Kaepernick and the Warriors have a ton of mutual respect for each other.
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers in overtime last night by a score of 119-117 to complete their sweep of the Western Conference Finals. With the win, the Warriors are headed to their fifth-straight NBA Finals and are set to defend last year's title against either the Toronto Raptors or the Milwaukee Bucks. It's clear that the Warriors are the favorites to win it all and are showing the world why they are one of the best dynasties to ever do it.

Considering just how good the Warriors are, they have a ton of supporters out in the Bay area, one of them being Colin Kaepernick who used to play for the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL. The Warriors players have been big supporters of Kaepernick as he's fought for the causes he believes in, despite all of the negatives that have come with it. On Monday night, Kaep returned all the love the Warriors have given him over the years and celebrated with the team on the court after the game.
Kaepernick exchanged words with head coach Steve Kerr as well as star players Draymond Green and Steph Curry. With the NBA Finals just nine days away, it's safe to say we know who Colin will be cheering for.
