• The Golden State Warriors won the 2022 NBA Finals in six games against the Boston Celtics.
  • Stephen Curry, an eight-time NBA All-Star, earned Finals MVP honors as well as his fourth career title.
  • A fan dressed a goat in Curry’s jersey and brought it to the Warriors’ victory parade on Monday.

The Golden State Warriors’ latest championship has sparked debate over whether team superstar Stephen Curry should be included in the conversation for NBA GOAT — or the greatest of all time.

And one avid fan went to great lengths to point out Curry’s case.

The Warriors celebrated their victory in the 2022 NBA Finals – their fourth in eight years – with a customary victory parade through the streets of San Francisco. As players, coaches and staff climbed atop the buses with confetti raining down from the sky, fans watched from the sidewalk and cheered on the most successful franchise in recent NBA history.

But the aforementioned admirer brought a little something extra to the festivities: a live goat.

The four-legged fan was spotted among the crowd wearing Curry’s blue Warriors jersey and a leash. twitter user @TheWarriorsTalk caught a brief snippet of the goat standing on the sidewalk as other parade-goers slipped by in a double take.

The obvious implication of the presence of cattle and their curry garb is that Golden State’s ringleader is the GOAT. The eight-time NBA All-Star is almost certainly the greatest shooter the game has ever seen, and now that he’s won his first Finals MVP award, his resume is on par with many league greats.

Curry is one of six players in NBA history to win at least four titles, earn multiple league MVP honors, and a Finals MVP award; the other five are LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Tim Duncan, by ESPN Stats and Information. While most NBA fans would probably be hesitant to put Curry at the top of the list of the league’s biggest stars, he’s certainly among them.

And he may be the only one to have seen a goat wearing his jersey show up at his team’s victory parade.
