Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

He averaged 35 points a game as the Golden State Warriors clobbered the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time to win the title.

Curry embraced Durant's arrival after the Warriors dropped last year's finals to Cleveland in seven games, an unselfish attitude that reflected Durant's desires and created an inside-outside pairing that was almost unstoppable. After his decision to leave Oklahoma City for the Warriors, Durant's dream came true on Monday when Golden State beat Cleveland 129-120 to win the best-of-seven NBA Finals four games to one. And he looks forward to the nice payday.

The Golden State Warriors are NBA champions once again, and this time it's thanks largely to the newest addition to their starting five, Kevin Durant, who was awarded the NBA Finals MVP award for his play in the series.

"It would mean everything". "This is a moment we all need to enjoy together", he said.

Several members of the Warriors franchise publicly criticized the Trump administration in the weeks preceding the franchise's championship win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. It is a business. "But we were able to keep our eyes open to someone who could make this whole thing complete". He was the first player to embrace the first-time National Basketball Association champion after the final buzzer.

None of that was an issue for the Warriors as Durant has been called an unselfish player whose only desire was to do whatever is in the best interests of his team.

Trump blames Qatar for funding terror
Saudi Arabia , the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt have suspended all flights to and from Doha and closed off sea and air links to Qatar. Egypt and Bahrain branded as terrorists 59 people, including Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi.

The Warriors won their second championship in three years, but it will be their first victory under President Donald Trump. "But then all of a sudden you're faced with the reality that the man who's gonna lead you has routinely used racist, misogynist, insulting words". "It's easier said than done obviously, but that's the goal".

Later, he was straightforward and serious: "We were heartbroken last year, but this year was our turn".

While the National Basketball Association trade rumors connecting Paul George to the Cleveland Cavaliers have heated up in the wake of the Warriors finishing off the Cavaliers, there do not appear to be any solid reports connecting the two. "So you don't know what's going to happen". "We'll see how long". "The beauty of what I know of this team, we all want to provide for our families, we want to get all that we can out of this game while we still have the legs to do it, but there are no egos when it comes to that side of the equation when it comes to us as professional athletes". Stephen Curry and David West have also leveled criticism against the president.

CNBC sports personality Josh Brown reported on Twitter early this morning that the entire Golden State Warriors have unanimously agreed not to partake in the traditional White House visit, due to their opposition to President Trump: The two-time champions' distaste for Trump is no secret.

"Frankly, I think it's why Trump couldn't be more ill-suited to be president, because he's a blowhard", Kerr said in an interview. "And at the end of the day, no matter what anybody says from now on, they can never take away from you being a champion".

"We learned from everything we've been through", Curry said during the trophy celebration. It's about us supporting this championship.
