San Francisco Giants legend Barry Bonds was seen at the first game of the NBA finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics at the Chase Centre. Bonds was seated courtside at the finals when the camera panned at him as he was displayed on the big screen. The entire Chase Centre erupted in loud cheer and applause as they serenaded their local legend.
Barry Bonds has one of the greatest Baseball players in history as he played in the Major League Baseball for 22 years. He started off his career as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1986 to 1992 and then moved to the San Francisco Giants from 1993 to 2007.

Bonds has won a record seven NL MVP awards and 12 Silver Slugger awards, along with 14 All-Star selections. He also holds many MLB hitting records, including most career home runs (762), most home runs in a single season (73, set in 2001), and most career walks.
The Giants also celebrated the Sultan of Shot by retiring his jersey number 25 in 2018. At the ceremony, Bonds said, “I built this ballpark. When I walk in this ballpark, I know whose house it is.” He then expressed his gratitude towards the Bay Area fans and said, “Thank you, San Francisco,” he said. “Thank you for making all my dreams come true. Love you.”
But unfortunately for Bonds and other Golden State Warriors fans as the Boston Celtics registered a dominant 120-108 win to take a 1-0 lead in the finals lead. Dubs’ point guard Steph Curry had an incredible game as he score 34 points while shooting 50% from the field and deep. But Boston had multiple 20-point scorers who were crucial in a fourth-quarter comeback that sealed the win.
