Stephen Curry pulled up from 29 feet out and buried another 3-point dagger before pointing to his right ring finger in the third quarter of Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

Underneath Boston's historic championship banners and at the Celtics' hallowed parquet floor, Curry did not just put another ring on it

he cemented his future Hall of Fame legacy by becoming a member of an exclusive, legendary group with his first NBA Finals MVP trophy.

Curry won his fourth championship and the one honor that had eluded him when he was unanimously named the Bill Russell NBA Finals Most Valuable Player

after leading the Golden State Warriors to a 103-90 win to eliminate the Boston Celtics on Thursday.

As the final seconds ticked off, an emotional Curry broke down in tears before needing to sit down on the court.
