Golden State Warriors' MVP Kevin Durant adds an important title: champion

For the third year in succession the two teams met in the Finals, but after going 3-0 down this time around, Cleveland were only able to pull one game back before the Warriors secured the trophy in game five.

This time Riley was joined by her 1-year-old sister, Ryan, whom Stephen held in his arms as the cheers rained down for Golden State's second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons following a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

When Kevin Durant departed from Oklahoma City to join Golden State last summer, this was precisely why he did it, to win at the highest level, the NBA Finals.

Quickly ending speculation just a few hours after their victory in the National Basketball Association championships Monday night, the entire Golden State Warriors organization has reportedly decided they won't visit the White House, bucking tradition for championship sports teams.

The Warriors have been critical of President Trump and his policies since his rise to power, with head coach Steve Kerr and star guard Stephen Curry leading the charge.

To win his first championship Durant had to go through the game's greatest player in Cavaliers forward LeBron James, who he defended for most of the five games.

LeBron James may be the best player on the planet but he doesn't play for the best team.

Xbox One X Comes as the Most Powerful Console Nowadays
Speaking to Eurogamer , Spencer was asked whether he is anxious about the Xbox One X costing $100 (£78) more than the PS4 Pro . Phil Spencer has been outspoken in the past about his dislike of "console wars", and today he reiterated that stance.

Golden State in 2015, the Cavaliers a year ago, the Warriors again this time.

"Experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing and experiencing", said James. "And at the end of the day, no matter what anybody says from now on, they can never take away from you being a champion".

Kerr returned to coach the last four games of the NBA Finals after taking time off since the middle of the first round of the playoffs in hopes of finding a remedy to the nausea and migraines he was experiencing stemming from back surgery from almost two years ago.

"I left everything on the floor every game, all five games", he said.

It wasn't just that Durant scored a lot of points, but how and when he scored them.

Durant entered the NBA Finals as an eight-time All-Star, an All-Star Game MVP and an NBA MVP. He dramatically drove and dunked on Cleveland's defense, knocked down big 3-pointers and blocked shots while handling the load of defending King James. "I think we handle (the White House situation) when it gets there".

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