Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry lead Warriors to NBA title

The Warriors won the 2015 National Basketball Association championship but failed to repeat a year ago after blowing a 3-1 finals lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

While Golden State was certainly Stephen Curry's team after back-to-back MVP campaigns, Durant now appears to be the engineer of a freight train that's far from slowing down and he's unquestionably the heir to the throne James has occupied for so many years. "To be back here and bring gold Larry (the O'Brien trophy) back home, I'm just excited to be a part of this group and accomplish something special".

In 2012, LeBron James sought out Kevin Durant after the Miami Heat had wrapped up a 4-1 NBA Finals series win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Cavaliers SF LeBron James played in his 217th career postseason game, moving past C Shaquille O'Neal for seventh place on the all-time list.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant with the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP award. Durant came to the Warriors to be the guy who could allow them to meet and overcome James's unrelenting talent and will. JR Smith added 25 points and seven 3-pointers. Durant joined the Warriors at the start of the season, and alongside Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, the team has become the most dominant in the National Basketball Association. "... Getting that first championship for me was like having my first son".

James hit a layup to open the fourth quarter and pull Cleveland within 98-95, as close as the Cavs had been in the second half after trailing by 17 in the first half.




Newly minted Warriors star Kevin Durant, who scored 39 points in the game, was named the Finals most valuable player (MVP). Not to mention a healthy one after his 2016 injuries.

Green stayed on the court in a game that featured three technicals on one play 3:08 before halftime.

"I have no reason to put my head down", said James, who finished with averages of 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists in the five-game series.

After shooting 55.6 percent and contributing 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists to the five-game domination, he now has a new title. "Now we're champs again". Don't count out a repeat once more next season. "Steve will be our coach". The season could not have ended any better for Durant after joining the Warriors in free agency.

Two playful superstars who found a way to coexist through all the questions and constant scrutiny, together and smiling as champions.

The Warriors inbounded the ball and let the clock run out, and both Warriors fans and Cavaliers bettors started their celebrations.
