Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

Isaac Mcdaniel | 16 June, 2017, 06:39

After the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers traded championships in 2015 and 2016, they could never agree on one key thing.

The third time around, there was no doubt.

Durant scored 39 points, 11 of which came in the 4th quarter as he helped his Warriors team stave off a dogged Cavalier performance with a 129-120 victory to clinch the National Basketball Association title. "It's kind of insane to think about the conversations we had this summer and going into the year about how we can both mesh and do what we do and be the players that we are and (to) see it come to life in this series, it was unbelievable".

But as Curry noted after winning this title: "We're obviously just getting started". "And I know he wants to be here and we want him here".

In last year's championship series the Cavs roared back from a 3-1 deficit to spoil the Warriors' record-setting 73-win season. At the time, his long-term durability was a question mark; now we know the deal was an incredible bargain for the Warriors. "And we are going to move forward with that when we have a chance to".

However, 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. Though those two were the focal point of their offense, one can not exclude the enormous contributions of Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green with the latter scoring 10 points while grabbing 12 rebounds and dishing out 5 assists.

"First of all, if everybody wanted Steph, he would have been the No. 1 pick", Durant said. "And they waited until late to do it". The team's four All-Stars shared the scoring wealth and played tough defense.

The next movie to come out from the Dark Universe is Bride of Frankenstein to be directed by Bill Condon ( Beauty and the Beast ). But critics slammed the film , directed by Alex Kurtzman; it has a dismal 17 percent "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes .

But in case there's any concern among Warriors fans, recent comments by one of the people who would be paying that contract should come as excellent news. But it could have been so much better for Cleveland. "It was phenomenal to be a part of".

But it was LeBron James who briefly stole the show with an Instagram post. The man averaged a damn triple-double in the Finals - 33.6 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists a night - while shooting 56 percent from the field and 39 percent from three.

"I do know me and KD had a conversation along with Draymond and Klay and Andre past year before he even showed up that that was kind of the identity of who we are as a team that we understand how important it is, the guys that are here", Curry said.

"For me personally, I left everything on the floor every game, all five games". Even with all their talent it wasn't easy, as Boston needed seven games to beat Philadelphia in the Eastern Division finals and then seven more in the NBA Finals - the last going to overtime - to beat Los Angeles.

The Cavaliers shot 53.4 percent from the field and 45.8 percent on 3-pointers, but were outrebounded 42-40 and outscored 23-15 at the free-throw line.

"I mean, come on, you got a bunch of guys who are talented and can shoot and pass and dribble, and they're unselfish", Kerr said. Not if you ask Oakland.
