Last night (Friday, June 16) NBA champions the Golden State Warriors hosted an exclusive celebration at JEWEL Nightclub inside ARIA Resort & Casino.
Arriving at about 12:30 a.m., the group of players, which included all-stars Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Matt Barnes, and Damian Jones, among others, were immediately greeted with a procession of stunning staff members and a drumline as they lined the entrance of the nightspot welcoming the team in true Vegas fashion. As the team made their way to their VIP tables, cheers from the jam-packed crowd erupted as blue and gold confetti filled the air and nearly every inch of the nightclub was decked out with the team’s banners and flags. Adding to the fun, giant oversized cutouts of each players’ face were dispersed into the crowed, allowing fans to hold them high into the sky and join in on the welcome celebration as JEWEL resident DJ Irie pumped up the energy in the room. The players and their massive entourage were seen thoroughly enjoying their time in the venue as they were spotted dancing, enjoying cocktails, and mingling at their VIP sections until the early hours of the morning.
As the night went on, Green quickly became the life of the party as he bounced around from his table to the DJ booth, stopping to interact with fans and friends along the way. Smiling non-stop throughout the night, he animatedly posed for pictures, and even got on top of the DJ booth to spray champagne into the vivacious crowd. In order to commemorate the team’s triumphant success, Green was presented an elaborate cake, which was decked out in blue and gold, barred the Warriors logo, and topped with a replica of the Championship trophy. The Warriors’ owners Joseph Lacob and Peter Guber were also in attendance and were seen excitedly posing for photos with Green.
Later in the evening, Durant joined the group and appeared to be much more reserved than the rest of the team. The Finals MVP was spotted chatting with guests and teammates at his VIP table as he took in the sights of the high-energy celebration. Shortly after Durant’s arrival, world-renown comedian Dave Chappelle was seen celebrating with the team at the premier venue, as he toasted with the players and even posed for pictures.
The immense celebration at the packed nightclub was the perfect way to honor the team’s successful season and continued until the early hours of the morning.
