Curry, Durant committed to keeping Golden State on top

But controversial policies and outlandish statements by President Donald Trump have upset many U.S. professional athletes, including players from the predominantly African American NBA.

"You don't want anybody to have to sacrifice in that sense", Curry said.

"We need to enjoy this to the fullest", star guard Stephen Curry told the crowd.

Durant's mother, Wanda, was in the building.

The talk recently surfaced when The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported that some people around the National Basketball Association think James may leave Cleveland for the Lakers or Clippers. It was a dream come true, a life realized.

"It's special team, a special group", Durant said. "And I know he wants to be here and we want him here". It was about the dream. But as far as that team, they're going to be here for a while.

"I couldn't sleep for the last two days", he said.

Kevin Durant no longer has to dream of his crowning moment. A lot of people doubted Steph, saying he wasn't going to be this good.

The Warriors are poised to dominate the league over the next several years, especially if Kevin Durant agrees to take less money to keep the team together. A title felt inevitable - and anything less would be a colossal failure.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James also took exception to the superteam moniker. He went from his rookie deal into an extension before he hit restricted free agency years back, signing a deal - four years, $44 million - that would prove to be far under his value. She said, "Look at me boy, look at me.' Your momma was about to spank your ass". Draymond, nobody wanted him.

This was not a title Durant won by riding anyone's coattails. At a defense's most important position, Love doesn't provide the rim protection Cleveland needs against Golden State.

"He was fantastic", Warriors owner Joe Lacob said after the game. "I'm just so happy to be a part of it".

"We just happy, man".

Durant had heard the criticism, of course, and apparently brushed it aside.

"Not only is there no guarantee he's coming back, I'm not sure there is an expectation he's re-signing there".

Durant's decision to depart the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Warriors was criticized by many, but winning the title provided redemption for the National Basketball Association star. Until Monday night, he'd always been denied those two things.

Steph Curry is the player's leader through action, not a lot of noise.

Instead, it could even be "likely" James will be L.A. bound. "I ain't doing no slaying".

"We did it", Durant shouted to his mother, Wanda, during a TV interview. He had the dunk-fest in Game 1, the block-fest in Game 2, the iconic 3 in Game 3 and the loud closing statement to help seal Game 5, taking home the Finals MVP trophy.

Two years ago, the Warriors' meteoric rise was touted as a metaphor for that of the city itself, which was beginning to shed its reputation as the crime-plagued and protest-studded stepchild of San Francisco to become the must-go destination featured in national and worldwide media.
