Even when the Arizona Wildcats are not on the playing field, the school is cashing in — big time from a marketing standpoint.
Last night’s victory for Golden State in the NBA Finals, giving the organization its first title in 40 years, had a significant Arizona Wildcats flavor.
Arizona Wildcats legend Steve Kerr and fellow former Arizona players Bruce Fraser and Luke Walton coached the Warriors to the title.
Andre Iguodala was the deciding factor in the series over Cleveland with his consistent defense on LeBron James and productive scoring in his first three starts of the season in the best-of-seven matchup.
The triumph of Kerr, Iguodala, Fraser and Walton comes after Arizona alum Bob Baffert’s Triple Crown achievement as trainer of American Pharoah.
Former Arizona Wildcats tight end Rob Gronkowski won the Super Bowl title in February and is a very popular celebrity these days.
What’s next? A U.S. Open title for Jim Furyk this week?
