Heroes and Warriors! Juan Toscano, the first Mexican to win an NBA title
Mexico City. – He didn’t play a single minute during the game that led the Golden State Warriors to their seventh NBA title, but that didn’t stop Juan Toscano Anderson from celebrating during the final minutes, one in which his team already knew the end of the year was sweet.
A successful night for the Californian and historic Mexican basketball franchise, as Toscano Anderson is the first tricolor player to touch the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
Yes, he was born in Oakland, California, but his mother is in Michoacan and played for the Tricolor team. The Spanish language has always been an important part of her life.
So did Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson for Golden State, the team that has been declared champions for the fourth time in recent years. Always with Splash Brothers in the lead roles.
And this time was not the exception. Curry contributed 34 points to the Warriors’ victory over the Celtics (103-90), enough to win the Finals (4-2) and confirm the Mexican’s ancestry.
They beat Boston in Game 6
The Golden State Warriors won their seventh NBA title in their history, and fourth in the past eight years, by winning the Finals Series 4-2 after defeating the Boston Celtics 103-90 at TD Garden in Boston.
The Warriors, led by 32 points and six times by glorified star Steve Curry, have been declared NBA champions four years after they were last, against a Celtics who saw their dream of an 18th-time podium finish fading, which would be an absolute record.
And she has completed a journey like no other, having played five consecutive Finals, relegated to last place in the NBA, and is now recovering toward greatness, just two years after suffering the worst record in the league.
For Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala, this is their fourth championship. The top three came in 2015, 2017, and 2018, when Golden State established a dynasty and reached the finals five times.
The San Francisco team added a new Larry O’Brien Cup to their record after winning titles in 1947, 1956, 1975, 2015, 2017, and 2018.
