Kevin Durant, asked if he had a message for Rihanna as he left Oracle Arena late Monday night after his Golden State Warriors were crowned National Basketball Association champions, held aloft his Finals MVP trophy and stared at a video camera. "You still getting your ass whooped by your momma". "I just tried to stay with those principles and keep grinding". "You can talk about whatever happens on the outside, but inside those lines, I come to bring it every day", Durant said Monday night.
"You hear me? No matter what anybody says, you did it!" she said to Durant. "You did it! Look at me", Wanda Durant said grabbing her son's face.
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.
James had 41 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists and Irving added 26 points but the Cavs never could dig out of a hole created by a second-quarter barrage and ended their season with a 129-120 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night.
"Frankly, I think it's why Trump couldn't be more ill-suited to be president, because he's a blowhard", head coach Steve Kerr said in May, according to USA Today. In the San Francisco-Oakland market, the Game 5 broadcast delivered a 39.6 metered market rating and in the Cleveland market it generated a 37.1 rating.
Escaped Georgia inmates captured after chase in Tennessee
Some 15 minutes later, the two managed to escape their bonds and call police. "It's the two people from Georgia , escapees". This homeowner and his neighbor held the two suspects until authorities arrived and were able to successfully capture them.
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. This season was the Kevin Durant season.
"Is that why you kept pushing him so hard?" And I'm like, 'Bro, we're about to win the title'.
Neither recorded a personal knockout, and each walked away with even greater respect for the other than they had 12 days earlier. "I'm not happy at all", said James, the first player in NBA Finals history to average a triple-double. "Rather than talking about how to break up or knock down a championship-caliber team, my focus should be on how we do a better job developing more great players in this league".
"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant admitted. I've been put here for a specific objective: "to be a witness and to share my testimony as I go through it".
