During the rally, fans toured the Warriors locker room and took pictures with Kent Bazemore …

… and Stephen Curry’s Western Conference Player of the Month award for April.
Carl Landry was spotted hanging out with fans in the Stella Lounge…

Fans could also participate in a shooting contest, shop in the team store, or simply hang out with other fans.
Throughout the night several fans participated in Warriors trivia with Hypeman Franco Finn in order to win cool prizes.

The Q&A concluded with a “Let’s Go Warriors” chant and the players tossing Warriors t-shirts into the crowd.
Of course, the players couldn’t resist signing a few more autographs for the greatest fans in the league.
