In honor of their 2017-18 NBA championship, players, coaches and owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber received their rings from NBA commissioner Adam Silver. The players' rings came down on specialized wires from the top of Oracle Arena as a sellout crowd roared its approval.
The top of each ring is reversible. Seventy-four sapphires on the "blue" side represent the number of wins (regular season and playoff) by the Warriors last season. On the "white" side, 74 diamonds represent the win total.
The Warriors' mantra, "Strength in Numbers," is revealed when the ring's top is twisted off.
"It's special," Curry said after the game. "I remember looking up, there was only Philadelphia Warriors banners and the '74-'75 team. To come into Oracle every night and in our practice facility and look on the wall up in the rafters and see three championship banners we've brought back to the Bay, that's amazing. Kind of reminisce on the journey in those little moments. Obviously, we're still trying to go for more so it's really hard in terms of putting it all into perspective, but nights like tonight are where you really kind of sit back and feel really proud about what we've accomplished."
I'm sure he was more than happy to receive the reversible ring, even though he called Ring night the weirdest night of the season.
I'll take that kind of weird any day of the week.
