Never Played For A Super Team? Twitter Roasts LeBron's Post Game Comment

Against Golden State, he met an army of players constructed just to stop him, and LeBron still put in a superhuman effort the likes of which we've literally never seen before.

In the immediate aftermath of Kevin Durant's decision to join the Golden State Warriors last July, Stephen A. Smith took to Twitter to share his thoughts about what he called a "weak" move by Durant. The Warriors beat Durant.

While there was an inevitability about the Warriors' title this year, there was still just enough intrigue to make the series captivating.

Since the Finals loss to James and the Miami Heat in the 2011-12 season, Durant has had a chip on his shoulder and beating James this time around has changed the dynamic. 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. They don't care, because 16-1 will do. Pretty much all their big-name guys are in their 20s, and they don't show any signs of slowing down. But he just spent the NBA Finals playing that way. He drilled threes when the Cavs needed them most, played defense on three of the most potent offensive players in the National Basketball Association, and when no one else was open, he threw up an alley-oop to himself.

Two years prior, West opted out of the final of year of his Indiana Pacers contract and left $12 million on the table in pursuit of a dream, an National Basketball Association championship, that is. The Cavs were ahead by six.

Durant drove left, right and down the middle, knocked down three-pointers, dished and dunked.

The Warriors followed up their 2015 title by winning a record 73 regular-season games in the 2015-16 campaign, but stumbled with a 3-1 finals lead and fell victim to the greatest comeback in finals history by Cleveland. "They showcased that throughout the postseason, and we were another opponent in their way". But Durant, being a team player as well as a scoring machine, made the Warriors better from day one. There it was, too, at the end on Monday in Game 5, when he played like a kid who didn't want the game to end, who played like a kid running out of daylight, and kept going to the basket again and again and trying to keep his season alive.

"Getting that first championship for me was like having my first son", James said after Game 5. I came in and tried to help my team.

Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant finished with 39 points, seven rebounds, five assists and one steal during Monday's Game 5 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
