Warriors, Durant storm to finals win

The Warriors finished 31-2 in their last 33 games.

The Warriors' victory on Monday night peaked with 29.5 million viewers and was an increase of 20 percent from the 20.9 million who watched Game 5 previous year.

The Warriors would have made the NBA Finals this season without the services of Durant. Then Curry carried Golden State while Durant healed from a left knee injury that sidelined him late in the regular season. According to OddsShark and Las Vegas, they aren't about to go anywhere any time soon.

After joining the Warriors in July 2016 - a decision which caused shockwaves in the National Basketball Association world among talk of a GSW "super team" - it took Durant just one season to win his first championship.

For the third year in succession, the two teams met in the Finals, but after going 3-0 down this time around, Cleveland were only able to pull one game back before the Warriors secured the trophy in game five. Sure, it's tough to bet against any LeBron James-led team, but the G Dubs just had too much fire power for The King and his Cavs to compete with this year.

At a rally after the parade, Green mocked James' contention that he had never played for a super team.

That helped LeBron James bring the first major sports championship to the city in more than 50 years.

One Warrior has already publicly stated he won't make the trip if the offer is placed on the table. But is that incredibly impressive for a 32-year-old man versus the tall glass of a team he was facing? Yes.

They are called the Golden State Warriors, but they don't belong to all of California.

He was asked if, given how well he'd played this season and in the playoffs, he'd recalibrated "how long you want to stay around".

There was debate all year about whether the Warriors and Cavaliers were good for the NBA, since it was essentially a foregone conclusion that these dominant teams would be square off in the NBA Finals.

The parade starts at 10 a.m.at Broadway and 11th Street downtown.
