Messi, Neymar and Barcelona congratulate NBA champions Warriors

Kevin Durant hugged his mom in the moments after victory in Game Five of the NBA Finals brought him his first championship.

When asked earlier if the season if he'd visit the White House should his team win, Warriors guard Shaun Livingston said he'd skip the ceremony. The 2017 NBA Finals MVP was brilliant in the series, averaging 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 5.4 assists.

KD was relentless on both sides of the court, playing a menacing defence and igniting the league's best offence.

With Monday's 129-120 win over the Cavaliers, Golden State didn't just claim its second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons.

The Warriors have not made an official announcement, but head coach Steve Kerr and several players have been openly critical of Trump and his policies.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who played on the 1995-96 Bulls, had the ideal response to these comments.

It also created lofty expectations for Durant, with many onlookers saying his move would be a failure if the Warriors did not go on to win a title in their first season together.

But as we all know, the Spurs just don't give a hoot about ratings or, for that matter, media attention of any kind.

The rubber match between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors wasn't the epic series some hoped, but it was a ratings bonanza.

The 2017 NBA Finals showed that the Cavaliers aren't equipped to beat the Warriors as now assembled, and LeBron James is growing older with heavy mileage from his many trips to the NBA Finals combined with Olympic and other global appearances.

However, Andre Iguodala assisted a Durant dunk and added one of his own off a Curry feed, reopening a double-digit lead and making the final 7:42 an extended celebration among the Oracle Arena fans.

For the next several months, Dub Nation will only grow stronger while the attacks on LeBron James' legacy only grow louder.

Ben Cafardo of ESPN announced Tuesday the 2017 NBA Finals had the highest rating of any since 1998, Michael Jordan's last season with the Chicago Bulls.
