Warriors Win Title, LeBron Contemplates Future

The Warriors won 129-120 t.

Durant knows how fleeting the victory might be, and the next phase is to "beat him to the gym" in July to get ready for next season.

The Warriors, who beat Cleveland in the 2015 NBA Finals only to lose to them a year ago after squandering a 3-1 series lead, went a record-setting 15-1 in the playoffs, their only loss coming in Game 4 of the best-of-seven championship. Did Durant take the path of least resistance to his first title? It's one thing to just say the Cavs are good enough to walk through the East, it's another thing to do it.

"Teams and franchises are going to be trying to figure out ways that they can put personnel together, the right group of guys together to be able to hopefully compete against this team", James said. They don't care, because 16-1 will do. It took a combination of injury (a hobbled Stephen Curry, the two-time MVP) and suspension (Draymond Green, the team's engine) for the Cavaliers to have just the chance to win last season's Finals-which, to their wholly deserved credit, they somehow did. Overcame a 63-point performance from Michael Jordan in a first-round sweep of Chicago, but had to settle for beating Houston in the NBA Finals after the Rockets knocked off the hated Lakers in the West finals. Then it was Golden State's turn again, taking the title in five games. Ended up losing by five.

Turns out the Warriors have two of them for what seems destined to be the beginning of a handsome friendship. Durant made the biggest basket of the bunch, a three-pointer. The premiere of unscripted series "Superhuman" followed with a 0.7 and 2.6 million viewers.

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. "So for me personally I have nothing to be - I have no reason to put my head down". But at the end of the day, from when I played him in the 2012 Finals to now, like I said, experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing and experiencing.

And then he talked about how young the Warriors are. I came in and tried to help my team. Of course not. He is still playing basketball at the highest possible level, continuing to play it with consummate team values. There is already a lot of chatter about that.

They Warriors and Durant weren't just the flawless match - they were necessary components.

"It was 55 seconds left, and I went other over to half court line and I bent down, and I'm like, is this really happening?"

Are the Warriors are the best team in National Basketball Association history? .

For a handful of team that are close to the top, such as Houston or San Antonio, teams with elite players in their prime, they need to be thinking about winning right now. They're going to be around for a while. "Because they're built for. from my eyes, they're built to last a few years".

We'll all see. Maybe it means that the Cavs do go out and find a way to sign George. "He's one of the best professionals I've ever been around".

Still: It's amusing how these things work out.

When he accepted his Finals MVP award, he had one more message for her: "We did it".

"The way that he embraced the opportunity in the Finals, it was unbelievable", Curry said.
