Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry reached the NBA’s Holy Grail on Thursday, winning his fourth NBA championship with a dominant 103-90 beatdown of the Celtics in Boston.

And he dutifully helped drive the tired metaphor home by drinking from an actual golden chalice during the locker room celebration. Video from inside the Warriors’ locker room showed Curry with his Finals MVP trophy in one hand and his golden celebration chalice in the other, having champagne sprayed on him as his deservedly drank his cup.

An SFGATE review of locker room footage reveals the cup very likely came from a Moet Chandon champagne tub and was not the only one — several are seen floating in the tub in a Moses Moody Instagram live video, and lined up in an NBA clip package of the celebration. They’re also later seen scattered across the floor in an NBA Instagram clip.

Bob Myers was later spotted drinking from one barefoot wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

The whole scene was a deserved one for the Warriors’ very own Indiana Jones. Curry bested a seemingly unbestable Celtics defense, whipping up 31.2 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists per game during the Finals. He became just the 4th player to boulder his way to averaging 30-5-5 multiple times in the Finals, joining Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Jerry West. And he celebrated carrying the Warriors to their fourth title in eight seasons on Thursday early and often, with a third quarter ring taunt, tears before the final buzzer even sounded and a locker room party for the ages.
