Bernie Sanders feels Oracle burn for Game 7
The Golden State Warriors advanced to the NBA Finals Sunday with a Game 7 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, which was attended by Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who spoke at a campaign event earlier in Oakland.
Sanders arrived at halftime with actor and political activist Danny Glover and wore a blue Oxford shirt that stood out in a sea of yellow “Strength in Numbers” shirts worn by Warriors fans in his section, according to pool media reports.
Curry, who earlier this month was named the first unanimous MVP in NBA history following a season in which Golden State had a league-record 73 wins, will seek to defend the Warriors’ 2014-15 championship in a rematch with the Cavaliers.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday at Oracle Arena.
