Curry, Durant committed to keeping Golden State on top

Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, Zaza Pachulia, David West and JaVale McGee will be among many Golden State players in the free-agent waters, and Kevin Durant will likely join them.

In fact, it would have been far worse than previous year as the Cavaliers would have been the first team to come back from tan 0-3 in the NBA Finals.

The Warriors are headed to San Francisco, where they broke ground this year on a new arena slated to open in 2019.

The other L.A. -based team would be the Clippers.

But Thursday the city will make headlines for good news.

"It's hard to compare to what that feeling was the first time, but it's pretty darn close", Curry said. "So they deserve a lot more credit than 'well they're talented, they're supposed to win.' That is disrespectful to them in my book, they're way, way more than just their talent". Since 1996, only three teams averaged at least 112.0 points throughout the playoffs - the 2016-17 Cleveland Cavaliers (116.2 in 18 games played), the 2013-14 Houston Rockets (112.0 in six games played) and the 2004-05 Phoenix Suns (112.0 in 15 games played). He got off his bus and hopped and shouted as he gave high fives to the crowd. Durant also received the Bill Russell trophy as the 2017 NBA Finals MVP. The beauty of what I know of this team, we all want to provide for our families, we want to get all that we can out of this game while we still have the legs to do it, but there are no egos when it comes to that side of the equation when it comes to us as professional athletes.”.

Fans light a LeBron James jersey on fire after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 5 of the NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., on Monday June 12, 2017. How did Curry react? "But everything that we went through as a team, individually, as an organization makes this day so much sweeter". Then they went 16-1 in the playoffs, beating the Cavs for the title in five games despite an historic performance by LeBron James.

"We don't even have to speak about it", Iguodala said.

The parade wound through downtown Oakland before the rally near Lake Merritt. The Cavs buried eight of their first 10 shots, attacked the basket relentlessly and took an early lead that sent feelings of trepidation through Oracle Arena.

Durant averaged 35.2 points over the five-game series against the Cavaliers.

"He's so great. He's so great, joining that team, to me, was nearly unfair", Smith said per The Washington Post.

Green had sat out this very game a year ago, suspended because of flagrant foul point accumulation after he swiped at James' groin in Game 4.

Golden State proved it could beat LeBron James at his best, avenge a nightmare against the Cavaliers last season and enter in the conversation as one of this generation's best National Basketball Association teams. The Golden State Warriors closed out their regular season with a phenomenal 73 wins to 9 losses, breaking the record set by the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls of 1995-96.

Wherever he ends up, James is sure the Warriors will be back to defend the championship title.

"Oakland represents all of us", Kerr told KTVU.

"Just the camaraderie, the togetherness, that's what it was about".

To paraphrase the late, great sports writer Frank Deford with a modern twist, you can yell on social media and scream on TV about who the greatest is, but no one truly knows.

"It's still in the Bay", he said.

If we're going to judge player on rings, this is what you get.
