Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors made history as they became the NBA champions for the 4th time in the last seven years after defeating the Boston Celtics in the 2022 NBA Finals.
It was certainly a great story for the Warriors, who found themselves probably at their lowest point in recent times in 2019-20, finishing with the worst record in the league, to make a one-of-a-kind comeback led by their superstar Stephen Curry.
While the Dubs did see many players like Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins step up alongside the ever-present duo of Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, it was really Curry who was the talisman for the Warriors last season.
Stephen Curry played great in the NBA Finals against one of the best defensive teams in the league, and his season can be summed up with multiple iconic pictures. In a viral post, a fan shared some of the coldest pictures featuring Curry.
These are easily some of the most ice-cold pictures from the 2021-22 season. While Steph's first picture was him pointing towards his ring finger in Game 6 of the Finals, his second one was against the Mavericks in the playoffs, where he showed his now-viral night-night celebration.
The other two pictures in the tweet are that of Steph hitting a no-look three-pointer in the Cleveland All-Star game and another no-look against the Bulls. Curry certainly had his fair share of highlight-worthy last season, and given how his campaign went, it won't be a surprise if the trend continues in 2022/23.
As far as the Warriors are concerned, they have their championship core of Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green all locked down to contracts, and even their two new pivotal players in, Poole and Wiggins are here to stay. But the challenge for the Finals MVP Curry and the Warriors might be tougher this season.
With Western Conference giants like the Los Angeles Clippers likely back in full health and the Lakers also looking to add some stars to their loaded core, the Dubs will have to overcome bigger challenges if they want to repeat. Can Stephen Curry lead the Golden State Warriors to a successive championship next season?
