On the way to his first NBA Championship, Durant scored 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting, including a five-of-eight performance from three-point range, to go along with seven rebounds, five assists and one steal.
Durant was already one of the greatest players in National Basketball Association history before his move to the Warriors after collecting the scoring title four times and picking up MVPs honors in 2014.
Green addressed the super team chatter while addressing the crowd just days after Cleveland's LeBron James - who played with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami - referenced that he had never played on a super team. "But honestly, that's something we'll worry about at the time".
"Kevin's journey, our team embraced him. It looks like it was easy, but guys like Steph Curry welcoming him and kind of let him shine - it worked out like it should", Myers said. Then it became that the Warriors needed Durant to beat LeBron, despite the fact they've recruited him for years, and that Cavs fans only choose to bring up Kyrie as LeBron's teammate when mentioning his injury in 2015. You dont want anybody to have to sacrifice in that sense, you dont want to force anybody to take that approach but at the end of the day we know whats best for us as a group going forward.
The Golden St Warriors have had an incredible run, but its not over.
Mike Sullivan says Matt Murray will start for Penguins
Pittsburgh has outscored the Predators 15-4 on home ice, while the Predators have outscored the Penguins 9-2 in Nashville. The Pens got to the final with an excellent power play, opportunistic scoring at five-on-five, and great goaltending.
Owner Joe Lacob will be pulling out his pocketbook to potentially give Curry a $200 million deal.
I think that the first two games we talked about past year, you can go over all the shootarounds the walkthroughs you want to go through, but until you actually get on the floor and play against this team, it's tough.
"It has been a insane year for me", Durant said. They will make moves, get better as fast as they can, and hope a break or two falls their way.
To paraphrase the late, great sports writer Frank Deford with a modern twist, you can yell on social media and scream on TV about who the greatest is, but no one truly knows. Sure, someone amongst Draymond, Klay, Steph and Durant will shoot less (Draymond), but this was always more than that.
However, for much of the league, Curry's sentiment is right - the Warriors are getting started. "And I did that from day one, and I just tried to stay with that". "And when Steph turned that corner, I think it was after Christmas Day, when he turned that corner, we became nearly unbeatable". Shaun Livingston took his journey from a high school superstar to an nearly amputated leg, to the only moment of emotion in the second quarter with a fist pump, to the second ring in his career.
