Stephen Curry got a surreal call from the former president of the United States of America, Barack Obama after his NBA Finals win.
He was still on the court when he received the call of congratulations from Mr. Obama. The two are known for their friendship and go way back. They have even golfed together.

News of the call was first reported by NBCNews Bay Area.
In addition to golf and other sports, the two have also appeared together in support of causes like youth violence.
Even though Obama is no longer in the White House for the championship visit this year, Curry and his team will be met by Obamas former Vice President and now US President, Joe Biden.
Biden also congratulated the Golden State Warriors in a tweet.
Vice President Kama Harris also tweeted her congratulation on the team, saying, Congratulations to the @Warriors on returning to the top and winning the NBA Finals! I’m so proud of this team and all they have accomplished. And congratulations to the @Celtics on a strong season.
In addition to Curry, Obama also reached out to Warriors coach Steve Kerr in a text message.
