Kevin Durant wins first NBA Championship with Golden State Warriors

Kevin Durant wins first NBA Championship with Golden State Warriors

Reigning two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry had himself quite the series as well, posting 26.8 points, eight rebounds and 9.4 assists a game, counting his 34-point, 10-assist line in the Game 5 closeout win.

The two teams have contested the past three finals.

"You have to tip your hat to Cleveland", he said.

The Golden State Warriors have yet to receive an invitation to celebrate their 2017 National Basketball Association championship at the White House, but if they do, at least one player won't be in attendance. Paul George would fit the bill, as he helped IN put up the best showing against the Cleveland Cavaliers IN the playoffs leading up to the NBA Finals by averaging 28 points along with 8.8 rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 1.8 steals.

KD was relentless on both sides of the court, playing a menacing defence and igniting the league's best offence.

Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry on a team that won it all in 2015 and was runner-up past year after a season in which it had a record 73 wins in 82 games.

The win provided redemption for the Warriors, who brought Kevin Durant over from the Oklahoma City Thunder last offseason to bolster their already high-powered offense.

"She's seen me as a kid putting in work".

He walked away from a city, shoot, an entire state that treasured him, and a franchise committed and close to winning a title, to join an all-star team nearly guaranteed a championship.

"It's a team sport, and we want to achieve the highest honor in a team sport, which is winning a championship", Durant said.

But now, it appears that Danny Ainge and the C's will need to find a way to beat him and the rest of the Warriors in the NBA Finals. An unbelievable feeling for him, an unbelievable feeling for me and an unbelievable feeling for the team.

The Cavaliers' 49 points in the first quarter of game four were a record for a single quarter in any finals game.

"It's different just because of what happened past year to be honest", Curry said.

Having added Durant last off-season to the talents of Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green among others, it was perhaps hardly surprising they should sweep all before them. "But I'm going to celebrate this one for now".

It makes the latest crown much different than the 2015 title, the first in 40 years for the club and in the careers of most of the players. "I've been waiting a whole year to smoke this, so I'm going to enjoy every last bit of this".
