Golden State Warriors take NBA title

Golden State Warriors take NBA title

"But look, you can't take it with you".

While the Warriors were 73-9 without Durant, they needed him for the NBA Finals against James.

From the Bay all the way to OKC.

"To go up against somebody I view as like a rival, personally, is an unbelievable feeling to beat him", Durant claimed. "I work hard, I believe in myself, I believe in the game, I respect the game, I love the game, and I knew at some point in my life that it will come around for me".

Durant efficiently powered the Warriors to their second title in three years as they beat the Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5.

- The Warriors averaged 119.3 points per game throughout the playoffs.

James racked up 41 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists in Cleveland's Game 5 loss.

Durant said the Rihanna dustup - Durant appeared to stare her down after he hit a late three-pointer in Game 1 - was a personal highlight during the Finals. He picked it up in game 2 when he shot 8 of 12 and scored 22 points.

Dismissing haters is not such a big deal to Durant as they might imagine. However, those odds increased to minus-200 after Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry & Co. ran roughshod over the Cavs en route a historic 16-1 run in the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

Kerr won the NBA's Coach of the Year Award for the 2015-16 season. Cleveland needs another All-Star-caliber player to compete with Golden State.

The first-ever NBA Finals trilogy is over, and the Golden State Warriors are NBA Champions again.

Curry is an unrestricted free agent this summer and Durant can become one with a player option. "He's just been a kind person on campus", said one student. The 28-year-old was bought from the Oklahoma City Thunder to boost Warriors' already strong offense. "I've been waiting a whole year to smoke this, so I'm going to enjoy every last bit of this". "Steve will be our coach".

- Durant's 35.2 points per game rank as the 10th-most in NBA Finals history.

Monday night's episode of Jeopardy!, which was nearly certainly pre-recorded weeks or even months ago, ended up being well-timed for the Warriors' Game 5 win to become the 2017 NBA Champions.

Did James deserve to win the award - named for Celtics star Bill Russell by National Basketball Association commissioner David Stern in 2009 - this year? Last week, Smith had Durant's mom, Wanda, on First Take and told her directly that her son's move to the Warriors was "weak". "And Draymond was like, 'keep playing to the end.' Andre is like, 'keep playing, we have like 50 seconds left.' And I'm like, 'bro, we're about to win the title'". "You've got to call Kevin Durant a champ now".
