Golden State Warriors parade set for Thursday in Oakland

The Golden State Warriors were the top NBA seed after a 67-win season followed by a record 15-0 start to the playoffs

"I've never experienced a championship in front of our home court and I like this one a lot better", Warriors point guard Steph Curry said.

Barring a major shakeup to James' supporting cast or a move to another team, the three-times National Basketball Association champion may never find a way to solve a Golden State Warriors squad that just dominated the playoffs like no team ever before.

The Warriors won their second title in the past three seasons with a five-game victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers and are an overwhelming favorite at -200, according to Westgate SuperBook.

Following the Golden State Warriors' 129-120 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals that clinched their second title in three years, the headlines were all centered on Kevin Durant and how he claimed the Finals MVP. The answer after he failed to win a fourth National Basketball Association championship is no he is not.

LeBron James scored 41 points and Kyrie Irving added 26 for the Cavs, who had won four straight potential elimination games against the Warriors before running out of gas in Game 5. Curry can sign a deal worth $200 million if he returns to Golden State. And he looks forward to the nice payday.

Not many were happy with Kevin Durant's decision to join Golden State Warriors previous year.

"It would mean everything". "Obviously we had a let down a year ago". It is a business.

"To have teammates that encourage you, that lift you up, that's what we all need in life", he said.

It validated the notion of Warriors general manager Bob Myers, who risked what he had built counting on Durant to be the final piece in building a juggernaut. "He's had an awesome career, but he just took it to the next level", said Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.

"We felt like Kevin could come in and help us", he added.

"Well, it's a two-sided question because for me personally - I don't know", said James. "It's easier said than done obviously, but that's the goal".

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 past year after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games. Along with Curry that day were Iguodala, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. "Like I said, tried to be myself, be aggressive and sacrifice as well". "And we were making the extra pass and shooting with a lot of confidence". We'll see what happens. I'm just so happy Kevin has broken through.

The 2017 NBA Finals featured an all-time great individual battle between Durant and LeBron. Coach Steve Kerr also has been outspoken about issues with Trump. "We learned from everything we've been through", Curry said.

"But as far as that team, they're going to be here for a while". I've been able to accomplish that individually. "This is something we want to continue to do".
