Steph Curry celebrated his Golden State Warriors’ second championship win in three years with his Pastor John Gray Monday night.
The Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in a nail biting 129–120 Game 5 victory to become the NBA’s 2016–2017 season champions. Among the celebrations with family and friends, Warriors star point guard Curry celebrated with the associate pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, John Gray.
The pair revealed how close their relationship is after Gray shared an Instagram video of Curry saying he wanted to include the pastor in the celebrations. When Gray asked Curry how he was feeling, the All-Star player responded by saying, “blessed.”
Curry then described his friendship with Gray by saying the pastor is, “One of those great people in my life that keep me on the right path.”
“I’m going to enjoy this experience with everybody, including my Pastor, John Gray,” Curry added in the Instagram video.
Gray said he calls Curry his little brother and gushed about the basketball star in his caption of the Instagram video.
“Very proud of the whole team and proud of the man @stephencurry30 is. Loves God, loves his wife and kids and fights for his teammates,” he wrote. “@grayceeme and I salute this year’s champs! Congrats fellas!”
An amazing accomplishment. Honored to be here. @grayceeme and I have had the privilege to walk with a number of these men as they grow in Christ. Great basketball players, but I’m proud of them as men, as husbands and fathers. That’s the legacy that will last. Oh yeah, but they’re champs too! Congrats @stephencurry30, @andre and @jamesmcadoo, KD and the rest of the squad! Amazing accomplishment!
