Stephen Curry considers his latest NBA championship to be the most meaningful out of the four he's won with the Golden State Warriors.

Curry explained the significance behind the Warriors' 2022 title while playing a game of "this or that" with Ashley Nicole Moss of Sports Illustrated.

"You don't find me ugly crying on the court for no reason," he said. "That raw emotion that came out after Game 6 (of the NBA Finals) kind of signaled how much this meant to me, how much this meant to our team.

"The first one, you don't really know what you're doing until you accomplish it, and then you're celebrating. The next two were kind of validation, trying to remain champions. But after these last three years and winning that one, definitely the most special."

Curry was then asked if he'd rather have his 2022 championship ring taken away or the two he received while playing alongside Kevin Durant in 2017 and 2018.

"No, I want this one," Curry said. "Give me this one all day, every day."
