AppLovin Congratulates Our Hometown Warriors!

by Katie Jansen on Jun 17, 2015

We’re so psyched for the Warriors! At AppLovin, we’ve been cheering them on from the start of this epic season, and we’re so glad the team has risen to become one of the best teams in NBA history. (Eighty-three wins this season — the third-most ever, a finish of the regular season with a franchise-record of 67 wins, also setting a team record by winning 39 home games — awesome!)

All season, AppLovin has had a suite at Oracle Stadium, where we’ve had great employee gatherings and shared the love with customers. image 2

Many of our employees are Bay Area natives and have been Warriors fans for decades, while other employees who aren’t from the area have caught Warriors fever.

And of course hats off to Stephen Curry for earning the title of MVP this season and Andre Iguodala for being named the Finals MVP.

The Warriors’ massive win is really a win for Oakland and the entire Bay Area. We’re already looking forward to what happens next season, and we’ll be right there courtside for every home game!
