The Golden State Warriors' NBA championship celebration included lots of champagne, a little Riley Curry and ... a salad?
As the Warriors wrapped up their series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, ESPN cameras caught a man wheeling champagne into Golden State's locker room. But the bubbly wasn't the only item on this cart. See if you can spot something else:

While champagne is often associated with championships, salad is not. But, hey, winning a championship for the first time in four decades calls for a special celebration.
People on Twitter had some fun with the salad sighting:
My favorite Warriors player is whoever ordered the celebratory salad. https://t.co/ztRUgfAtwO

There's a chance the salad was simply left on the cart from an earlier order, but it is fun to speculate on which member of the Warriors would have ordered the salad.

A recent Sports Illustrated feature revealed that Steve Kerr is a fan of greens, so maybe it was he who wanted the dish. Lee Jenkins writes that there's one salad that Kerr particularly enjoys, the Dailey Method Salad from the Summer Kitchen Bake Shop in Berkeley.
According to the Summer Kitchen Bake Shop's online menu, the Dailey Method Salad costs $10.50 and includes baby greens, roasted chicken, garbanzo beans, pickled vegetables, cucumbers and ... champagne vinaigrette.
Kerr, it seems, likes his dressing on the side.
