Warriors come back on court, Curry thanks fans after loss (VIDEO)

May 17, 2013, 8:12 AM EDT

There was a great moment in Golden State after the Spurs had eliminated the Golden State Warriors from the playoffs.

As the game was winding down the fans had stayed and chanted — this is a passionate fan base long starved for much to cheer about. So the players came back out of the tunnel and thanked the fans. Jarrett Jack was high-fiving people, everyone was out there applauding, and Stephen Curry spoke.

The Warriors are a young team on the rise. That can be fragile, a lot of things can go wrong, but this was the best Warriors season in decades and it happened with a young team that should improve in the coming years. This was a touching scene.

    This kid is a leader. He gets it. And the Warriors are going to get better after this.

      Do you wake up in the morning and say to yourself “I feel like trolling today!”?

      • fanofevilempire - May 17, 2013 at 10:21 AM

        I wake up to idiots like you!

    • fanofevilempire - May 17, 2013 at 10:52 AM

      like Currys mom said,” the jumper has been paying my bills ” but you guys go ahead
      believe they play for the happiness of the fans.

        As long as he plays hard, and we enjoy watching him play, does it matter if he plays for passion or money?

    It’s refreshing to see players actually care about the fan base in a time when so many athletes just walk off the court after a loss and don’t give a damn about anyone but themselves.

    • fanofevilempire - May 17, 2013 at 10:08 AM

      what do you want them to do after losing, jump around and make funny faces,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
      do you even buy tickets to any games or do you just whine?

      You’re not literate, are you?

      • fanofevilempire - May 17, 2013 at 10:23 AM

        stop being a little bi-atch.

      you must live on a ranch, with Mr. Ed.

        Meds ran out again? You really should contact your pharmacy rather than spend the day insulting random people on the internet to you feel better about yourself.

    Were they not bitten repeatedly by the injury bug, this could have been the Timberwolves…

    Maybe next year…

    That was pure class, well done.

  5. spthegr8 - May 17, 2013 at 10:17 AM

    I just hope he can stay healthy, cuz he GETS IT!!! That’s Rare these days. A young guy who leads by example and says the right things!! Can’t say enough about Mark Jackson, he should have won COY!!! This team is only gonna get better!!

    • skinsfanwill - May 17, 2013 at 10:32 AM

      Mark Jackson was hands down COY. He did a great job with these guys. Basketball awards no longer have meaning. All-Star votes are terrible, Defensive player of the year is crap, COY is a toss up, but MVP is coming back to some form of accuracy. No way Nash has more MVP’s than Kobe and Shaq.

    ^^^^^^AGREED!!!!^^^^^

    Great moment for all involved.

  8. azarkhan - May 17, 2013 at 11:31 AM

    The Warrior and Thunder fans showed a lot of class after their teams lost.

  9. patfic15 - May 17, 2013 at 11:56 AM

    Don’t make the same mistake as OKC. Keep everybody together.

  10. patfic15 - May 17, 2013 at 11:57 AM

    Don’t make the same mistake as OKC. Keep everybody together. And most importantly….if Kendrick Perkins becomes available, don’t sign him!

  11. jaerba - May 17, 2013 at 12:53 PM

    I love this.

    There is something special about the fans in San Francisco that humbles players. The Warriors, Giants and 49ers seem to attract a fan base that sticks around till the end of the games.

    Very proud of our GSW this year. We struggled for so many years so to see something special like this, it’s amazing. We know we can be better than this next year with all of our young players still improving and hopefully keeping the injuries to a minimum. That means we really have to watch Curry’s and Bogut’s minutes.
    GSW fans love our team and you can see these bunch of players and coaches loves their fan base.
    In Oakland, our fans have that “Warriors….Warriors….Warriors” chant. The same loyal chants we have next door to our “Raiders….Raiders…Raiders”
    Hardcore baby!
