The Golden State Warriors, maybe largely because of the astounding three-point shooting prowess of Steph Curry, have gained fame well beyond the Bay Area and even outside the United States. As proof of that, ABC 7 found tweeted photos from a Nepalese sherpa whose son is a huge fan of the Warriors, and ahead of their third NBA Finals face-off with the Cleveland Cavaliers in three years, he brought a Steph Curry number 30 jersey/tank-top to the top of Mount Everest with him, and took selfies with it.
The above photo, taken during a climb on Sunday which was sherpa Nima Tenji's seventh summiting of Everest, show him fulfilling his 15-year-old son's request. The photo below was taken afterwards on the descent, at Camp 4.
As Bleacher Report quips, "Your move, Cleveland Cavaliers fans."
Starting Thursday, the Warriors will begin their third consecutive Finals against the Cavs, with each of them winning once in the last two years though for Warriors fans, last year's bare-knuckle finale loss was especially hard to stomach. The good news: ESPN polled 28 basketball experts, and only five of them are predicting another Cavs win, with 23 certain that this will be the Warriors' year yet again.
