Farewell, Zaza! You were a true Warrior through and through. You carried yourself with the highest degree of professionalism — particularly when you lost your starting job and fell out of the rotation.
Many a great moment you had on this back-to-back championship squad, but this is by far my favorite. With this dance, you exhibited that “I don’t care” attitude on the Boston Celtics’ own court and proved that you belonged. The Warriors’ “cockiness” and “arrogance” was already pulsing through your veins.
The pure joy Steve Kerr always preaches about was already apparent. This was the moment all of us knew you were one of us.
It was fun while it lasted.
Good luck in Detroit!
