the season and career he has. And to stamp it out with the Finals MVP, ”said Warriors forward Drymond Green. “I know he does not care, and in the sense of ‘oh, his inheritance will not be so much unless he gets it.’ Like, it’s the worst.

“Still Steph Curry, still great all the time. But to add it to your resume as a competitor, you need it. To him, well deserved. It’s been a long time. But he left no doubt, left no doubt and he took us and we are champions here.

Curry scored at least 30 points in four games, including the series-high 43 points in Game 4, the second highest scoring output of his finals career. His 43-point, 10-rebound performance made him the fifth guard in the history of the Finals to record at least 40 points and 10 rebounds and the only second point guard to do so.

Curry needed to score against the best defense in the league: 34 points in Game 1, 29 in Game 2, 31 in Game 3 and 43 in Game 4.

Curry, 34, is the face of the franchise – and may be the rare superstar to spend his entire career with a single team in today’s NBA.

“A very important part of the work we do here from day one is related to a specific culture,” Warriors owner Joe Locob told USA Today Sports at the start of the finals. “That culture is based on some of the experiences I have had (co-owner) Peter Guber in the business for many years. It translates to the basketball business. That culture revolves around a certain type of people who are committed, really good people in your organization, they really train very hard They do not give up gas on their feet and care for the community, where many aspects of culture are important.

“Steph is a man of the ultimate culture. We’re figured that out in advance. We’re very lucky.”
