Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green found a fitting way to celebrate Steph Curry’s franchise record for points with an expensive gift.
How do you properly celebrate passing a Wilt Chamberlain scoring record? With a very expensive bottle of wine.
When Curry claimed Chamberlain’s franchise scoring record with the Warriors, teammate Draymond Green made sure he marked the occasion with something special.
So Green arranged for a dinner with Curry in Oklahoma City, including a bottle of wine starting at $5,000 a bottle on team owner Joe Lacob’s tab, according to Nick Friedell of ESPN.
Green posted a photo of the pair on Instagram with the bottle in front of them.
The post included goat emojis along with the caption, “It’s a celebration. P.S. Thanks for the vino Joe.”
Curry brought three championships to Golden State. A pricey bottle of wine is a small price to pay to honor him.

This story is also a great example of how Green is Curry’s biggest cheerleader.
“As long as I’m around, you’re going to be celebrated,” Green explained the reason he made a point of taking Curry to dinner and marking the milestone.
Curry broke Chamberlain’s record of 17,783 points for the Warriors on Monday while putting up 53 points in a win over the Nuggets.
Golden State has struggled to hit their previous heights with Klay Thompson injured, but Curry hasn’t slowed down at all. He’s averaging 30.4 points per game this season, which is a career-high.
Green has been by his side all the while. The 31-year-old is averaging just 6.6 points per game, but he’s doing everything else at a high level with a career-high 8.4 assists per game along with 6.5 rebounds and 1.6 steals on average.
