The Warriors are in the middle of a week-long break before Game 1 of the NBA Finals with the Cavaliers, and have found ways to take their minds off basketball, while staying entertained.
Golden State star and league MVP, Steph Curry, attended a San Francisco Giants home game against the visiting Atlanta Braves on Friday.
Curry’s presence at the Giants game registered heavy on the Bay Area sports Richter scale.
It caught the attention of the A’s clubhouse, too, with right fielder Josh Reddick tweeting his disappointment at seeing the Warriors star heading across the Bay Bridge to cheer on the Giants, rather than next door to the Coliseum to root for the A’s.

A’s manager Bob Melvin was asked about it before Saturday’s game against the Yankees, and said Curry has "got an open invite."
While Curry has yet to take Melvin up on his offer, one half of the Splash Brothers did attend, as All-Star guard Klay Thompson grabbed a seat shortly after the A's game began on Sunday.
Thompson was spotted with an green A's hat, shades and some Coliseum nachos, enjoying an afternoon game with some friends.
"Here in Oakland, we take significant pride in what they’re doing," Melvin said of the Warriors on Saturday. "They’re right here next door to us, so we feel like they’re an Oakland team even though they are a Bay Area club. It’s very exciting. It’s been a long time since they’ve been in this position and they get full support from us.”
