Kevin Durant named NBA Finals MVP

Kevin Durant named NBA Finals MVP

After rocking the NBA a year ago with his decision to leave Oklahoma City as a free agent and sign with the Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant's dream came true Monday when Golden State beat Cleveland 129-120 to win the best-of-seven NBA Finals four games to one.

The two-time US Olympic gold medallist scored more than 30 points in each of the five games - the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 for the LA Lakers - and averaged 35.2 per game across the series.

The Golden State Warriors are NBA champions once again, and this time it's thanks largely to the newest addition to their starting five, Kevin Durant, who was awarded the NBA Finals MVP award for his play in the series.

Just days after his loss in the NBA Finals, Lebron James might have his eyes set on a new destination next summer. Super team? No, we just work extremely well together. "So we will see, but I will get away from the game a little bit".

Stephen Curry was still smiling and laughing about Golden State's second National Basketball Association title in three seasons when he made it clear the Warriors think they are just getting started hoisting trophies. In fact, it would have been far worse than past year as the Cavaliers would have been the first team to come back from tan 0-3 in the NBA Finals.

Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry in a team that won it all in 2015 and were runners-up past year after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games.

Were those teams as super as this year's Warriors? The Golden State Warriors are arguably going to be regarded as having the best playoff run of all time after barely surrendering one game to a star-studded Lebron James team.

Maybe LeBron isn't better than Jordan.

Think the franchise is proud of Durant and the Warriors' championship win? However, in these NBA Finals, Durant wasn't a hanger-on.

"Because I knew he wanted it", Wanda Durant responded.

Boston has the No. 1 pick in the draft to add to a team that went to the Eastern Conference finals this season. "Love you, girl, but I gots to do it. GOTS to do it, you understand me?"

James averaged 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists while shooting.564 from the field and.387 from three-point range against the Warriors. Then it was Golden State's time again, with Durant as the prized addition.

Hector Moreno headed a late equaliser for Mexico as they drew 2-2 with Portugal in their Confederations Cup opener . The result left European champion Portugal and Gold Cup victor Mexico trailing host Russian Federation in Group A.

Throughout these years it seemed that Durant wants a championship ring not because of himself, but as a gift to his mother and all the sacrifices that she made in order to provide a future for her son.
