4:48 pm
group, and i'm looking forward to tomorrow. we got a parade celebration, so should be pretty special. >> you're right. there are only a handful of teams that have won three championships or more and you guys are definitely -- your team looks great. you guys still have the opportunity to go out there next season and the one after that to win some more to join teams like the celtics, lakers, spurs, and warriors, your teams right there, the only teams that have won more than three championships so congratulations on joining that elite group, my friend. >> thank you very much. >> so, steph, i know you said you're looking forward to the parade tomorrow which is also -- always a good time. but what did you do immediately to celebrate? third one in four years. so how does steph curry celebrate an nba title? >> we did a lot of stuff in cleveland before we got out of there. we -- i had a big old bowl of popcorn. that was probably the best part of the night, right after the game. you got to watch your diet while you go through the playoffs so right when the game's over, i
4:49 pm
had a little junk food so that's probably the best thing. >> that's good. >> steph, obviously, you swept the cavs this time. third time's the charm. did it make the win that much sweeter that you all did it all in a row like that? >> yeah. something we hadn't done before. we've won in five sweep and get the job done knowing all we've been through with injuries and the ups and downs of the season, to get to the finals, win four in a row and get to the trophy pretty quick, that was a special accomplishment, something we hadn't experienced before. >> and after the game, you told your mom, this was legacy. >> legacy. >> how important is your legacy and when your career is over, what do you want that to be? >> i mean, to kind of just sit back and think about all the things i've been able to accomplish and been blessed to accomplish since i've been in the league. it's been an amazing journey, and i think for us, we're just
4:50 pm
kind of trying to live in the moment as best we can. like mike said, we have a pretty cool opportunity to come back next year, even stronger, even better, and go after another one. we'll get to that eventually. right now, we're just going to celebrate and enjoy what we've been able to do. >> and you've been enjoying it and your family's been enjoying it. we've watched your kids grow up over the course of your nba career. so what did they have to think about this latest title that you've won? >> oh, they're excited. they're getting old enough to really appreciate kind of, you know, watching me on the tv and celebrating with me, so every opportunity i have to, you know, share this with them, i'm going to do that, and just, you know, one day, they'll look back and hopefully appreciate the opportunity they had to kind of be a part of championships and seeing how happy we were as a family, as a team, and as an organization, i think it's a pretty special opportunity. >> yes, it is.
4:51 pm

4:52 pm
to support me as we won another championship, especially in her third trimester of her third pregnancy, that means a lot and shows how important we are to each other. >> wow. >> the family photos are so cute. >> they are adorable. >> i'm sure both girls will be there along with ayesha and steph tomorrow. he said the highlight for him was the popcorn afterwards. nick young came off the team plane without a shirt. the question tomorrow for the parade is, what will nick be wearing, if anything, during the parade? he could go full jr smith like last year in cleveland. speaking of the warriors, finals mvp kevin durant is going to be on jimmy kimmel live tonight. its starts right after abc7 news at 11:00 and you can catch tomorrow's championship parade right here on abc7. our live coverage starts at 10:00 a.m. you can get information about transportation, street closures, and championship parade do's and don't's all at abc7news.com.
