Warriors beat Cavaliers to win title

People from all around the world also did.

By contrast, NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant, who joined the Warriors last July, has a supporting cast that won a record-setting 73 regular season games last season.

The first-time title victor scored 39 points as point guard Stephen Curry posted 34 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. Instead, the Cleveland Cavaliers took the crown last season on the Warriors' home floor, spoiling the planned celebrations of many including Stephen Curry, who had a cigar lined up for a postgame celebration that never came about.

Up until the post-game presscon, James remained defiant that the Cavs were capable of beating the Warriors team that dominated them in four of five games. He proved that in the NBA Finals against the Cavaliers, being the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 to score at least 30 points in each of the first five games of the series. He was second behind the Boston Celtics' Isaiah Thomas, who finished the postseason with six techs.

"I'm telling you, I had this whole document ready".

Draymond Green stayed on the court in a game that featured three technicals on one play 3:08 before halftime.

After joining the Warriors in July 2016 - a decision which caused shockwaves in the National Basketball Association world among talk of a GSW "super team" - it took Durant just one season to win his first championship. David West fought for the ball with Irving, then they got tangled up and Tristan Thompson entered the fray and he and West went at each other face-to-face.

What made them great: A team that was on a vengeance all season after losing in the playoffs in 1995 when Jordan returned from baseball, they became the first team to win 70 games. And as had been the case in the first three games, it was Durant (21 first half points) and Curry (20 first half points, five assists, four rebounds) leading the way. "I feel wonderful, I was here last year for Game 7 and it's been such a let down, so I've been waiting a year for this moment", one Warriors fan said.

"(We have to) try to even it up again next year", said Swish after the loss.

Up Next - An offseason trying to figure out a way to return to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year - and beat the Warriors when they get there.

During the trophy ceremony, Kerr said, "I want to say a special thank you to Mike Brown and my whole coaching staff". But in the end, James fell short.

He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2018 but no matter where James decides to play it is unlikely he can steer clear of a Warriors team positioned for greatness.

BART officials also issued 10 tips for Warriors fans visiting the parade, including using the 19th Street station and avoiding the much smaller Lake Merritt station, buying a Clipper card to avoid long lines at ticket machines, and avoiding the busiest hours of 8-10 a.m.
