Curry calls Ring Night 'weirdest night of the year'
6:39 PM ET
OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors are ready to celebrate yet another Ring Night on Tuesday as they open up the regular season against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but All-Star guard Stephen Curry acknowledges that the ring celebration is unlike anything the team does all season.
“The ring ceremony is honestly the weirdest night of the year,” Curry said recently. “You’re celebrating something that happened four months ago and then you got to appreciate the moment, see the banner fall, feel the energy from the crowd, then you got to put the rings back, go warm up for two and a half minutes and then play an NBA basketball game where the other team is just salivating, waiting to get ahold of you after seeing the whole ring ceremony. So it’s our third time going through it, I think we’re 1-1 the last two, but it’s just a weird night all the way around. A lot of celebration, but for us we can’t really sit and just relax after you get the ring like we did something because that’s old news by that point. So we’ll be ready to go.”
Warriors teammate Klay Thompson echoed
