For the second straight year the National Basketball Association (NBA) champs are visiting Las Vegas as part of their championship celebration.
Last year, the newly crowned Cleveland Cavaliers stopped for a few hours in Las Vegas to party on the way home to Northeast Ohio after winning the title in Oakland.
Now, numerous Golden State Warriors stars, fresh from dethroning the Cavaliers earlier this week, are spending the weekend in Las Vegas. After the Warriors celebrated their second NBA championship in three years with a parade in Oakland, team owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber boarded one of MGM Resorts' private jets along with Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala and other Golden State players and flew to Las Vegas.
The Warriors will be in Las Vegas through the weekend, and are expected to attend Andre Ward's light heavyweight championship fight against Sergey Kovalev on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
The team’s three point shooting savant Stephen Curry went to Hollywood Thursday night, but may join his teammates for the weekend.
