Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry Help Bring NBA Title Back to Oakland


"It's a team sport", Durant insisted after the Warriors had closed out James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals to win the best-of-seven series 4-1.

Stephen Curry added 34 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals as Golden State closed out its second title in three years after squandering a 3-1 lead a year ago to the Cavs to miss a repeat.

Monday night's win, which gave Golden State their second National Basketball Association title in the past three seasons, capped a near-perfect run through this year's playoffs and avenged last year's loss to LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers.

The House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, has invited the Golden State Warriors to visit the Capitol amid speculation the newly crowned National Basketball Association champions may skip the traditional White House visit. Along with Curry that day were Iguodala, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

OAKLAND, USA - Kevin Durant came to Golden State looking for a championship and found a band of brothers who, as it turned out, were exactly what he needed to finally capture that long-sought title.

Did LeBron have a case for Finals MVP?: This may be a stretch with how dominant Kevin Durant was. During his 2014 NBA MVP speech, Durant gave his mother all the props for his success, which spawned some of the Internet's most hilarious memes.

When Durant spoke with Nash about potentially joining Golden State, the once-electrifying point guard said it seemed like a good fit for him to grow as a person.

Coach Steve Kerr called Trump a "blowhard" and said he "couldn't be more ill-suited to be president". I need to sit down and figure this thing out.

"I just wanted to lay it all out there". Today is about celebrating our championship.

"I told him, 'When you play with force, I've never seen a player like you, '" Durant said of Curry.

Even in defeat, LeBron James became the first player in history to average a triple-double in the finals - 33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists per game.
