Never Played For A Super Team? Twitter Roasts LeBron's Post Game Comment

Never Played For A Super Team? Twitter Roasts LeBron's Post Game Comment

High-profile recruit Durant was the difference as the Warriors wrapped up a 4-1 series triumph on home court in Oakland.

Iguodala, victor of Finals MVP in 2015 for his efforts in keeping LeBron James in check, again rose to the occasion when it counted and was extremely impressive on both ends of the court in the decisive game five, showing a spring in his step belying that of a 33-year-old as he racked up 20 of the Warriors' 129 points. He also had 13 rebounds and eight assists, giving him a triple-double average for the finals, an unprecedented feat. James' barreling drive and reverse layup past Durant had cut Golden State's lead to three, but Durant didn't wait long to answer. The Warriors won 129-120 t. Oh, there would be more partying, for sure.

Durant and Curry were always right in the middle, yet they stayed loose and focused by building their own relationship - not to mention shooting skills - through regular shooting contests that were oh so close.

Two titles in three years for Golden State.

"Way to go, Durant", he said in one clip.

'Significant progress' in Theresa May's talks with the DUP
The DUP leader declined to give details of what she termed a "positive engagement with the Conservative Party ". The stakes for May are high as lawmakers return for their first day of business Tuesday.

"I need to sit down and figure this thing out", James said.

James remained the ultimate teammate as he bared that what bothered him most with the loss is not giving his new teammates, like Kyle Korver, Deron Williams and Derrick Williams, the same championship feeling they had last season.

Sparked by 39 points from Durant, who left Oklahoma City last July in quest of his first crown, the Warriors took the best-of-seven series 4-1, reclaiming the throne they lost to the Cavaliers a year ago.

"I had a letdown previous year", Green said. "He's had an incredible career, but he just took it to the next level", coach Steve Kerr said.

During the trophy ceremony, Golden State Coach Steve Kerr said, "I want to say a special thank you to Mike Brown and my whole coaching staff".

No reports of Poles in London towering inferno: FM
Some 50 people are being treated in hospitals after a massive fire set a 24-story apartment block in west London ablaze overnight. The firefighters were battling to rescue people trapped inside the tower block in west London , The Guardian reported.

Kerr still found time to crack a joke on the stage afterward: "Well, we had very little talent, actually, it was mostly coaching".

Durant stretches the @warriors lead back up to 8! "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. His fans and supporters still believe he's one of the National Basketball Association greats and the championship simply solidified it, while his critics still believe he's the biggest ring-chaser of all-time. "So you have a clear sense of what matters when you go through that stuff". Whatever it is, the big-money contract will be a hefty raise from the $12 million he earned on the way to a 16-1 postseason.

In fact, Mayor Schaaf says the City of Oakland could not be proud of the dubs winning it all and doing it at home, the first Bay Area sports team to clinch a championship at home since the Oakland Athletics did it in 1974. "So, this is the culmination of a year where they grew together and learned each other's games and got better and better all year, and it was just phenomenal to be part of".

"You won't hold your head down".

As a fresh National Basketball Association champions cap sat a tad off-kilter on his head, Kevin Durant embraced mother Wanda. "It's tough to get back and get matched, especially with their speed".
