Steph Curry was vindicated in his pursuit for another NBA championship.
A year after a collapse that saw Golden State squander a 3-1 series lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors closed it out on Monday night.
That’s when Steph took his victory puff. He anticipated smoking his cigar 12 months earlier. After the Warriors blew the series and the Cavs became champs, he decided he’d wait for his next opportunity.
It finally came on Monday night.

Steph might not have been the MVP of this year’s Finals, but it doesn’t seem like that is bothering him too much right now.
Celebration appears as if it is in full swing in the Golden State. But it wasn’t enough that he enjoy sweet victory in the form of a well-rolled cigar. He needed it to take a victory lap.
While teammate Klay Thompson was doing an interview after winning the championship, Curry took a few nice puffs of camera.

There isn’t much question who was the most dominant team in the NBA this year. The Warriors managed to fit four of the best players in the NBA on the same roster. It paid dividends, and they ran right through everybody they played this season.
They’ll enjoy their championship and look for another in the 2017-18 season.
