GSW win 2nd title in three seasons after victory over LeBron's Cavs


Completing a ideal 9-0 run at home during the postseason, the Warriors became the first San Francisco Bay Area team to win a championship at home since the Oakland Athletics won the 1974 World Series.

The Warriors have earned another spot in the National Basketball Association history book.

High-profile recruit Durant was the difference as the Warriors wrapped up a 4-1 series triumph on home court in Oakland. For Kevin Durant, it was the fulfillment of a promise he made to his mom when he was just 8 years old. Although it wasn't much of a surprise at who would appear in the finals, since these two "super-teams" have been going head to head in the finals as far back as 2015.

"I just wanted to come in there and just be me".

But he said: "It's a team sport".

Special counsel investigating Trump for obstruction
That conversation was reportedly detailed in a memo authored contemporaneously by Comey, whom Trump abruptly fired last month. Before the sacking, Mr Trump had sought and received assurances from Mr Comey that he personally was not under investigation.


This is obviously all speculation, but there's one accomplishment others can't take away from the Warriors. "To play with these guys is unbelievable". "And I know he wants to be here and we want him here".

"I told him we're tied up now and we're going to try to do this thing again but I'm going to celebrate this one tonight".

James said in a press conference screened on nba.com: "I'm not happy he won his first - I'm not happy at all".

But a stone-faced LeBron James refused to be drawn on his plans. Asked before the game if his team would approach the game as if it had "nothing to lose", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue responded, "We do have something to lose: a championship".

But as we all know, the Spurs just don't give a hoot about ratings or, for that matter, media attention of any kind.

What we know about the Congressional baseball victims
One Capitol Hill police officer also suffered a gunshot wound and another officer suffered a non-gunshot injury. Duncan said that as he left the field, the man who would later open fire approached him in the parking lot.


This is the third-consecutive GSW-Cavaliers contested Finals - a first in history.

It also created lofty expectations for Durant, with many onlookers saying his move would be a failure if the Warriors did not go on to win a title in their first season together.

James played averaged a triple-double during the NBA Finals, but it was not enough to prevent the Cavaliers from losing in five games to the Warriors following Monday's 129-120 loss in Oakland.

Additionally, the Warriors got double-digit scoring efforts from shooting guard Stephen Curry (34 points), shooting guard Klay Thompson (11), power forward Draymond Green (10) and reserve forward Andre Iguodala (20).

The Cavaliers' 49 points in the first quarter of game four were a record for a single quarter in any finals game.

Trump decries shooting of top Congressman
FBI investigators said they are now examining the possibility that the motive for the shooting was political. The president and first lady Melania Trump spent about half an hour at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.
