Curry, Durant committed to keeping Golden State on top

"I hear all the narratives throughout the season that I was joining, I was hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work", Durant said.

Stephen Curry held the Larry O'Brien trophy, his wife and kids beside him.

Curry starred in the series, combining with Kevin Durant to score 41 points in Game 5 on Monday, and beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 for the Warriors second championship in three years. "Blessed to be able to know I'll be playing at least in the National Basketball Association for four years and see where it goes from there, '" he tells Kawakami. I love Draymond. We got a team full of humble Warriors, and then we got one guy that's just going to stir up the pot every day.

Using teams' regular-season offensive and defensive ratings and their number of postseason possessions, the projected playoff-wide offensive rating this year was just 109.4 - higher than the regular-season mark (108.8), but well below the actual playoff rate (111.3).

Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder were eliminated in the 2016 Western Conference Finals by the Warriors and he made a decision to join the rival franchise the following season, per UPI.com.

"Experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing and experiencing", said James.

For Durant, this was the long-awaited National Basketball Association title No. 1, finally obtained in Year 10, playing for his second franchise. Their first-round pick belongs to the Utah Jazz, which is a result of the deal that helped bring Andre Iguodala to the bay back in 2013.

Finals MVP Kevin Durant was on a different bus with his mom.

Cavs end Warriors perfect postseason run in Game 4
When they met last summer in NY to discuss the biggest decision of his career, neither side even focused on winning titles. Durant's 3-pointer with 45.3 seconds remaining was the go-ahead basket as the Warriors scored the game's final 11 points.

The Warriors won in 2015 before the Cavs made their historic comeback past year.

Nearly as soon as the final buzzer sounded on Monday night and Golden State became the 2017 NBA champions, many followers of both basketball and politics began to wonder whether or not the Warriors would take part in the White House visit that traditionally comes with winning a championship in a North American sport.

In February, Curry, who is paid to endorse Under Armour apparel, took strong issue with that company's CEO, Kevin Plank, calling Trump an "asset". Not to mention a healthy one after his 2016 injuries. But LeBron has stated his desire to someday team up with friends Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony and the advantage the Clippers have is they possibly could get three of the four together. West, Thompson and J.R. Smith received techs after a replay review.

James was familiar with Green's shrewd antics. Durant averaged 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.6 blocks. "And thank God we do, because we need that pot stirred".

The offensive success left many wondering why the Warriors didn't run the play more often - especially with assistant coach Mike Brown telling ESPN's Zach Lowe that he prefers to run it more than Kerr.

The team is called the Golden State Warriors, but they don't belong to all of California.

Two playful superstars who found a way to coexist through all the questions and constant scrutiny, together and smiling as champions. "He said, I wasn't focused but I'm good now". He got his TV interview interrupted by his mother: "Don't matter what nobody say, you did it", she told him.
