- Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors recently won their fourth NBA title.
- Following the title-clinching Game 6 victory, Curry received a call from his gold buddy Barack Obama.
- Obama was the 44th President of the United States from 2008 to 2016.
Steph Curry is not only one of the greatest NBA players of all time, but he’s apparently also one of the most connected as the 34-year-old sharpshooter received a phone call from none other than former United States President Barack Obama following the Golden States Warriors’ most recent NBA title win. Curry and Barry O. have established a friendship over the years as golf buddies.
As Curry was still standing on the court following the Dubs’ 103-90 Game 6 victory to clinch their fourth NBA title in eight seasons (yes, Bill Simmons, that’s absolutely a dynasty), he hopped on the phone with the 44th President of the United States, which allowed nearby cameras to at least pick-up Curry’s part of the conversation.

“Thank you so much, man. You know, from the last time I saw you, just how far away this actually felt. Man, this was special. This was special, I appreciate you,” Curry said.
“I wish I could say that! I wish I could say that on TV,” Curry said with a laugh. “Aw, man. Absolutely, what they gonna say now? Nothing. All they could say is it’s golf season.”

In addition to his legacy-altering fourth NBA title, Curry also took home his first-ever NBA Finals MVP award. During the Finals, the 34-year-old Curry averaged 31.2 points, six rebounds, and five assists per game, leading the Warriors to a 4-2 series victory over Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and the Boston Celtics.
