Usain Bolt shows love to the Golden State Warriors after their narrow loss to the Sacramento Kings during their NBA match.

World’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, is certainly a Golden State Warriors ardent fan and it is notable from his support.

The Golden State Warriors who are the 2022 NBA Champions narrowly lost their match to Sacramento Kings, after they were beaten 133-134.

Bolt was seemingly disappointed by the result and he rallied behind the team, posting on his Instagram stories saying: “Tough one tonight @warriors.”

Meanwhile, the multiple Olympic champion was also over the moon after the Warriors stunned the Atlanta Hawks on January 24 in San Francisco.

It was an emotional win for Warriors since they were returning after dealing with the loss of their assistant coach Dejan Milojevic last week.

They celebrated a massive win over the Hawks concluding the game with 134-112 with their forward, Jonathan Kuminga tied a franchise record by making all 11 of his shots in a 25-point performance.

It was indeed commendable for the team to overcome the loss of their assistant coach and then return to the games.

Meanwhile, on January 17, the 46-year-old Serbian lovingly known as "Deki," suffered a fatal heart attack during a team dinner in Utah and despite several efforts, the assistant coach could not be saved. Deeply affected by the loss, the players of the Golden State Warriors postponed two games in the aftermath.

Milojevic joined the Warriors’ coaching staff in 2021 and also contributed to the team's run at the 2022 NBA championship.
