Golden State Are 2017 NBA Champs, Rout Cavaliers 4-1

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers to take home the National Basketball Association championship Monday night in a 129-120 victory. 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. And when Steph turned that corner, I think it was after Christmas Day, when he turned that corner, we became nearly unbeatable. "I was anxious, I was jittery".

"I just wanted to come in there and just be me".

Following Monday's win, he embraced his mother, Wanda Durant, on the court.

"I agree with that description if you remove the "et", said Curry, who has a sponsorship deal with the brand.

Earlier this week a report surfaced that Draymond Green had called Kevin Durant immediately after the Warriors lost to the Cavaliers in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals to try to convince KD to join the Warriors. Durant commanded and demanded the ball during his Finals domination and blasted through everyone who attempted to guard him, including LeBron James.

James, who in 2012 with Miami beat the Thunder in Durant's only other Finals, wound up with 41 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists.

At the time, Durant called the leadup to his decision the most challenging few weeks of his National Basketball Association career, and even said it was not about winning titles but about personal growth and quality-of-life choices. He punctuated that season with his famed "Baby Hook" to win Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Boston, giving the Lakers a 3-1 lead before they finished off their rivals two games later.

The answer: An emphatic no.

Durant and the Warriors seem to just be getting started. "But then that was far from the truth". "But tonight, was a little different, just based on the things I've had to go through during this time". Once the game got under three minutes, she was certain it was in hand. It's all about the group.

None of that was an issue for the Warriors as Durant has been called an unselfish player whose only desire was to do whatever is in the best interests of his team.

"So I just tried to think about that, but also add my flair to the game". Unbelievable coaches along the way, from college, Bob McKillop, to the NBA, Mark Jackson, obviously Steve Kerr, Don Nelson, guys that have instilled confidence in me and allowed me to be who I am as a basketball player.

"I said 'if there's a time to be rebuilding, this is the time to do it.' The Warriors don't look like they're going anywhere for a while".

Durant also had to navigate the stardom-sharing duties with Curry. Iguodala added 20 points. Milwaukee clobbered teams by 12.2 points per game and increased that to an NBA-best 14.5 per game in the postseason.

Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Steve Kerr will be back to coach the 2017-18 season. They're pretty darn good right now....

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.

Golden State has yet to confirm the decision.

For the third year in succession the two teams met in the Finals, but after going 3-0 down this time around, Cleveland were only able to pull one game back before the Warriors secured the trophy in game five.

"Winning is fantastic", Kerr said. "I've been so lucky to be part of so many championship teams as a player and now as a coach, and it never gets old". I put in work, I just had to trust in it.

But James had no regrets after the loss.
