Long Beach Poly Alum Jordan Bell Is An NBA Champion

When Jordan Bell’s draft rights were acquired by the Golden State Warriors last summer, talk immediately began about the possibility of the former Long Beach Poly star winning an NBA title in his rookie season.

On Friday night that’s exactly what happened as the Warriors completed an NBA Finals sweep of LeBron James and the Cavaliers.

We’ll have more stories in the coming days featuring interviews with Bell and the close friends and family who’ve been on this journey with him. For now enjoy some photos and tweets from Friday evening:
