Never Played For A Super Team? Twitter Roasts LeBron's Post Game Comment

The Cavaliers are fresh off a loss to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals for the second time in three years.

After signing Kevin Durant in the offseason, the Warriors looked every bit the offensive juggernaut they were billed to be.

"I love it, I love the group, I love coaching them every day, and this is what I want to do for a long time".

When Durant spoke with Nash about potentially joining Golden State, the once-electrifying point guard said it seemed like a good fit for him to grow as a person.

It also created lofty expectations for Durant, with many onlookers saying his move would be a failure if the Warriors did not go on to win a title in their first season together. Klay Thompson, he was just supposed to be this OK shooter in the league, like that's what you thought of Klay Thompson when he came in. He was a 6-5 power forward.

Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals
Despite being on the losing side, James was one of the stars of the Finals, scoring 41 points in Monday's game . Warriors fans had to suffer through watching their team blow a 3-1 series lead past year .

Durant then stepped closer, all smiles, as doting fans slapped him on the back and grabbed him by the shoulder, as they started to chant, "MVP!"

Durant then replied by saying, "I don't think it's fair to minimize what Kevin offers Golden State, and what they offered him, to say that it was the weakest move in National Basketball Association history".

Durant, Curry and Andre Iguodala are free agents this summer, but money will likely be no object in retaining this core for the foreseeable future. "Nothing should distract from what we were able to accomplish together, the different kind of ceremonies and the traditions that have happened around championship-winning teams. Coach puts us in position to maximize our strengths".

This was Durant's second Finals appearance. Even in years that he hasn't won, he's played a big role in keeping his team in games, and keeping the series close.

Golden State went 67-15 this season in locking up the top seed in the Western Conference. The Warriors and Cavaliers have recreated a similar rivalry, and there is no reason to believe these teams will not see each other next year as well.
