The Golden State Warriors win the championship and get revenge

Kevin Durant, who joined the team from the Oklahoma City Thunder before the season, led the way for the Warrriors with 39 points on the night and was named the most valuable player of the National Basketball Association finals.

That's what the Cavaliers must do after falling to the Warriors in the final for the second time in three seasons, having rallied from 3-1 down previous year to win the crown when James led the series in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks-another unprecedented feat. You've got to tip your hat to Cleveland.

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors reacts after a basket against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 12, 2017 in Oakland, California.

Wrapping up the series in five games meant the Warriors came through the post-season with a 16-1 record, with only the defeat in game four keeping them from perfection.

This time, James gave way to KD, who was the NBA Finals MVP 10 years after being picked second in the NBA draft behind Greg Oden.

The Cavs lost Game 5 of the NBA Finals to the Warriors Monday night, 129-120. "And I did that from day one, and I just tried to stay with that". The San Francisco Giants are tied with the Warriors with three, while the Oakland Raiders have two (not counting the Raiders' title during their stint in Los Angeles).

"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant said.

Furthermore, Kevin Durant became the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in the 2000 Finals to score 30 or more points in five straight Finals games.

Durant accepted that he was jittery before the final match.

Throughout these years it seemed that Durant wants a championship ring not because of himself, but as a gift to his mother and all the sacrifices that she made in order to provide a future for her son.

Even averaging a triple-double in the NBA Finals wasn't enough for LeBron to bring the series beyond five games. The Cavs proved that when they were healthy, they were the better team. And I just tried to do that, but also be aggressive. "No matter what anybody says from now on in your career, they can never take away from you being a champion". "So you don't know what's going to happen". That's insane. He may be 32 years old and have a ton of miles on his body, but outside of garbage time in Games 1 and 2, James rarely sat the bench.
