And now, 29 teams will start chasing the champion Warriors

Posted June 20, 2017

Ever since Kevin Durant announced his decision to join the Golden State Warriors back on July 4 of previous year, the NBA Finals felt pre-determined.

"It would mean everything". After Golden State won in 2015, Cleveland put together an unprecedented comeback from 1-3 down to take the championship last season. It is a business. You made us believe. The Warriors won a league-record 14 consecutive games during this year's playoffs and went 16-1 overall in the postseason. "In the context of keeping the team together, if there are decisions that need to be made, we'll talk about it for sure".

Steve Kerr is expected to return to the Golden State Warriors' sideline after the team won its second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons under Kerr's direction on Monday night, Warriors general manager Bob Myers confirmed.

Durant said he has "no question" in his mind he will be back with the Warriors.

Despite his incredible performance, the Golden State Warriors simply had too many weapons. "It's easier said than done obviously, but that's the goal". At the end, we get to see a clash of the titans.

With the firepower of Durant plus the Splash Brothers and Draymond Green, Barry said, there could be more championships ahead. I have no reason to look back at what I could have done or what I shouldn't have done or what I could have done better for the team.

Curry and Durant also heard from former President Barack Obama with congratulations, though Durant said he was most excited that among 200 messages was a text from a high school girlfriend he didn't realize still had his number.

On Wednesday during exit interviews, Kevin Durant dismissed the notion that the Golden State Warriors are constructed as a super team.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr agreed that it was finally time to celebrate after a long but successful season. "For me to go out there and for the guys that allowed me to be the leader that I am and allow me and trust me that I'm going to make the right plays and I'm going to do the right things and have the right intention, that's a compliment to my guys. I still feel that way today". "It's kind of insane to think about the conversations we had this summer and going into the year about how we can both mesh and do what we do and be the players that we are and (to) see it come to life in this series, it was unbelievable".

"We're gonna party", said Oakland resident Achebe Thomas, while celebrating the win.
