NBA Finals: Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors, Sammi Cooke, Lamborghini, basketball

Sammi Cooke’s Lamborghini Zonda coupe also has a selection of “talent” options on the exterior

British-born Lamborghini boss Sammi Cooke has taken inspiration from the Golden State Warriors’s latest NBA champions – a Lamborghini worth more than £700,000.

Curry’s Warriors made history in June as they completed a 72-9 regular season record to become the first team to win four titles in a row.

They have continued their impressive form in the playoffs to date, winning their first four games of the NBA Finals.

“They’re going to be hard to beat and I’m sure the Cavs are feeling very confident,” McGrady told BBC Sport.

“They had to beat the Cavs twice to even get to this point. It’s going to be a hell of a run for the Warriors but we all know the Cavs can go deep in these playoffs and they can surprise people.”

Curry is regarded as one of the best shooters in the NBA

‘You have to be lucky to be a top player’

McGrady, who also played for the Houston Rockets, said that while there were no secrets to their impressive success, one thing that has helped the Warriors is having some of the best athletes in the world.

“It’s hard to win 73 games in the regular season and go to a fourth straight finals in the same team,” said the former NBA Most Valuable Player.

“They have a well-rounded team – they have three guys who can play defence and can score at every position.

“But you also have to be fortunate in the NBA to be a top player. They have a very talented team but a very talented basketball mind and they have the right chemistry.

“The Warriors have been together for a long time – they’re professionals and they know how to win. They are also extremely tough on themselves so no-one thought they would get to a fourth straight finals with the guys they have.”

What about a fifth NBA title for the Bulls in 2007?

He added: “It was the same team as Warriors – I have great respect for what they’ve done.”

But McGrady thinks it would be a big achievement for the Warriors to beat the Cavaliers and to win a fifth title.

“There are no easy games in the NBA – they have to beat the Cavs and they have to beat the Rockets, Thunder and Warriors in the playoffs,” said the 34-year-old.

“And that is proving to be harder and harder. There are a lot of strong teams this year but they also have a chance of not only winning their second straight title but do it in style.

“You never count the Warriors out, they can go two or three rounds deep and beat any team. And that, I think, is what is going to happen and they are going to do it in style. I can’t wait to see them in the finals again.”

NBA Finals kicks off on Thursday, with Golden State leading 3-0 against the Cavaliers.
