Last night the NBA kicked off the beginning of the 2015-2016 season with a number of highly anticipated games around the league. The two most enticing opening night games featured last years Finals participants; the Cleveland Cavaliers and the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
Product of Society was on hand to witness the raising of the 2014-2015 NBA Championship banner as well as the ring ceremony that preceded the Warriors’ season opener against Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans.
Check out some fun facts that the Warriors organization released regarding the specifics of their new championship bling below:
In addition to an unusual electricity and buzz from the great fans of #DubNation surrounding the championship night activities, an unbelievable cast of NBA legends, celebrities and public figures were on hand to celebrate the Warriors first championship in over 3 decades.
From the likes of: Joe Montana, (NBA Commissioner) Adam Silver, (Metallica lead drummer) Lars Ulrich, Bill Walton, Chris Webber and the NBA logo himself Jerry West, Oracle arena resembled a scene out of a movie and the play of Steph Curry fit the bill as the film’s (and possibly the industry’s) biggest star.
Steph finished the game with 40 points (24 of which came in the first quarter) on 14-26 shooting and 5-12 from beyond the 3pt line. The reigning MVP showed no signs of cooling off after breaking the single season record for 3 pointers made between he and his fellow splash brother, Klay Thompson.
All in all we would recommend getting out to Oracle Arena to check out an atmosphere and in game experienced that is second to none throughout the NBA and rivals any home court/field advantage in all of professional sports.
Take a look at some of the unique visuals we captured while soaking it all in last night and let us know what you think about the Warriors chance to repeat this coming season.
