Members of the Golden State Warriors basketball team spent some time partying in the Las Vegas nightclubs and dayclubs in celebration of their championship win. The staff prepared special cakes, head shot cutouts, and elaborate presentations with champagne in their honor.
Say this for the Dubs, they left no stone, or major Strip resort, unturned. Add Wynn/Encore to a list including Aria (Jewel Nightclub and Liquid Day Lounge), Cosmopolitan (Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub), The Cromwell (Drai’s), Mandalay Bay (the Mandalay Bay Events Center for Saturday’s Andre Ward-Sergey Kovalev fight) and MGM Grand (Topgolf). At least one Warrior, and usually several, was spotted at each of these party retreats.
Finals MVP Kevin Durant was typically in the eye of the frivolity, joined by co-owners Joseph Lacob and Peter Guber. Encore Beach Club was the most recent reported sighting from the Warriors’ casino crawl. Green, Klay Thompson, JaVale McGee, Andre Iguodala, Matt Barnes and Ian Clark were lavished with attention and bottle service.
The team’s next move should be to display the championship trophy at the Aria porte cochère, or the DJ booth at Jewel, or somewhere. And put a tip cup in front of it, because I understand the purse strings were pretty tight from this bunch.
