Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and teammate Draymond Green had quite the celebration after the former passed Wilt Chamberlain as the franchise’s leading scorer.
On Tuesday night, Green celebrated Curry’s milestone by taking the Warriors superstar out to dinner in Oklahoma City, per Nick Friedell of ESPN. While there, Dray apparently tricked Warriors owner Joe Lacob into purchasing a $5,000 bottle of wine.
The 2015 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche made it’s way into the team bill, and Lacob had no problem with it. According to Green, the Warriors boss was a real one despite his antics.
“Joe is incredible by the way,” Green said, as he also posted photos of the dinner on social media. “That was a very expensive bottle of wine, but Joe let us get that one on the team bill, so we appreciate Joe for that. Not every day that somebody’s approving a bottle of La Tâche. So shoutout to Joe, man. We definitely appreciated that, but it was obviously for a great reason. I think I saw something where Reggie Miller said [Curry is] ‘Mr. Warrior.’ [There] is no better description than that.”
Here’s Green talking about the celebration:

With the Warriors fighting for their lives to clinch the eighth seed in the Western Conference, they will need Stephen Curry and Draymond Green to continue leading the team. Hopefully, the good wine and dinner they had help in revitalizing their energy and focus entering this crucial stretch.
