NBA champions the Golden State Warriors took over Las Vegas over the weekend, hosting events, playing poolside and taking in the nightlife scene.

The group hosted an exclusive celebration at Jewel Nightclub at Aria on Friday night. All-stars Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Matt Barnes and Damian Jones, among others were on hand, greeted by a procession of staff members and a drumline. Blue and gold confetti filled the air and nearly every inch of the nightclub was decorated with the team’s banners and flags. Oversized cutouts of each players’ face were dispersed into the crowd.

As the night went on, Green quickly became the life of the party as he bounced around from his table to the DJ booth, stopping to interact with fans and friends along the way. Smiling non-stop throughout the night, he posed for pictures, and even got on top of the DJ booth to spray champagne into the crowd. Green was presented with a cake with the Warriors logo and topped with a replica of the Championship trophy. The Warriors’ owners Joseph Lacob and Peter Guber were also in attendance and were seen excitedly posing for photos with Green.

Later in the evening, Durant joined the group and appeared to be much more reserved than the rest of the team. The Finals MVP was spotted chatting with guests and teammates at his VIP table as he took in the sights of the high-energy celebration. Comedian Dave Chappelle was seen celebrating with the team at the premier venue, as he toasted with the players and even posed for pictures.

The venue was decorated with blue and gold balloons, mini Warriors basketball hoops and Golden State flags. Over-the-top bottle presentations, a large blue and gold cake topped with a model of the NBA Championship trophy and more were part of the celebrations.

Green continued his lively celebrations as he endlessly danced, enjoyed drinks, and chatted with guests throughout his time spent at the premier venue. Thompson, who arrived a little later in the day, seemed to be in high spirits as he mingled with his teammates and relaxed in the VIP cabana.

Several members of the 2017 NBA Championship-winning Golden State Warriors returned to Drai’s Nightclub at the Cromwell on Saturday night for a performance by hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd. MVP Kevin Durant arrived with two party busses of guests, including teammates power forward David West, small forward Andre Inguodala, center JaVale McGee, center Zaza Pachulia,  shooting guard Ian Clark, forward Matt Barnes, and Damian Jones, and 60-plus friends who took to two stage-side VIP booths. The group drank on Moet & Chandon Nectar Rose, a magnum of Don Julio 1942, Hennessy and an engraved magnum of Belvedere. Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch and Sacramento Kings power forward Willie Cauley-Stein were also spotted.
