The Golden State Warriors celebrated Ring Night in style prior to their regular-season opener against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.

In honor of their 2017-18 NBA championship, players, coaches and owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber received their rings from NBA commissioner Adam Silver. The players' rings came down on specialised wires from the top of Oracle Arena as a sellout crowd roared its approval.

“Last year was an unbelievable journey,” Warriors superstar Stephen Curry said during a brief address to the crowd. “Let’s celebrate this to the fullest.”

Curry then made it a point to introduce longtime equipment manager Eric Housen to the crowd as Housen jogged over to be with the players as the 2017-18 banner was revealed in the arena’s rafters.

The top of each ring is reversible. Seventy-four sapphires on the “blue” side represent the number of wins (regular season and playoff) by the Warriors last season. On the “white” side, 74 diamonds represent the win total.

The Warriors’ mantra, “Strength in Numbers,” is revealed when the ring's top is twisted off.

“It’s special,” Curry said after the game. “I remember looking up, there was only Philadelphia Warriors banners and the '74-'75 team. To come into Oracle every night and in our practice facility and look on the wall up in the rafters and see three championship banners we've brought back to the Bay, that's Amazon. 

“Kind of reminisce on the journey in those little moments. Obviously, we're still trying to go for more so it's really hard in terms of putting it all into perspective, but nights like tonight are where you really kind of sit back and feel really proud about what we've accomplished.”
