Kevin Durant sends love to Rihanna after Warriors win title

There also are some other matters of business around the league to clear up this season. "And two years ago, he went to the bench and it rewarded him - he was Finals MVP". And indications are it's not going away.

Veteran power forward David West told The Undefeated's Mark Spears he would "probably" decline any invitation to the residence occupied by a man who said Mexican immigrants brought "drugs" and "crime" to the United States and continues to try to push through a travel ban targeting Muslims - an executive order that every court that has had a chance to view, including a federal court in the Warriors' home town of San Francisco, has assessed as unconstitutional.

But throw in a 65-17 regular season, and the Warriors went 81-18 after Kevin Durant joined them, an impressive start to finish after their collapse in last year's Finals that prevented them from winning three straight championships. Myers told Durant, "Without you, we can (win) another title or two". However, it was Durant, not Curry, who won the Finals MVP.

Through Game 4, and with minor lifts from streaming, the Finals had been averaging 19.8 million viewers.

"We weren't supposed to be here", Kevin Durant said.

Green points to that Christmas Day loss as the turning point when everything just fell into place. Humbly, I congratulate you man, on finally getting your ring. Sounds like a fair trade.

Stephen Curry is 29, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are 27, Kevin Durant is only 28. Yes, they drafted wisely and built soundly.

But it was Durant, who left Oklahoma City for Oakland at the end of last season, who carried the team. Assuming Durant and Curry re-up, the Warriors are heavy favorites to repeat in 2018. They approached the insane grind and pressure of the National Basketball Association and made it look easy, fusing talent with cooperation, flair, humour and grace. But remember Wilt Chamberlain's claim: "Everybody pulls for David". That's the second most streamed National Basketball Association game ever according to ESPN, with only Game 7 of the 2016 finals topping it. Keeping James' promise to bring a championship to Cleveland, the Cavs went on to win the 2016 series with a hard fought Game 7 on June 19. " ... I don't think it's fair to minimize what Kevin offers Golden State, and what they offered him, to say that it was the weakest move in National Basketball Association history". "Some teams wouldn't embrace a guy who came into a situation like ours". "I need to sit down and figure this thing out", said James. Pretty much all their big-name guys are in their 20s, and they don't show any signs of slowing down. They were always going to win. Though they are not apples to apples in comparison, that championship victor snared an 18.9 MM result, or up 18% from last night's clincher.

He was asked postgame to compare the 2015 Finals win to the current one. But he debated the super-team notion.

"They're assembled as good as you can assemble, and I played against some really, really good teams that was assembled perfectly, and they're right up there". To be back here, bring ol' Larry back home, I'm just excited to do something special.

The Warriors swept through the Western Conference playoffs, no easy feat.

Already a 73-win team and coming off a heartbreaking NBA Finals in which they coughed up a 3-1 series lead, the Warriors seemed to have it all - talent, depth, and motivation to spare. And don't be Vinnie from Bayonne: "New Orleans should trade Anthony Davis to Cleveland for Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert, Edy Tavares and Derrick Williams". It's what our fans want to see, it's what we provide in this league. "I heard all the narratives throughout the season that I was ... hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work, but that was far from the truth".
