The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-97 in Game 6 of the NBA finals, and not surprisingly, celebs had a lot to say about Steph Curry's team trumping LeBron James and co.!

Riley Curry, the cutest scene-stealing star of all, was understandably excited that her dad Steph and his teammates won the championship. Riley's a little young for a social media account of her own, but her mom Ayesha Curry Instagrammed a photo of the 2-year-old posing alongside the dad's team's trophy (which is bigger than her)!

"To God be the glory!" wrote Ayesha, who is pregnant with her and Steph's second child. "So very proud of @wardell30 [Steph] and the @warriors."

She certainly wasn't the only one to congratulate the team—even President Barack Obama sent his well wishes to the Warriors on Twitter!

Plenty of of other famous sports fans tweeted their congratulations, too.

Others, it seemed, were really hoping for LeBron to pull a win.

LeBron didn't feel like the the Cavaliers' loss was a total failure, though. "I felt—I mean, it was a great series up until—they blew the game open in the fourth in Game 5, but we had a chance there," he said in an interview with "Tonight we had our chances, but, you know, we ran out of talent. We ran out of talent tonight. We gave everything we had. The guys played as hard as they could as long as we could."

"But that team across the way, you tip your hats to them," he continued. "I cannot remember a team like them being healthy all year for the most part. All the guys, I mean, they did a great job. Guys being healthy, guys playing their system, and it showed in these Finals."

Way to be a good sport, King James!
