Kevin Durant gives shoutout to Prince George's County after National Basketball Association championship victory

Kevin Durant gives shoutout to Prince George's County after National Basketball Association championship victory

Fans react at Oracle Arena after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Monday, June 12, 2017.

Naturally, Facebook and Twitter erupted as Warriors superstar Kevin Durant, who lit up the internet when he signed with Golden State last summer, took command of this year's NBA Finals to become the series MVP. "So for me personally I have nothing to be - I have no reason to put my head down".

Durant averaged 35 points, eight rebounds and five assists per game, but the impressive part is he did it shooting 56 percent from the field.

Tens of millions flocked to social media in anticipation of this year's NBA Finals, the third straight year the Warriors and the Cavaliers fought for the championship. But as far as that team, they're going to be here for a while.

The game-changing spurt ended with a scuffle when Golden State's David West shoved Irving as he tried to grab the ball away.

"NBA players have just larger personalities, compared to those in the other major sports and that plays well on social media, for better or for worse", he said. He felt the Warriors needed the second-best player in the world to added to a 73-win team to defeat James. Owners decided a year ago to help teams retain their star free agents, and the Warriors are poised to exploit the changes in order to dominate the future following their 2017 NBA Finals win.

"I know our front office is going to continue to try to put our ball club, put our franchise, in a position where we can compete for a championship year in and year out", James said.

During his 2014 NBA MVP speech, Durant gave his mother all the props for his success, which spawned some of the Internet's most hilarious memes.

And while Welts signed with the Warriors the same year he came out, it's significant that the coming out happened first. "I just have to continue to be the person I am and also grow along the way".

"The team we had, we were great, right where you want to be", said Warriors forward Draymond Green.

James, who in 2012 with Miami beat the Thunder in Durant's only other Finals, wound up with 41 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists.

On the court moments after the win, Durant hugged his mother Wanda and talked about the support he received from his family, friends, and his hometown.

"Well I'm not happy he won his first".

"Getting that first championship for me was like having my first son". Twelve of the Warriors' 16 playoff wins this postseason were by double digits.

"He's had an wonderful career, but he just took it to the next level", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
