Steve Kerr Joins Celtics Legends, Phil Jackson In Impressive NBA Finals Company

Would the Oklahoma City Thunder have supplanted them as the Western Conference kings, a scenario that looked so possible when they took the Warriors to seven games in the conference finals a year ago? Because Durant was already in the Bay Area, he made a decision to play photographer for a day at Super Bowl 50 on ... "I was anxious. I was jittery". "So for me personally, I have no reason to put my head down".

"We battled. But we did it. So for us to be able to do it in front of our home crowd, something I'll remember for a very long time".

But Durant's superhuman performance didn't just make him the Finals MVP nor just a champion.

A dominant 137-116 victory Friday, however, was not enough to discourage the 2015 champions, who had the best season in National Basketball Association history previous year with 73 wins.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr expressed his disappointment with the election results last November saying after the election that President Donald Trump regularly used "racist, misogynist, insulting words" during his campaign. "It's a combination of talent and an unselfish nature".

LeBron James finally gets his ring to cap off the lockout-shortened season as the Heat took down the Kevin Durant-led Thunder out in five games.

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

But James, in his seventh consecutive playoff series and eighth overall, fell to 3-5 in the championship round.

"Well I'm not happy he won his first, I'm not happy at all", James said. Maybe a little! I know better than to "be upset" at Durant for switching jobs else incur the wrath of 'liberated fandom'.

Two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry is expected to sign the richest contract in National Basketball Association history this offseason as the league's best three-point marksman will be eligible for a five-year deal worth an estimated $207 million.

"We learned from everything we've been through", Curry said during the presentation of the Larry O'Brien Trophy. I'm just excited to do something special.

Excitement was high for the contest. Thompson and Smith confronted West and all three of those players got technical fouls. He knocked down a 17-foot fadeaway over James early in the fourth quarter, then assisted on a three-pointer by Andre Iguodala the next time down as the Warriors pulled away. Then it was Golden State's time again, with Durant as the prized addition.

Kevin Durant won the 2017 NBA Championship as a member of the Golden State Warriors on Monday night.

"We did it", Durant said. "I can't wait to celebrate with my teammates". Malone averaged 24.5 points and a league-leading 15.3 rebounds while winning his second straight MVP award and made his boast that the 76ers would sweep every series in four games.

Irving and James turned back-to-back steals into impressive tone-setting layups as part of a 16-3 Cleveland run for an 20-12 edge, James hitting 4-of-5 for 10 points at the start. On the other, nothing can happen as Golden State has a firm grip on title contention and the Bulls are so far away from relevance. Golden State is the best long-distance shooting team in league history and it's not even close. Cleveland is considered to be Golden State's biggest challenger, followed by the San Antonio Spurs and Boston Celtics.

"I mean, you average over 30 points a game in a Finals?"

His crucial game three-winning "dagger" shot on the road in Cleveland had put the Warriors on the brink of the title with a 3-0 lead.
