Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors


Curry's comment came two days after Golden State defeated Cleveland 129-120 to wrap up their series in five games and earn their second National Basketball Association championship in three years.

Durant, who lost in his only previous Finals appearance in 2012, led the way for the Warriors with 39 points and was relieved after feeling pressure to deliver prior to the game.

The adorable 4-year-old daughter of Warriors star Stephen Curry, who stole the show with her press conference antics during Golden State's championship run in 2015, was back in the spotlight celebrating another championship with dad.

"We're going down as one of the best teams ever and that's a special thing you can not take away from us", Warriors reserve Andre Iguodala said.

There aren't usually words for that kind of sacrifice, but Kevin Durant found just the right ones, when he gave his mom a tearful shoutout in his acceptance speech for the NBA's Most Valuable Player Award three years ago.

Kevin Durant was also named the MVP, scoring more than 30 points in all five games.

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

Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry in a team that won it all in 2015 and were runners-up past year after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games. "I'm just so happy to be a part of it".

"The toughest challenge was to come in here and see how I can help this team get better", Durant said.

For James, already a three-times champion, the loss puts him in rare company as only the fourth player to come up short in five NBA Finals.

"I just try to put in the work", James said. That's something I talked about coming into the league, wanting to do it year in and year out. "I'm proud of you".

Durant then stepped closer, all smiles, as doting fans slapped him on the back and grabbed him by the shoulder, as they started to chant, "MVP!"

"The last couple of days I've thought about it [his future]".

Both are outspoken Christians and say they recognize that their talent comes from God.
