Did Lebron James deserve to be voted NBA Finals MVP?

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.

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

The Warriors have earned another spot in the National Basketball Association history book. But as far as that team, they're going to be here for a while. "This is Golden State's era".

During a post-game interview inside Oakland's Oracle Arena with ABC's Doris Burke, Mama Durant intervened to let Durant know just how proud of him she was.

Five years ago, Durant was playing his first National Basketball Association finals, and he didn't manage to win the ring with Oklahoma.

The Warriors have not made an official announcement, but head coach Steve Kerr and several players have been openly critical of Trump and his policies.

Stephen Curry added 34 points, 10 assists and six rebounds as Golden State closed out its second title in three years after squandering a 3-1 lead a year ago. Kind of fast forwarding to right now, how is he a different player and a different person since you do know him personally, and even though you're - obviously you're upset because you lost, how do you feel about him winning that first championship?

But in the featured matchup of the NBA Finals, Kevin Durant had his rival in the only area he cared about: wins.

And while Welts signed with the Warriors the same year he came out, it's significant that the coming out happened first.

The diminishing of his and the Warriors' accomplishment won't just stop, but ultimately Golden State needed Durant as much as he needed them, with both sides achieving their goal.

"We learned from everything we've been through", Curry said during the trophy celebration.

Draymond Green stayed on the court in a game that featured three technicals on one play with 3:08 left before halftime. "You did it! Look at me", Wanda Durant said grabbing her son's face.

James scored 41 points with 13 rebounds and eight assists.

In fact, Durant was mentioned more than 1 million times on Twitter during the series-clinching Game 5 win Tuesday night. If greatness was only defined by rings, then James Jones and James are on the same pedestal because Jones also has three rings- all of which were won with the King as a teammate.
