Steph Curry Gives “Glory to God” and Remixes DJ Khaled’s Album Cover to Commemorate NBA Finals Win

All he does is win! The Golden State Warriors pulled off the big win for the 2017 NBA Finals. During Game 5 Monday night (June 12), Steph Curry alongside the other great Golden State Warriors were able to defeat their opponents, the Cleveland Cavaliers – and by extension, LeBron James. The ending score was close, with Curry and friends reigning as victor over the Cavs with 129-120 and ending the Finals at 4-1.

Curry, who is no doubt one of the Warriors’ most notable faces, as well as talents, acting as their standout point guard, commemorated the win with his team by posting his own rendition of DJ Khaled’s Grateful album cover. The cover art for the Miami producer’s highly-anticipated album features his meme-worthy infant son, Asahd, chilling in a hot tub.

Curry’s remix of the adorable album cover art featured a picture of him as an infant cropped onto Asahd’s body with pictures of his two NBA Finals trophies photoshopped onto the cover as well, and the name of the artist on the cover altered to feature his name: Steph Curry – Grateful. The spin was no doubt a re-imagining that reflected how the renowned athlete felt following his win.


The Warriors’ win has made them buzzworthy news this morning, especially since an answer of who would be the winner between LeBron and Steph Curry was given when Curry pulled through to earn the W. However, another question has been raised by the Golden State Warriors’ win, and that is, if the team would follow through with their decision to decline a White House invite.

Last month, it was announced by the executive director of the NBA Players Association, Michele Roberts that neither the Warriors nor the Cavaliers would be accepting the White House invite post-win. This morning, it was announced that the Warriors would be “skipping the White House visit, as a unanimous team decision per reports.”

The team have not officially confirmed this decision, but if so, it’s definitely a decline we stand with the team behind.
