The Warriors enjoyed their championship parade yesterday, and Steph Curry’s ‘back again’ and ‘night night’ T-shirts went down a storm.
The Golden State Warriors are once again champions of the NBA after beating the Boston Celtics 4-2 in the NBA Finals. It is the Warriors’ fourth title in eight years, officially marking them as one of the NBA’s all-time great dynasties.
It was also a historic series for Steph Curry, who claimed his first Finals MVP. The mercurial Dubs point guard had a season for the ages, capturing the All-Star Game MVP, Western Conference Finals MVP, and Finals MVP, as well as breaking the all-time three-point record.
On Monday (21 June), the Warriors had their championship parade in downtown San Francisco. Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Steph Curry and the rest of the Warriors players and coaching staff could be seen revelling in the jubilant celebrations.
Steph Curry’s ‘night night’ T-shirt at Warriors parade
Steph Curry’s ‘night night’ gesture became an iconic celebration throughout the playoffs. Curry often made the gesture after delivering a dagger three, signalling to the likes of the Denver Nuggets, Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and Boston Celtics that he had put them to bed.
In Curry’s own words: “It’s the final signal for a job well-done that day.”
Curry’s now signature celebration was a recurring theme throughout the Warriors’ championship parade. Both Steph and Steve Kerr rocked the ‘night night’ T-shirt yesterday:
Steph also had a mic drop moment after dropping the ‘night night’ gesture.
During the parade, Steph caught up with special NBC Sports Bay Area correspondent Mistah F.A.B for an interview. Curry was obviously on a high and, as the crowd chanted ‘MVP’, he performed a perfect night night before mic dropping and leaving the interview:
Expect to see more of the Steph Curry ‘night night’ T-shirts. A number of them are currently selling on Etsy and various other e-commerce websites.
Steph Curry’s ‘back again’ T-shirt features cool detail
Despite the wild antics yesterday, it appears Steph still had time to change his outfit. During the championship parade, Steph Curry also rocked a ‘back again’ T-shirt.
The phrase appeared on a simple black shirt in white, bold lettering, but there was a cool detail some fans picked up on.
The letter ‘n’ at the end of ‘again’ was stylised as ‘IV’. IV is the Roman numeral for the number four – representing the number of championships Steph has now won:
Steph’s ‘Ayesha Curry Can Cook’ T-shirt
Steph has been quite the connoisseur of the T-shirt in recent weeks. After Game 5 vs the Boston Celtics, Steph sported a shirt that read “Ayesha Curry Can Cook” during his post-game press conference:
The shirt was in response to a Boston bar that earlier in the series wrote “Ayesha Curry Can’t Cook” on a sign outside its front door.
Ayesha Curry is the author of multiple cookbooks and has her own show, Ayesha’s Home Kitchen, which airs on Food Network.
