Stephen Curry and the Warriors landed in the Bay Area Wednesday afternoon, receiving a rockstar welcome. A Delta charter flight from Cleveland touched down at Oakland International Airport around 3:09 p.m.
Curry was one of the first ones to exit the aircraft, trophy in hand, and performed a short victory dance as he walked across the tarmac toward a throng of fans and journalists. Chants of "MVP, MVP" rang though the air, as he stopped to chat with reporters briefly.
"The guys didn't get any sleep," Curry said, adding: "Now we get to celebrate for real."
Fans were spotted touching Andre Iguodala's MVP trophy, excited to be a part of history. Coach Steve Kerr was one of the last to come out, but he didn't stop to talk to media.
Curry posted a picture of himself holding the Larry O'Brien trophy on the flight back Wednesday morning: "Back to the Bay with this bad boy!!! Can't tell yall how proud I am of everyone on this team. No better feeling than to celebrate with your brothers and realize what we have accomplished together. This is for the Bay!"https://instagram.com/p/4CZ_RflQBF
The Warriors 40-year NBA championship drought finally ended Tuesday when they beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 to win the 2015 NBA Finals. Fans are already planning for the championship parade on Friday.
Iguadola tweeted out a picture of himself sleeping on the plane with his MVP trophy, saying: "andre1st ever #WCW #BaeLookGoodInMyArms"https://instagram.com/p/4CaTpjzfYa
But the tweet that seems to be getting rhe most attention came from Warriors forward Harrison Barnes. Barnes tweeted out a video of the team singing their favorite song— O.T. Genasis' "I'm In Love With the Coco."
