Golden State Are 2017 NBA Champs, Rout Cavaliers 4-1

And as Sports Illustrated writer Ben Golliver noted, LeBron James will certainly need something more to compete with the Warriors, who have Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green all remaining with the team for years to come and all at their peak.

- Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant is an National Basketball Association champion and the league's MVP.

Durant averaged 35 points, eight rebounds and five assists per game, but the impressive part is he did it shooting 56 percent from the field.

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

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

The Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers to capture their second championship in three seasons on Monday night, prompting conjecture over whether the team would make the traditional visit after several key members spoke out against Trump during the campaign and his presidency.

Before the start of the 2017 NBA Finals, the Westgate SuperBook tipped Warriors as a minus-160 favourite to win next year's championship. The Warriors also posted a 16-1 record (.941 win percentage) in these playoffs to go on the best title run ever, percentage points better than the 2001 Lakers (15-1, .938). "I'm confident we'll have him back. When you didn't eat, you made sure we ate and [you] went to sleep hungry".

ABC will likely see final adjustments from Nielsen secure the series as its most-watched (on average) in almost 20 years, though the series' conclusion won't reach the highs of last year's Game 7.

For James, already a three-time champion, the loss puts him in rare company as only the fourth player to come up short in five NBA Finals.

An unprecedented third straight Finals clash between the Warriors and Cavaliers was hyped as the ultimate championship rubber match and expected to be the antidote for a postseason that had little in the way of drama.

"I played against some really, really good teams that were assembled perfectly, and they're right up there".
