Golden State Warriors parade set for Thursday in Oakland

Then he moved across the podium and hugged Stephen Curry before accepting his shiny MVP trophy, holding out his arms and hoisting it for everyone to see.

The rest of the world will little note nor long remember Memphis 110, Golden State 89 on December 10, 2016, in the FedExForum, but my two sons and I will.

"I don't know. I'm not a - I'm not the GM of the team".

It was the message that convinced the Oklahoma City Thunder star to leave the franchise and join the Warriors.

"So I would hope we're more ready, more prepared tonight".

Kyrie Irving followed up his 40-point gem in Game 4 with 26 points but shot 9 for 22.

LeBron James lost his fifth NBA Finals, but it surely wasn't due to a lack of effort, as he became the first player ever to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals series.

Durant drove left, right and down the middle, knocked down 3-pointers, dished and dunked. The closest the Cavaliers would come in the fourth quarter was three points (98-95) at the start of the period.

The Warriors won their second title in the past three seasons with a five-game victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers and are an overwhelming favorite at -200, according to Westgate SuperBook. The Warriors won 129-120 to.


Well, Durant got that first championship on Monday, and it didn't seem too hard.

The clock was winding down, the celebration cranking up, the Golden State Warriors putting the finishing touch on another National Basketball Association championship Monday night. He also took 27.9 percent of shot attempts from beyond the arc, a new playoff high for him. Not to mention a healthy one after his 2016 injuries. "You can't just always try to be the strongest; you have to be the smartest".

"They're going to be here for a while".

James has 16 points, Kyrie Irving has 12 and Tristan Thompson has eight for the Cavs.

"I do know me and KD had a conversation along with Draymond and Klay and Andre previous year before he even showed up that that was kind of the identity of who we are as a team that we understand how important it is, the guys that are here", Curry said. They were possibly the best team of all-time and certainly the best of the last 20 years.

Golden State used a 28-4 second-quarter run to take charge - just after it appeared Durant should have been called for a third foul on a basket by James - and got to celebrate right at home in Oakland surrounded by a deafening home crowd waving yellow rally towels and holding up phones to shoot video and photos as the final minute of the clock ticked away.

While the Warriors haven't formally met to discuss whether they will visit President Donald Trump's White House as is customary for championship teams, Curry said his mind hasn't changed from when he was asked earlier this year about the possibility.

James was also asked how he views the Warriors when he considers his future in the National Basketball Association. He was the best player in four of the previous five, maybe five of the last five, Finals.
