Warriors beat Cavaliers to clinch NBA title

Warriors beat Cavaliers to clinch NBA titleā€

They signed Klay Thompson and Draymond Green to extensions and were still able afford to bring in free agent Kevin Durant for more than $26 million this season.

"I don't know. I probably won't", West said. "I was anxious, I was jittery". And I just tried to do that, but also be aggressive.

A super team is when a few really good players play on the same team. Their one title came previous year when the Cavs became the first team to rally from a 3-1 Finals deficit to win the city's first major title since 1964.

Warriors star Stephen Curry celebrated his second championship with his adorable daughters, Riley (left) and Ryan. "I'm not happy at all", said James, the first player in NBA Finals history to average a triple-double.

Durant - drafted as second-overall pick by the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007 - was an easy choice for the Finals MVP. "Adding (George) to the mix might be the closest thing we could see to another team challenging (Golden State) next year", Sherman said, before adding that the Warriors would still be the favourites.

On the way to his first NBA Championship, Warriors forward Kevin Durant scored 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting, including a five-of-eight showing from three-point range, to go along with seven rebounds, five assists and one steal.

History will always note that Durant's first championship came against James.

It's been just two days since the official end of the 2016-2017 National Basketball Association season and LeBron is already grinding. "But we prevailed, we're champions and it's fantastic doing it on our home floor". He's now making his anti-Trump feelings known, and I think his teammates will get in line behind him - not that they needed much persuasion.

"I just try to do everything to help this team win and more", James said.

The plus-minus metric was not available in Michael Jordan's day when he won six NBA Finals in six trips in the 1990s. Then it was Golden State's turn again, taking the title in five games. "I have no reason to put my head down". ". I'm sure we will have a conversation about it pretty soon".
