Stephen Curry knows what it’s like to reach the mountaintop.
In fact, he entered this season with three NBA titles to his name as a member of the Golden State Warriors.
He can now make that four after taking home a Game 6 victory over the Boston Celtics to clinch yet another title.
One would think this title would feel routine for a star like Curry.
But this one is different and the raw emotion following the win showed by the superstar proves just how special number four is to him.

Curry was seen crying in the final moments of the game before he became a champion once again.
Curry Faced A Tough Journey For No. 4
The Warriors were humming along just a few years ago.
They made five consecutive NBA Finals and took home three trophies.
Then adversity struck in the form of injuries.
That meant only 15 wins in 2019-20 and 39 in 2020-21.
Yet the front office kept the faith, and the core, and it resulted in an emotional title this year.
Anyone who wants to place asterisks on any of the prior three titles cannot do that for the fourth.
As for Curry, he carried the team all year and finally took home a Finals MVP award.
That was the last honor eluding him and he had to know it was coming as soon as the final buzzer sounded.
Hence all the emotion at the realization of just how much he accomplished after a nightmare stretch the past couple of seasons.
