My 2 Cents: Kevin Durant Wins Championship With The Warriors

Golden State took the best-of-seven series 4-1, reclaiming the throne they lost to the Cavaliers a year ago.

After a night of celebrating the Golden State Warriors latest National Basketball Association title, fans snapped up victory shirts and hats Tuesday, while Oakland crews were busy hanging championship banners along the parade route. Two championships in three years.

"Everybody for the last 10 years knew how good he was but until you break through and win that first championship there's still something there".

The Cleveland Cavaliers almost were swept by the Golden State Warriors despite taking an 11-1 record into the NBA Finals, losing the series Monday by a score of 129-120 in Game 5.

James turned to the officials, saying he had been fouled.

"There's some games I might not get shots, as many shots as I'm used to getting".

Amid Jason Day's opinions about Erin Hills and his prospects for the 117th U.S. Open, there was on Tuesday the inevitable question, with apologies, about his beloved Cleveland Cavaliers. "See what we're missing", Green says, recounting the text message he sent Durant.

Knowing Durant had to be careful, LeBron James drove to the rim and threw down a vicious dunk over the Warriors star that gave the Cavaliers a 41-33 lead with less than two minutes gone in the second quarter. Now, he's set to sign a new Designated Player Veteran Contract, which will be worth around $205 million over five years - a deal that beats any other team could offer by roughly $75 million.

"So I just tried to think about that, but also add my flair to the game".

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was asked multiple times about President Trump this season, with Kerr last month calling him a "blowhard" and said he was "ill-suited" for the presidency. Centers Zaza Pachulia and Javale McGee will both be free agents as well, and both are likely to get better financial offers elsewhere this summer. Los Angeles Lakers legend Jerry West, who is silhouetted on the National Basketball Association logo, failed to win a title until his 12th season after losing to the Boston Celtics six times and once to the New York Knicks. "But tonight was a little different, just based on the things I've had to go through during this time". He became the third player to ever win Finals MVP in his first year with the team, joining Magic Johnson (1980) and Moses Malone (1983), while also becoming the third player ever to win four scoring titles and a ring, along with Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain.

It's entirely possible that if invited, some members of the team wouldn't go as evidenced by past comments made by members of their organization.

You don't need this, but I'm a Kobe guy, I can't help it.
