In what will be the final ring ceremony at the Oracle Arena (what with the Warriors moving to the Chase Center next year), the Golden State Warriors celebrated their sixth championship in style.
Check out the highlights of the ceremony below:
Gotta keep things fresh. The Warriors' latest championship rings came down from the rafters.

Stephen Curry, in typical classy fashion, invites Eric Housen — who for 30 years has been Mr. Everything for the franchise — to join the team for the unveiling of the championship banner— Marcus Thompson (@ThompsonScribe) October 17, 2018
Housen started as a ball boy in the 80s. He would rebound for Chris Mullin late into the night. He is the travel secretary, equipment manager and everything else they need— Marcus Thompson (@ThompsonScribe) October 17, 2018
Also, these rings have a special twist, they're reversible!
