After losing Game 6 of the NBA Finals earlier this month, Stephen Curry says he invited the entire Warriors team over to his house to “celebrate” their journey.
While speaking to Complex, Curry said the “sting” of losing the Finals is “pretty much done by now,” and the team gathered at Curry’s house the night after the loss to reminisce about the season.
“The night after we lost Game 6, we had the entire team at the house and we were drinking some wine and having some fun, talking about the crazy year that we had and it was nothing like somber or down about any of it,” he said.
The Warriors’ season was full of highs (the playoff series against the Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers, to name a few) and lows (Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson’s injuries, as well as the rampant Durant free agency speculation), and Curry said the team appreciates the journey more than anything.
“It was more like a celebration of just how special this journey has been and knowing that it’s not over yet so I think, in turn, having people that support you, having your family and you getting to share them, it definitely helps keep things into perspective and not make it more tough to lose than it already is,” Curry said.
The point guard also discussed how closely he’ll be following the start of free agency next week when his teammates Thompson and Durant hit the open market.
“Nothing should surprise anybody anymore in terms of how crazy free agency gets and the reaction and the storylines over the course of summer are sometimes even bigger than during the season just because how big the NBA is,” he said. “I’ll be tuning in and obviously [Anthony Davis] already being traded it’s going to be a wild summer like it always is.”
