Steph Curry and the Warriors receive a hero’s welcome as they arrive at San Francisco International Airport – Klay Thompson warns NBA rivals that their “scary” squad wants more after latest Finals success.

The Golden State Warriors emerged victorious over the Boston Celtics in Game 6, clinching their fourth championship in the last eight years. Despite their past successes, the team remains hungry for more. Led by the impressive performance of Draymond Green, the squad arrived back in San Francisco to adoring fans. Klay Thompson expressed his belief that the Warriors’ “scary” team can win it all again next season. Stephen Curry, wearing a yellow hoodie and championship snapback, proudly carried off the NBA Finals MVP trophy as the team landed at the airport. Fans gathered to greet Coach Steve Kerr and his players, celebrating their latest championship win. With a cigar resting between his lips, Davidon college graduate Curry put his arms out wide, relishing the moment.

When asked about the possibility of Golden State Warriors winning their fifth championship in nine years, despite being underdogs to repeat next year, Green struggled to see why they couldn’t pull it off. “It still has not been proven that when we’re whole, that anybody can stop it,” Green said. The Warriors won back-to-back titles in 2017 and 2018 with an MVP-level Kevin Durant leading the charge. However, Durant, along with Klay Thompson, suffered season-ending injuries in the 2019 Finals against the Toronto Raptors, and this team hasn’t been fully healthy until this season, which has seen key young players such as Jordan Poole, Gary Payton II, and Otto Porter Jr. emerge.

Coach Steve Kerr hailed a 'beautiful' night celebrating their fourth title in the last eight years

Coach Steve Kerr celebrated a “beautiful” night after winning their fourth title in the last eight years. During an appearance on Green’s podcast, The Draymond Green Show, Thompson said, “And we ain’t done. That’s the beautiful thing about it. We got these young bucks behind us and we got the same squad coming back? That’s scary for the NBA.” Green agreed, saying “It is very scary.” Kerr, who now has nine championship rings as a player and four as a coach, almost lost his voice upon his return to San Francisco. “We had a great night last night, we had an incredible night, a late night, just celebrating with the team and their families. Just a beautiful night,” he said. “This one was the most unlikely championship of the four that we have had.”
