Curry and Durant look to build NBA dynasty

He finished with averages of 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists in the five-game series.

Any other season, those would have been Finals MVP numbers, and James likely would have added his fourth title in his eighth Finals appearance.

The win provided redemption for the Warriors, who brought Kevin Durant over from the Oklahoma City Thunder last off-season to bolster their already high-powered offense. Then it was Golden State's time again, with Durant as the prized addition. I just wanted to put it all out there. "I have no reason to look back at what I could have done or shouldn't have done or what I could have done better for the team. I left everything I had out on the floor every single game for five games in this Finals, and you come up short". "We were another opponent in their way".

Golden State used a 28-4 second-quarter run to take charge - just after it appeared Durant should have been called for a third foul on a basket by James - and got to celebrate right at home in Oakland surrounded by a deafening home crowd waving yellow rally towels and holding up phones to shoot video and photos as the final minute of the clock ticked away. "They're going to be the highest favourite we've ever had going into a season, any team in any sport", Jeff Serman, an odds maker at the Westgate SuperBook, was quoted as saying by ESPN. Pretty much all their big-name guys are in their 20s, and they don't show any signs of slowing down.

"I had a letdown past year", Green said.

James praised his teammates for overcoming an injury-plagued season and being able to "hit the switch" in time for the playoffs. One potential target is Pacers shooting guard Paul George.

Green had sat out this very game a year ago, suspended because of flagrant foul point accumulation after he swiped at James' groin in Game 4. "They're assembled as good as you can assemble".

Lost in the uproar that greeted Durant's move to a Golden State team that won a record-breaking 73 games in the regular season and beat his previous employers, the Oklahoma City Thunder, in the Western Conference Finals past year, is that the core of this team has been built by the draft. But Durant, being a team player as well as a scoring machine, made the Warriors better from day one.
