Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry attained the NBA’s holy grail on Thursday, winning his fourth NBA championship with a dominating 103-90 win over the Celtics in Boston.

And he dutifully helped bring the tired metaphor home by drinking from an actual golden chalice during the locker room celebration. Video from inside the Warriors locker room showed Curry with his Finals MVP trophy in one hand and his celebratory gold chalice in the other, getting doused in champagne as he appropriately downed his cup.


An SFGATE review of locker room footage reveals the goblet most likely came from a Moet Chandon champagne tub and wasn’t the only one – several are seen floating in the tub in a Moses Moody Instagram Live video and lined up in a party clip NBA package. They are also later seen strewn across the floor in an NBA Instagram clip.

Bob Myers was later Point drink from barefoot shorts and a t-shirt.

The whole scene was deserved for the Warriors’ own Indiana Jones. Curry beat a seemingly unbeatable Celtics defense, picking up 31.2 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists per game in the Finals. He became just the 4th player to battle his way to a 30-5-5 average multiple times in the Finals, joining Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Jerry West. And he celebrated carrying the Warriors to their fourth title in eight seasons Thursday early and often, with a third-quarter taunt, tears before the final buzzer even sounded and a locker room party for the ages.
