Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

He averaged 35 points a game as the Golden State Warriors clobbered the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Charlotte native helped the team Monday night win its second NBA Finals championship in three years, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120. And he looks forward to the nice payday.

Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors was named the NBA Finals MVP for 2017 on Tuesday.

"It would mean everything". "We need you. Make it happen". The victory marks Curry's second championship with his team in the past three years. It is a business.

"It's hard to compare to what that feeling was the first time, but it's pretty close", Curry said. It's the surest path to success for anyone on his team.

"If LeBron James had beaten the Golden St Warriors he'd have surpassed Michael Jordan and been the greatest of all time".

WD: [When Kevin was a child], he came to me and said, "Mom, I want to be a professional basketball player". It's easier said than done, obviously, but that's the goal. "We want to keep this thing together and see how we can continue to keep getting better".

Each year at the start of the playoffs, James swears off social media until a day (or more) after the postseason ends. Along with Curry that day were Iguodala, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

British Airways doesn't blame Indian firm for flight disruption
Many of the Irish airline's customers switch to long-haul services offered by BA from Heathrow. "It's been a awful , bad day". Captain Stephen Wearing told The Telegraph that the scene that greeted him at Heathrow was "the worst chaos I've ever seen".

They made their group plea to Kevin Durant last summer, Stephen Curry and the core of the Golden State Warriors traveling cross-country to go at a prized free agent the only way they do it around here: with "Strength in Numbers". Come on-you know King James better than that. "And we are going to move forward with that when we have a chance to".

I probably wouldn't have been so sour about the win if the Warriors had won in seven, but the domination frustrated me.

"I've got nothing but love and respect for him and I can't wait to compete against him again next season".

Members of the Super champion New England Patriots and national college football champion Clemson have visited the White House for championship celebrations since Trump took office.

Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry on a team that won it all in 2015 and were runners-up previous year after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games.

Both coach Steve Kerr and star Steph Curry have not been shy about their disapproval of Trump.

League sources told ESPN earlier this month that Durant, who holds a player option for the 2017-18 season, is willing to take less to help retain the core of the team.
