  • Stephen Curry says he likely would not attend potential Warriors White House visit

The Golden State Warriors twirled T-shirts over their heads and waved to the crowd from atop double-decker buses as blue and yellow confetti rained down on them during a parade Thursday to celebrate the team's latest championship.

For Stephen Curry and the rest of the returning Warriors, it was redemption for last year's upset loss to Cleveland in the Finals.

After being labelled all season as one of the greatest teams ever assembled, they fulfilled their destiny and bulldozed every team that stood in their way, finishing with a 4-1 demolition of the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers.

The jubilant players hoisted the Larry O'Brien Trophy and gave high fives to their fans as confetti filled the air.

The championship was the first of forward Kevin Durant's career, and the NBA Finals MVP soaked in the moment.

Following Trump's electoral win in November, much of the dismay expressed in the sports world came from National Basketball Association coaches, including Golden State's Steve Kerr, and players.

As for the Golden State, it's quite obvious that for the team to preserve their winning tradition management will need to be willing to pay the price.

"I remember exactly where I was this time past year, and it wasn't a great feeling", Curry told the crowd at a rally after the parade. What will they do to get back to the Finals for a fourth straight year, but more importantly, what kind of team will they build to beat Golden State?

"We've overcome a lot of doubts", said Tulio Zelada, 28, a San Francisco resident who attended the parade.

Trump lashes out at 'bad,' 'conflicted' Russia investigators
Durbin, speaking on WGN radio, said he hoped the response to Trump firing Mueller would be bipartisan if it occurred. The Mueller investigation appeared to be reaching a broadening circle of current and former officials.

Everyone outside of the Warriors fan base questioned the move, including myself.

Green interacted with the crowd on numerous occasions as the parade meandered through the streets of Oakland, where excited fans serenaded the players.

During the parade Green attempted to troll the Cavs by wearing a shirt that said "Quickie" across the front with the image of the Q taken from the logo used by the Cavs and Quicken Loans Arena.

Green also told reporters that James was the one who started the concept of a super team and he has no right to say that he has never joined and organized one.

James teamed up with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012.

"Maybe he doesn't invite us, and we don't go, or we don't say anything and make a big deal of it, and he doesn't make a big deal of it, and we go our separate ways", Iguodala told. After re-signing Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant to their max or near-max deals, the Dubs are going to have to find players at discounted rates. Unsurprisingly, heated discussions began immediately regarding Durant's legacy, how the Warriors pulled off the move, and how it would shift the balance of power in National Basketball Association for years to come.

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

The only legitimate thing you can hate about this team is the way that KD went to Golden State.
