Golden State Warriors parade plans announced

After capturing the 2017 National Basketball Association championship on Monday, odds makers in Las Vegas gave them a historic price as a preseason favourite to once again hoist the Larry O'Brien Trophy in a year's time.

However, that idea fizzled fast when the Warriors opened with a pair of lopsided wins at home, fought back late to steal the next game in Cleveland and then, after dropping their first game of the post-season, closed out the series at home.

Not to mention he got a quick jab at his critics with a well-timed Nike commercial shorty after the confetti fell in Oracle Arena.

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.

James had a spectacular series, averaging 33.6 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists but it wasn't enough.

Monday night's episode of Jeopardy!, which was nearly certainly pre-recorded weeks or even months ago, ended up being well-timed for the Warriors' Game 5 win to become the 2017 NBA Champions.

Among the other first-time National Basketball Association champions was Warriors center Zaza Pachulia, the first player from the nation of Georgia to win an National Basketball Association title.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - They made their group plea to Kevin Durant last summer, Stephen Curry and the core of the Golden State Warriors traveling cross-country to go at a prized free agent the only way they do it around here: with "Strength in Numbers". "Like I said, tried to be myself, be aggressive and sacrifice as well". "Steph definitely took a back seat to start the season until he realized we didn't need him to take a back seat".

"Experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing", he said. The former Oklahoma City Thunder was the best player among the Warriors, and he was named as the MVP of the finals.

The Warriors-Cavaliers matchup marked the first time in league history two franchises have played in three consecutive Finals.

Overall, the Warriors are 207-39 during Kerr's tenure as coach. "I kept building on that from day one", Durant said. While James hasn't seen a dropoff in play yet, it's growing clear that he needs more help to get over the hump and beat the Warriors.

"I have no reason to put my head down", James said.

The 2017 NBA Finals showed that the Cavaliers aren't equipped to beat the Warriors as now assembled, and LeBron James is growing older with heavy mileage from his many trips to the NBA Finals combined with Olympic and other worldwide appearances.
